TORONTO, ONTARIO - (WKBW) The Buffalo Sabres showed the same fight in game two under Ted Nolan as they did in game one. But the end result was not the same. The Sabres fell to the Maple Leafs Saturday 4-2.
James van Riemsdyk deflected two shots past Jhonas Enroth in the first period to give the Leafs a 2-0 lead. His second goal came on the power play.
Nikolai Kulemin scored his first goal of the season in the second period to put Toronto up three goals through 40 minutes.
After Jamie McBain and Tyler Ennis (power play) scored to pull the Sabres within a goal in the third period, Mason Raymond tallied to cap the scoring.
The Sabres next host the St. Louis Blues on Tuesday.
