BUFFALO, N.Y. - Marcus Foligno, Matt Moulson and Matt Ellis scored in the third period to lift the Buffalo Sabres to a 4-2 win over the Winnipeg Jets on Tuesday night.

It was Buffalo's first regulation win since Nov. 15 against Toronto, when interim head coach Ted Nolan took over for the fired Ron Rolston.

Buffalo's Steve Ott also scored.

Mark Schiefele scored two goals in 36 seconds to build a 2-0 second-period lead for the Jets, who have lost four of their past five games.

Buffalo outshot Winnipeg 31-27 as 12 different Sabres recorded points.
