Kyle Okposo scored twice to help the Buffalo Sabres beat the Winnipeg Jets 3-1 on Sunday.

Brian Gionta also scored for Buffalo, and Robin Lehner made 37 saves.

Nickolaj Ehlers scored for Winnipeg early in the third period.

Okposo opened the scoring midway through the first period, regaining control of his own blocked shot and driving it over goalie Michael Hutchinson's shoulder. Brian Gionta made it 2-0 less than 2 minutes later, and Okposo beat Hutchinson again, this time high on his stick side, to make it 3-0 in the second.
