The Buffalo Sabres road trip lasted one game too long, as the team couldn't keep up with the Nashville Predators Thursday night.

Scoring four goals in the first period — and chasing Sabres' goaltender Matt Hackett from the net in doing so — the Predators cruised to a 6-1 victory over the visiting Sabres, who were on their fifth game of a five-game road trip.

The Predators' scoring started 6:26 into the first as Colton Sissons scored his first of the year on a wrist shot. Colin Wilson notched his eighth of the year five minutes and 18 seconds later. Calle Jarnkrok made it 3-0 a mere 9 seconds later. It was Jarnkrok's first goal of the 2013-2014 season as well. Shea Weber rounded out the first period scoring at 19:17, scoring a power play goal on a slapshot.

The Sabres mustered a mere four shots in the first period while the Predators had four goals on 15 shots.

The second period started with a sign of life from the Blue and Gold as Rasmus Ristolainen made it 4-1, 2:06 into the period with a slap shot of his own. It would be the Sabres only goal of the night, however.

Weber scored his second of the night and 20th of the season at 6:19 with a slapshot, and Eric Nystrom finished the scoring with a goal at 19:20 of the third period. It was his 14th of the year.

With the loss, the Sabres are now 20-45-8 on the season. They play at home on Saturday against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Former Sabres goaltender Dominik Hasek will be honored with a spot in the Sabres Hall of Fame prior to the game.
