Jason Pominville assisted on three Wild goals in their 5-4 overtime win against the Blues on Saturday night.

The 30-year-old veteran is coming off a very strong season in which he put up 30 goals and 30 assists, and there should be no reason he can’t replicate something close to that line this season. Mikko Koivu had two points, with the game-winning goal and an assist. Mikael Granlund, Erik Haula, Thomas Vanek and Matt Dumba notched the other markers. Darcy Kuemper set aside 19 of 23 shots he faced.

Jason Pominville scored three goals in the third period to lead the Minnesota Wild to a 4-1 preseason victory Monday night over the Pittsburgh Penguins, who played once again without superstar Sidney Crosby.

The Penguins announced Sunday that Crosby would make his preseason debut at Xcel Energy Center, but he returned to Nova Scotia for the funeral of his grandmother, who died Saturday. Pominville broke a 1-1 tie when he converted a pass from Zach Parise at 8:39 of the third period. He scored again at 12:57 and completed his hat trick by hitting the empty net with 20 seconds remaining. Parise opened the scoring with a power-play goal in the first period. Pittsburgh tied it on a goal by Steve Downie at 15:33 of the second. That was the only one of the Penguins' 33 shots to beat goaltender Darcy Kuemper.

Jason Pominville recorded a goal and added an assist in a 5-2 win over Colorado in Game 6 on Monday night.

Jason Pominville led the Wild with 30 goals in regular season, but he hasn't found the back of the net in the playoffs.

"Not at all," he said when asked if he feels pressure to score goals. "I don't want to add any pressure to do anything more. I don't want to go out of my way to start cheating and looking for offense. You can bring a lot of different things to the team when you're on the ice aside from scoring. Obviously, you'd like to score. I would like to get on board. But I can't start cheating and creating something that maybe isn't there by not sticking to the plan or system." Pominville has earned an assist in each of the Wild's last three games.

Jason Pominville tied for 16th in the NHL with 30 goals, led the Wild with 60 points and recorded three points twice in Minnesota's final three regular-season games.

So the team obviously is counting on Pominville to help out in a big way in the first round of the playoffs, when Minnesota faces the Colorado Avalanche. Pominville, 31, often is overshadowed by captain Mikko Koivu and second-leading scorer Zach Parise, but there is no doubt the Wild will be expecting production from Pominville against the Avalanche. "He can do it in so many different ways," NBC analyst Pierre McGuire said. "He’s a 5-on-5 scorer, he’s a power-play threat, both from the top of the circle and also up by the blue line because he’s a great distributor and he can also shoot the wicked one-timer. You put it all together, and he might be the most well-rounded player on their team in terms of being a pure scorer, a really good defensive player and a special teams specialist. There are other guys that are flashier — Koivu, Parise. But Jason Pominville just does his job all the time."

Jason Pominville scored a goal and had two assists in the Minnesota Wild's 7-3 loss to the visiting Nashville Predators Sunday night.

The former Sabre completes the regular season with respectable numbers -- 30 goals and 30 assists. Erik Haula (sixth) and Zach Parise (29th) also scored goals for the Wild Sunday. Minnesota entered play Sunday without a regulation loss in its past seven games. That streak came to an ugly end in its final regular-season tuneup before the Stanley Cup playoffs. As the Western Conference's first wild card, Minnesota will face the Colorado Avalanche in the opening playoff round, beginning Thursday.
