Smith's late power-play goal leads Predators over Sabres 2-1

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) Special teams have been a struggle for the Nashville Predators all season. But on Saturday night, that unit won them a hockey game.

Craig Smith's power-play goal with 6:29 remaining in the third period propelled Nashville to a 2-1 victory over the Buffalo Sabres.

With Sabres captain Jack Eichel in the penalty box serving a tripping penalty, Smith redirected Kyle Turris' shot off the left post, then off of the left leg of Buffalo goaltender Linus Ullmark and into the net for Smith's 11th goal of the season.
