NASHVILLE — With new Buffalo Sabres goaltender stealing three points earlier this week against the Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins, the Blue & Gold was in danger of climbing out of the NHL basement — and greatly reducing their odds at the number one pick in the upcoming NHL draft.

A 3-0 loss Saturday night at the hands of the Nashville Predators helped, though, in the eyes of those who want the Sabres to be the best at losing.

The game went nearly 35 minutes without a goal as Sabres netminder Matt Hacket fought off an aggressive Nashville squad. Then at 14:52 of the second period, Taylor Beck scored for the Predators on the power play, assisted by Shea Weber and Matt Cullen.

In the third period, Craig Smith made it 2-0 Nashville at 5:49, assisted by Ryan Ellis and Cullen. Finally at 15:01, Mike Fisher put Nashville up 3-0, assisted by Viktor Stalberg and Ellis.

With 10 games to go, the Sabres remain three points behind the Arizona Coyotes and four points behind the Edmonton Oilers. The last place team is guaranteed either the first or second pick in the 2015 NHL draft. Buffalo and Arizona play twice in the last 10 games. Their next game is Monday in Dallas against the Stars.
