ST. PAUL, Minn. -- The Buffalo Sabres scored three goals in the first period over the Minnesota Wild Tuesday night -- two in 20 seconds -- enough to beat the Wild 3-2 at the Xcel Center.

The win, the Sabres second in two games, puts the Sabres at 17-22-4 on the season.

Jamie McGinn notched the Sabres' first goal at 9:37 of the first, assisted by Evander Kane and Ryan O'Reilly. Rasmus Ristolainen made it 2-0 at 17:30, assisted by Brian Gionta. Gionta then scored a goal of his own just 20 seconds later at 17:50, assisted by Josh Gorges and Marcus Foligno.

From there, it was up to Sabres netminder Linus Ullmark.

Ryan Suter scored a short-handed goal for Minnesota at 12:57 of the second period, assisted by Erik Haula and Jared Spurgeon.

Former Sabre Thomas Vanek made it a close contest, landing a goal for the Wild with just 52 seconds to play in regulation. Ryan Suter and Mikael Granlund assisted on the goal, which made it 3-2 in favor of Buffalo.

The Sabres return home to face the Boston Bruins on Friday and Washington Capitals on Saturday before heading back out west to play Phoenix and Colorado.
