The Predators snapped a six-game home losing streak in style on Thursday, scoring early and often in a 6-1 win over Buffalo.

Nashville scored four first-period goals off the sticks of Colton Sissons, Colin Wilson, Calle Jarnkrok and Shea Weber to put the Sabres in a hole that was too deep to get out of.

It was the Predators' first win at Bridgestone Arena since beating Tampa Bay on Feb. 27.

The offensive outburst, which included points from 12 Predators, marked the first time Nashville has scored four goals in one period all season. The team record for goals in a period is six, set against Columbus back in 2005.

Sissons set the tone by scoring on a rebound of a Rich Clune shot for his first career goal six minutes into the game.

"I thought we came out with the right approach," Predators coach Barry Trotz said. "We were ready to go and it paid off. The first couple of shifts were sloppy, but after that I think once we scored the first goal we started getting some confidence and going from there to get a big lead in the first."

Buffalo avoided the shutout with a goal from Rasmus Ristolainen in the early moments of the second period, but Weber squashed any momentum the Sabres may have picked with his second goal of the game just four minutes later.

Weber moved into a tie with Ottawa's Erik Karrlson (20 goals) for the most goals by an NHL defenseman this season. It is the second time Weber has scored 20 goals.
