The Buffalo Sabres, at this point in the season, are no strangers to having a win taken out from under them in the last few moments of a game. Similar to last night’s match against the Philadelphia Flyers, tonight, the Buffalo Sabres lost in a seemingly competitive game.

The Toronto Maple Leafs took the lead in the first period by scoring the first, and only, goal in 18 minutes. The goal was unassisted and scored by Leaf’s right wing Phil Kessel, 81, making hat his 22nd goal of the season.

Going into the second period, the Buffalo Sabres were ready for battle. Sabres player, Matt Ellis scored the first goal of the period to tie the game. Matt Moulson followed with his 15th goal of the season giving the Buffalo Sabres a 2-1 lead. The Maple Leafs soon responded with two more goals scored by Nikolai Kuleman and Morgan Rielly.

With the Maple Leafs leading 3-2 in the third period, Buffalo Sabres’ Cody Hodgson tied the game with a backhand shot on Leafs goaltender James Reimer.

No goals were scored in overtime, forcing the teams to scrap it out in a shoot out. Matt Moulson earned a point for the Sabres, however, it was not enough for the team to gain a win.

Unfortunately for the Buffalo Sabres, they were defeated, once again.
