Sabres Rally To Beat Leafs
The Sabres rallied back to beat the Toronto Maple Leafs 6 to 5 in overtime last night, but it’s not likely the way they drew it up. When the Maple Leafs made it 5 to 3 with just over 9 minutes left to play, there were some fans that started to trickle out of the building, but they missed an exciting comeback.

So the Sabres are back into a tie with the Washington Capitals with two games left. It’s on to Philadelphia tomorrow night.
