The Nashville Predators took out a season of frustration on the NHL's worst team beating Buffalo 6-1 Thursday in Nashville.

The Predators blew the game open immediately with four goals in the first period.  

Colton Sissons scored his first career NHL goal to make it a 1-0.  Victor Stahlberg fed Colin Wilson for an easy goal for the Preds second goal.  

Then another rookie scored his first career goal when Calle Jarnkrok made it 3-0.  

It was also a big night for Predators Captain Shea Weber who scored his 19th and 20th goals of the season.  

It's the second time in the all-star defenseman's career he's scored 20 goals in a season.

Eric Nystrom scored Nashville's final goal of the evening.

Carter Hutton gave Pekka Rinne the night off in net saving 27 of 28 shots.
