There is something about when the Leafs and Sabres do battle at the HSBC Arena. The games played at HSBC Arena between these two teams are always high energy both on and off the ice. It's sometimes hard to tell if it is the Sabres or the Leafs that are at home. I often think that Leafs fans are louder in HSBC Arena than they are at the Air Canada Centre. Maybe it's because of the outrageous ticket prices in Toronto and the fact that most of the seats are sold to the Suits (Business People) instead of the regular fans.

When these two teams meet you can throw away the records because it is usually a good hockey game regardless of record. It is the first meeting between these two teams this season although there is a history between the Sabres and Leafs and there is also a history between the Sabres and Ron Wilson from the Eastern Conference Finals when Wilson was coaching the Capitals.

Expect a good game and don't forget to get your SPG picks in before face off.
