JavaScript/REGEX: First word that begins with

Using JavaScript and REGEX, how can I get the first word that begins with something?

This does NOT work:

var xyz = 'hello id123 world';
alert ( ( xyz.match(/id+[0-9](\b|$)/) ) ? xyz.match(/id+[0-9](\b|$)/)[0] : '');
// should alert 123

The "+" should be after the "]", not before the "[".
