KEY GAME INFORMATION
BUFFALO: BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Sabres coach Ron Rolston is tempering his initial expectations after all the changes the team made over the past year.
Rolston is opening his first full season after taking over in February when Lindy Ruff was fired. And he's overseeing a roster that's been transformed following the team's youth movement over the past two seasons.
And more changes could be in store with goalie Ryan Miller and forward Thomas Vanek's futures uncertain beyond this season.
That has led Rolston to caution that he doesn't expect the Sabres to start revealing their true potential until a few months into the season.
Patience remains the watchword in Buffalo, for a franchise that's missed the playoffs in four of the past six seasons.
The Sabres open at Detroit on Oct. 2.
NASHVILLE: NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Making the playoffs has become so automatic for the Nashville Predators that they didn't react well to finishing below .500 for the first time in a decade.
They went shopping in a very big way hoping to make sure thatdoesn't happen again.
The Predators opened free agency signing five of the seven players they added on the first day. Right wing Viktor Stalberg from Stanley Cup champ Chicago is the key addition, and they also added Eric Nystrom, and Matt Hendricks and center Matt Cullen, who helped Carolina win the Stanley Cup in 2006.
"It shows all the commitment," captain Shea Weber said. "They made those moves, and they addressed the needs we have. They filled some spots, and obviously everyone's going to see what those guys are capable of. And we're going to see what they can do in the locker room as well."
Nashville will be looking for its eighth playoff berth in a decade this season trying to bounce back from a 16-23-9 record that put them 14th in the Western Conference.
"We feel like we're back to having the depth and the pieces to do what we need to do," Nashville coach Barry Trotz said.
The Predators will need scoring from the new players.
They averaged just 2.27 goals per game last season, tying Florida for the worst scoring average in the NHL. Stalberg is expected to be the biggest addition if he can prove that all he needed was more playing time after struggling to find ice time behind the offensive stars in Chicago. He tied for fifth in goals in Chicago despite ranking 20th in minutes per game last season.
"All the guys in the locker room expect us to be back in the playoffs this year and to make a run," Stalberg said. "We got what it takes in here. It's a matter of putting it all together and finding a way to win hockey games."

*Sabres-Predators Preview* ==========================

By NICOLINO DIBENEDETTO STATS Writer

Buffalo (20-44-8) at Nashville (31-31-11), 8:00 p.m. EDT

A meeting with the NHL-worst Buffalo Sabres could be just what the Nashville Predators need to avoid the longest home losing streak in franchise history.

The Predators look to snap a six-game skid on their own ice by beating the injury-riddled Sabres at home for the first time in over 10 years Thursday night.

Nashville (31-31-11) is nine points back of Phoenix for the Western Conference's second wild-card spot with nine games remaining for both teams.

If the Predators miss the playoffs for a second straight season, they could point to their recent struggles at Bridgestone Arena. They've gone 0-5-1 in the last six there to match the team-record skid for the fourth time and first since April 4-15.

Nashville equaled the mark Tuesday as it failed to build on a pair of road wins by losing 5-4 in a shootout to Colorado.

"It felt like one of those games where you deserve to win it by the way you played, but you need to give a lot of credit to their team," center Matt Cullen said.

Cullen scored twice to give him three goals and three assists in the past three games after he had five points over his previous 20.

Defenseman Shea Weber leads the Predators with 46 points but hasn't managed any during the home losing streak. He had a goal and an assist in a 4-1 road win over Buffalo (20-44-8) on March 11.

Weber, though, has no points in three career home meetings with the Sabres, and Nashville has dropped each of them dating to a 4-1 win Nov. 29, 2003.

Buffalo will likely finish the season with the fewest points in the NHL, and it's lost nine of 10 while totaling 11 goals. Scoring has been an issue all season, as the Sabres have been shut out 10 times to tie the franchise record set in 1996-97.

They were blanked again Tuesday, falling 2-0 to Montreal while dropping to 1-3-0 on this five-game road trip. To make matters worse, defenseman Tyler Myers (upper body) and right wing Torrey Mitchell (undisclosed) suffered injuries.

They're added to an injured list that includes goaltenders Jhonas Enroth (lower body) and Michal Neuvirth (lower body) and center Zenon Konopka (back).

"Almost every game somebody goes down. It's one of those things, when things go bad, I guess they go bad," coach Ted Nolan told the team's official website.

Matt Hackett is expected to make back-to-back starts for the first time since being recalled from Rochester of the AHL on March 17.

Hackett had 33 saves against the Canadiens after making 35 in a 3-1 win at Edmonton last Thursday, his first victory since beating Phoenix 3-2 in a shootout with Minnesota on March 8, 2012.

"He played well the last two games, particularly last game in Montreal," Nolan said. "I thought he was the difference maker. It could've been a lot worse, but he kept us in the game."
