No Comeback

The Sabres were not able to make the big comeback that was needed, this time, and lost to the Tornonto Maple Leafs 4-1. The Sabres have gone from scoring 20 goals in their last three games, to scoring 21 goals in their last four. Point is Toronto should have been an easy win, and by not picking up the W Buffalo is making things hard on itself.

The Sabres did score their one goal on the powerplay, but failed to score on three chances with a two man advantage that combined for a total just shy of three minutes. Toronto was taking tons of penalties, even bad ones like "unsportsmanlike conduct" and "too many men on the ice", but Buffalo failed to take ahold of those oppertunites to win the game.

Vesa Toskala, who in just the past week let in a shorthanded goal from the far end of the ice, showed up big in this game. Toskala may have been the reason Toronto won, as the Sabres actually finished the game with more shots.
