Home and Home Battle of The Atlantic – Toronto Maple Leafs
Ok- so it doesn’t seem like much of a battle this year, given the success of the Maple Leafs and the struggles of the Sabres – but this will be the first meeting of the two teams since the preseason show down which saw Phil Kessel go Paul Bunyan on John Scott – and a full line brawl that included guys coming off the bench – and a one sided goalie fight.
It is going to be long weekend if the Sabres want to dwell on the past – despite the fact that Phil Kessel received nothing more than a slap on the wrist for wielding a deadly weapon against their enforcer.
Buffalo plays at home against the Maple Leafs on Friday night at 7PM before transferring the competition to the Air Canada Centre on Saturday at 7PM.
Will the Buffalo Sabres get a win at home this week?
Can they string together two wins?
Will the organization make any player/personnel moves?
