Buffalo enjoyed a 5-2 win on the road at the Florida Panthers last Sunday night, which broke their three-game losing streak. The Sabres’ goals came from Jeff Skinner, Zemgus Girgensons (two), Jack Eichel and Victor Olofsson, while Linus Ullmark made 43 stops.

The Sabres have played two more games prior to facing the Maple Leafs on Friday, they lost 5-2 on the road on Monday at the Tampa Bay Lightning, before they returned to home-ice to take on the Calgary Flames on Wednesday evening and suffered another defeat, this time by 3-2.

Maple Leafs Back on Track

The Toronto Maple Leafs recently opted to fire coach Mike Babcock after a six-game losing streak and are back on track with three straight wins since his dismissal.

They were instantly rewarded as his replacement Sheldon Keefe oversaw a 3-1 win on the road at the Arizona Coyotes on his NHL coaching debut and followed it up with a 5-3 win at the Colorado Avalanche on Saturday night.

The Toronto goals in Colorado came from Nicholas Shore, Auston Matthews, Tyson Barrie, Kasperi Kapanen and Zach Hyman, while Frederik Andersen made 34 stops.

The cherry on top was a 6-0 on the road thrashing of the Detroit Red Wings on Wednesday night.
