Maple Leafs Beat Sabres 2-0
It hasn’t been an easy season for our Buffalo Sabres. Just last night they lost two-zip against the Toronto Maple Leafs. With that victory, The Maple Leafs were able to move eight points ahead of the struggling Sabres heading into Friday’s rematch at First Niagara Center.
“We need to get one and it will make the boys in here feel good and hopefully we can string them on from there,” Sabres forward Drew Stafford told NHL.com on the subject of a win. “We’ve got a great opportunity in the rematch in a couple days.”
Stafford was all alone in front of the Leafs net with an early chance to score, but couldn’t get the puck in. Buffalo goaltender Ryan Miller, who has had much success against the Leafs during his career, struggled against them the past two seasons.
Sabres coach Lindy Ruff expressed frustration about a bias he believes officials have against Kaleta.
“He’s a marked man, definitely a marked man,” Ruff said “When Kadri can do what he did on (Jordan) Leopold which is very similar and Kaleta does it and doesn’t leave his feet, I don’t think he hit him that hard. It used to be a good hit in the game and you get a penalty – I’m worried about him. I’m worried that he can’t play his game.”
