Game #76, Sabres @ Maple Leafs: Fallen Leaves
A Sabres win in regulation puts the Maple Leafs 9 points below them in the standings with one game in hand and puts the Devils on death notice. Expect a big game from Ryan Miller, who takes personal delight in making Toronto and their fans miserable.
Tonight is about more than two points. It’s about preventing a three-game losing streak to their perennial punching bags. It’s about former players turned current opponents who talk incessantly about beating them. It’s about making sure their killer instinct continues to flourish. But in the end, those two points would go a long way to prolonging the Leafs’ recent stretch of lost and never found playoff berths.
