Shea Weber had a goal and an assist and the Nashville Predators beat the Buffalo Sabres 4-1

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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
