The Minnesota Wild beat the Winnipeg Jets 4-3 in a shootout Saturday night at the Xcel Energy Center in a pre season game last night.

WCCO TV reports that Jason Pomniville's shootout goal was the difference maker for the Wild.

The Jets rallied back from a 2-0 deficit after the first period to take a 3-2 lead following three second period goals. But Ryan Suter evened the score at three to force overtime.

Nicholas Backstrom stopped 28 shots for the Wild.
