Luke Adam had a goal and an assist to lead the Buffalo Sabres over the Nashville Predators 3-2 on Saturday night.
Zack Kassian and Tyler Ennis also scored for Buffalo.
Craig Smith and David Legwand scored for Nashville.
Anders Lindback made his third start of the season for the Predators and gave up two goals in the first period.
Adam was the first to score. With the puck loose in the slot, Adam gained control and beat Lindback over his right shoulder 10 minutes into the game.
Kassian broke loose on a breakaway and fired a backhand shot from low in the slot that also went over Lindback's right shoulder.
With 4:06 left in the second period, Nashville's Jordin Tootoo crashed into Sabres goalie Ryan Miller, knocking him out of the net and onto the ice. The collision prompted a pileup of players. Tootoo was given a major penalty for charging and a game misconduct.
Miller, activated from injured reserve Friday, had missed eight games as the result of a head injury.
