The Buffalo Sabres extended their win streak to six games with a great
road home win against a desperate team. Everyone knew the Leafs were going to play with a purpose tonight and the Sabres did just enough to win. The Leafs had three first period power plays that were killed off by the Sabres penalty killers. The Sabres answered with two power play goals in the first period after Tim Connolly was cut with a high stick.
Tyler Myers had a power play goal in the first and he added a second power play goal in the second period. Both power play goals were the result of pinching in at the perfect time. Myers looks more like a veteran on the ice instead of a 19 year-old rookie.
The Leafs never gave up and pinned the Sabres in their zone for most of the third period. Toronto managed to score twice in the third period but Miller turned away 20 shots in the third period. Miller made a career high 48 saves in the game and was the biggest reason the Sabres extended their win streak to six games.
