BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) – Rookie forward Filip Forsberg scored the decisive goal in the fourth round of a shootout, leading the Nashville Predators to a 2-1 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday night.

Nashville overcame a 1-0 deficit on Mike Ribeiro’s power-play goal with 4:17 left in the third period.

Backup goalie Carter Hutton stopped 16 shots through overtime and allowed just one shootout goal.

The NHL-leading Predators (40-13-7) went 1-1-1 during a three-game road swing and avoided their first three-game skid of the season.

Nashville was playing its third game in four nights, following a 3-2 shootout loss at Philadelphia on Saturday.
