Sabres snap three-game skid with win over Predators

The Buffalo Sabres snapped a three-game skid with a 5-3 road victory over the Nashville Predators on Saturday night. With the win, Buffalo improved to 21-18-2 on the season.

The game was knotted at three after two periods of play, but Buffalo came out in the third period and played really well. Kyle Okposo scored what would be the game-winning shorthanded goal and Jack Quinn later added one to cap off a two-goal period.

Jeff Skinner, Dylan Cozens, and Victor Oloffson also found the back of the net. Ukko-Pekka Luukkonen made 38 saves, including several big ones late in the game.
