BUFFALO — Through 55 minutes and 42 seconds, the Nashville Predators couldn't get a goal past Buffalo Sabres netminder Michal Neuvirth. The one they got at 15:43 of the third period was enough to buy them extra time.

The Predators' tying goal send the game to overtime, where Nashville's two shots against Neuvirth were both stopped. Then in the shootout, the visiting team managed to get two of its four shots past the Sabres goalie, enough for the road win.

The Sabres lone regulation goal came in the closing seconds of the second period when Tyler Ennis scored at 19:46, assisted by Zemgus Girgensons and Matt Moulson. In the shootout, Ennis blasted a shot past Nashville netminder Carter Hutton.

The Sabres next play Tuesday when they visit the Columbus Bluejackets.


  • With the loss, Buffalo falls to 7-3 in the shootout this season (64-49 all-time).
  • The Sabres went 7-for-8 on the penalty kill tonight. It was the first time Buffalo has killed off seven penalties in a game since March 8, 2011 at PIT (7-for-7).
  • Neuvirth stopped 37 of 38 shots tonight and is now 1-2-2 in the five games since the Sabres traded Jhonas Enroth to Dallas, logging a .951 save percentage and a 1.73 goals-against average in those games.
  • Neuvirth is now 2-0-1 in three career games against the Predators with a .959 save percentage and a 1.29 goals-against average.
  • With his assist tonight, Moulson has extended his point streak to three games (1+2).
  • Zach Bogosian led all Sabres in ice time for the fifth straight game with a TOI of 28:07. Bogosian has averaged 28:08 of ice time in five games with the Sabres, logging seven shots, 26 hits and 16 blocked shots.
