RALEIGH, N.C. - Jason Pominville scored a goal in regulation and the game-winner in the shootout to lift the Minnesota Wild over the Carolina Hurricanes 3-2 on Saturday night.

Justin Fontaine got the tying goal midway through the second period and Josh Harding made 27 saves for Minnesota, which won for the seventh time in nine games.

Carolina was 0 for 3 on the power play, while Minnesota finished 0 of 4.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
