Sam Reinhart scored for the third time in five games, but the Buffalo Sabres dropped a 2-1 contest to the Nashville Predators at Bridgestone Arena on Saturday.
Craig Smith scored the winning goal for Nashville on the power play with 6:29 remaining. Ryan Johansen also scored for the Predators, while Pekka Rinne made 29 saves.
Linus Ullmark made 35 saves for the Sabres.
Reinhart opened the scoring for the Sabres with 1:02 remaining in the first period. The play was a product of a tremendous cross-ice feed from Rasmus Dahlin, who split three defenders from the right half wall to set up Reinhart at the back door.
