Sabres 3, Predators 2

Associated Press  |  Last updated December 03, 2011
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. The Predators broke the shutout at the 4:54 mark of the third period when Smith scored on the power play from the middle of the left circle. His shot bounced off Miller and went over his shoulder. Ennis scored the winner with 4:15 left with a shot from inside the left circle. With 1:35 to play, Legwand beat Miller from low in the right circle. Miller stopped 32 shots for the Sabres, who managed only 14 shots in the game. Notes: It was the sixth time this season that Adam has posted two points in a game. Smith has six points (one goal, five assists) in his last six games. ... Chris Mueller was recalled by Nashville from Milwaukee of the AHL on Saturday and played in his first NHL game of the season. ... Ville Leino added two assists for Buffalo. ... The Predators have scored nine power-play goals in their last eight games. ... This was the only meeting between the two teams this season.
