BUFFALO -- After falling behind 3-0 to the Nashville Predators, the Buffalo Sabres attempted a comeback, but fell short, losing 3-2 Wednesday night.

Evander Kane and Jack Eichel scored late-period goals in the second and third periods, respectively, in the losing effort.

Nashville goals came from Mike Fisher -- at 13:52 of the first period, assisted by Colin Wilson and Ryan Ellis; Craig Smith -- 55 seconds into the second period, assisted by Mattias Ekholkm; and former Buffalo Sabre Cody Hodson -- at 6:29 of the second period, assisted by Gabriel Bourque and Calle Jarnkrok.

Sabres goals were scored by Kane -- at 18:22 of the second period, assisted by Rasmus Ristolainen and Josh Gorges; and Eichel -- at 18:41 of the third period, assisted by Ryan O'Reilly and Zach Bogosian.

The Sabres faced only 20 shots on the night with starting goaltender Linus Ullmark allowing three goals on only eight shots. Chad Johnson came into replace him, stopping all 12 shots he faced.

The Sabres, now 8-12-2), have lost six straight games.
