No Comeback This Time; Sabres Fall To Leafs 4-1


‘Special teams actually turned out to be the Sabres’ undoing against the Leafs. Buffalo converted just one power play opportunity. The lone goal pulled Buffalo to within one and came just 31 seconds into the second period when Derek Roy fired a shot that went off Thomas Vanek, past Toskala, and into the net. Following the Vanek goal, his team-leading 32nd of the season, Buffalo enjoyed a number of two-man advantage chances — the longest of which was 1:17 — yet failed to score.’
