Wild hand Sabres seventh straight loss

(TSX / STATS) -- BUFFALO, N.Y. -- With a critical stretch of the schedule looming, the Minnesota Wild took care of business Wednesday night.

Nino Niederreiter and Mikael Granlund scored two goals apiece to lead the Wild to a 5-4 victory over the Buffalo Sabres. It was a sloppy game with defensive breakdowns by both teams.

"It was an ugly game on both sides but I think we persevered," Wild coach Bruce Boudreau said. "I thought this was an important game for us to win considering how many games we've got against the Central Division coming up and how many teams are playing and going to gain points tonight. We don't want to get too far behind the loop."
