Created: 11/01/2013 10:01 PM KSTP.com

Jason Pominville scored two goals, including the game-winner late in the third period, to lead the Minnesota Wild over the Montreal Canadiens 4-3 on Friday night.

Pominville scored the winner from just outside the left crease, beating goalie Carey Price and notching his team-leading ninth goal with 5:28 left.

Justin Fontaine and Nino Niederreiter also scored for Minnesota.

Brendan Gallagher, P.K. Subban and Brian Gionta scored for Montreal, which rallied from a 3-1 third-period deficit but couldn't win its third straight game.

Pominville gave Minnesota a 2-1 lead in the second after he corralled a long lead pass from Mikael Granlund and beat Price through the five-hole on a breakaway.
