Brunette leads Wild past Sabres

Sep 29, 2008 - 1:57 AM BUFFALO, New York (Ticker) -- Andrew Brunette scored the equalizing goal with 2:57 left in the third period and netted the game-winner in the fourth round of the shootout as the Minnesota Wild posted a 2-1 preseason victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday.

Brunette, who returned to Minnesota as a free agent this offseason after spending the last three years with Colorado, beat Patrick Lalime to the glove side with a forehand from five feet out.

Jochen Hecht's tally just 13 seconds into the second period gave Buffalo a 1-0 lead. However, Brunette tied the game at 1-1 on a power-play tally off assists from Benoit Pouliot and Kim Johnsson at the 17:03 mark of the third.

Niklas Backstrom stopped 28 shots for Minnesota. Lalime made 18 saves for Buffalo, which held a 29-19 edge in shots.
