BUFFALO, N.Y. - Shea Weber had a goal and an assist and the Nashville Predators won their second straight road game with a 4-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

Nick Spaling, Craig Smith and Paul Gaustad also scored for Nashville, which got 24 saves from Carter Hutton.

Drew Stafford scored for Buffalo, which has lost three in a row.

Hutton staved off a Buffalo attack that controlled possession and outshot Nashville 11-5 in the second period on the way to a 25-24 advantage for the game.

The Predators arrived in Buffalo after 2 a.m. after Monday's game at Ottawa and skipped their morning skate before having to fight off a slow start to Tuesday's game.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.

— Winnipeg Jets coach Paul Maurice on Mathieu Perreault, who scored two goals in win against Chicago Blackhawks on Tuesday
