BUFFALO, N.Y. - Mike Fisher ended Nashville's franchise-record scoring drought in the first period and the Predators beat the Buffalo Sabres 3-2 on Wednesday night to snap a three-game losing streak.

Fisher ended the Predators' goalless skid at 227:39, and Craig Smith and Cody Hodgson also scored. Carter Hutton made 30 saves.

The Predators were outscored 11-0 over the first three games of this five-game trip, which ends Friday in Philadelphia. They hadn't scored since the second period of a 3-2 win over the Anaheim Ducks on Nov. 17.

Evander Kane and Jack Eichel scored for the Sabres.

The loss was Buffalo's sixth straight, and they've only scored seven goals and collected two points in that time.

Over the first two periods, Buffalo outshot Nashville 25-11 but trailed 3-0.
