TONIGHT, the Buffalo Sabres hope to secure their 4th win in a row, while the Leafs look to enter their back to back night's with a win in Buffalo.
The Leafs will have Jiri Tlusty replacing Viktor Stalberg on the top line, and the Sabres are riding Ryan Miller's coat tails as the American netminder leads the league in goals against average (1.60) and save percentage (0.944).
It's the Leafs and Sabres, Live, Right Here, only on TheScore!
Gustavsson gets the start tonight, Vesa Toskala starts tomorrow night against the Canadiens - another game we will be liveblogging for you all - and Phil Kessel is expected make his debut on Tuesday.
@Shawn: So a strong game, but the Sabres prevail in the end?
Nik Kulemin with 3 goals in his last 2 games, and Clarke MacArthur leads the Sabres in points with 7 in 9 games.
The Sabres scoring is certainly spread out once again since their dominant team in 2006.
Leafs have the best powerplay in the league, with the worst penalty kill. Sabres must watch out when killing penalties as the Leafs are on a hot streak with the man advantage, but the Leafs better hold their breath should the Sabres gain a powerplay of their own.
Buffalo averages 3.22 goals for per game, and 1.89 goals against. Toronto averages 2.40 goals per game, and 4.20 goals against, but have 9 goals in their last 2 games.
Getting set for the national anthems in just a few, puck drop is about 7 minutes away.

Stajan gets to center and flips it in deep. Sabres break out with it on the short side and down comes Kennedy. He spins off Komisarek and feeds it back, but the Leafs get it out and the Sabres are called for the offside.
Leafs win the draw, send it down the ice and that will be ruled icing.
Grabovski wins the draw, but the Sabres are on it.
A long shot is bouncing in front and the Leafs get it to center. Poni sends it in deep, Hagman i battling for it, but Roy gets possession and starts to skate it down. He hits center and feeds it in deep for the change. 18:20

Faceoff to the right of Gustavsson.

Exelby plays it around, Kulemin battling at the side boards, comes back to the D, Schenn is pressured but gets it out. 17:50

Off the draw the Leafs are called on the offside once again.
Schenn average just 10 minutes of ice-time in each of his last 3 games.
Sabres have it her, regrouping for the play, and Myers is on it. He turns back and looks to break out with it. 17:00
Miller plays it around now, and the Leafs are on it. A centering pass for Orr...
