SAINT PAUL, MINN. — The Minnesota Wild doubled up on the Buffalo Sabres Thursday night, taking the game 6-3.

The game had a wild start itself with five goals in the first 10 minutes of play.

Buffalo started the scoring just 1:03 into the game with a Rasmus Ristolainen goal — a Matt Moulson shot he deflected. Zemgus Girgensons got the other assist on the goal. Ryan Carter tied it for Minnesota at 6:07, assisted by Kyle Brodziak and Justin Fontaine. Nino Niederreiter made it 2-0 Wild just 7 seconds later on a wrist shot, assisted by Charlie Coyle. Ten seconds after that, Girgensons tied it up for the Sabres with help from Tyler Ennis and Nakita Zadarov. Less than three minutes later — at 9:21 — Brodziak made it 3-2 Minnesota, assisted by Fontaine and Carter. Then Niederreiter scored a power play goal with help from Mikael Granlund and Matt Dumba at 17:52.

The game slowed considerably in the second period with Minnesota's Jared Spurgeon scoring the lone goal, a wrist shot assisted by former Sabre Jason Pominville and Mikko Koivu.

In the third, Torrey Mitchell made it 5-3 with a snap shot, assisted by Drew Stafford and Nicolas Deslauriers at 12:56. Nino Niederreiter made it 6-3 at 17:32 on a wrist shot, with Charlie Coyle and Ryan Suter helping.

Minnesota outshot Buffalo 39-28 and the team had all three of the Three Stars of the game: Niederreiter, Spurgeon and Fontaine.

The Sabres next play Toronto at First Niagara Center at 7 p.m. Saturday.
