Game three of our season series with the Buffalo Sabres as we welcome them to the right side of Niagara Falls.
The Buds won last time out against Detroit in rather unconvincing fashion as the team threw away a lead and nearly fell to a defeat. The performance was not great but the two points were mighty fine.
Now we welcome the worst side the NHL to our rink for the first time this season with the expectation that we can just about seal our place at the spring dance.
The Sabres have two wins in their last 11 games. The Leafs have won their last 13 games at the ACC.
