The game didn't end the way the Leafs would have liked, but the effort was there.
I'm writing this FTB a bit early, so forgive me if I'm missing your recaps, but if you came here just looking for a bit of info, check out the recap over at CBC, or the box score from the NHL. If you're too lazy to read those things, then here is the skinny:
Leafs out-shoot Sabres 35-20. Ryan Miller is good. Not a bad showing for the Leafs at all.
And that's about all you need to know.
Anyhow, on to the links.
