BUFFALO, N.Y. - Ondrej Pavelec made 29 saves to help the Winnipeg Jets snap a three-game skid with a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.
Andrew Ladd's goal that made it 2-0 early in the second period stood up as the winner, and Bryan Little also scored for Winnipeg. The Jets won for the third time in 10 games while opening a season-high five-game road swing.
Jason Pominville scored for Buffalo, once again booed by its home crowd. The Sabres are 4-9-1 in their past 14 and have dropped consecutive home games for the first time since last February.
Pavelec, who was playing his 200th NHL game, made 11 third-period saves for a Jets team that continues to have difficulty generating offence. Winnipeg has gone seven games without scoring three goals in regulation.
