Nashville Predators

Skinner scores twice as Sabres beat Predators 4-1

Matt Duchene scored the lone goal and Juuse Saros made 17 saves for Nashville, which saw its five-game winning streak come to an end.

With Nashville on a power play, Duchene found a loose puck in the low slot and swatted it by Dell for his third power-play goal in two games.

With under a minute remaining in the second period, Dell skated to the left wall to play a loose puck.

Predators forward Eeli Tolvanen was skating down the wall in pursuit of the puck, and Dell leaned into the Finnish winger, knocking him to the ice.

Later in the game, Dell drew a penalty against Nashville rookie Tanner Jeannot , who drove toward the Buffalo net and collided with the goaltender.
