CALGARY, Alberta (AP) Jason Pominville scored twice to help the Minnesota Wild beat the Calgary Flames 4-3 Monday night, snapping a three-game winless skid.

Pominville has four goals in six games since being acquired from Buffalo at the NHL trade deadline in a deal that sent two prospects and two draft picks to the Sabres.

Mikko Koivu and Pierre-Marc Bouchard also scored for Minnesota, which began a three-game road trip that continues Tuesday night in Edmonton. The Wild moved past St. Louis into sixth place in the Western Conference and three points behind Northwest Division-leading Vancouver.

Jiri Hudler, Sven Baertschi and Ben Hanowski _ making his NHL debut _ scored for Calgary. Hanowski played at St. Cloud State and led his team to last week's NCAA Frozen Four tournament.
