Leafs take 1-0 lead over Sabres in the 2nd period

September 22, 2017

The Sabres are in Toronto for the 1st of a home and home with the Leafs. The game is being played at Ricoh Colisieum, the home of the AHL's Toronto Marlies. On Saturday the Sabres host the Leafs at Key Bank Center. 

The first half of the first period was all Leafs. Shots were 10-2 in favor of Toronto at the 2 minute mark. Linus Ullmark looked strong turning away all shots to keep the game scoreless. 

Buffalo got their first real opportunity at the 8-minute mark with a powerplay. Despite some good pressure, the Sabres couldn't capitalize. Auston Matthews got a breakaway coming out of the box, but missed the net on the blocker side. 

Much of the period was uneventful for the Sabres, however Linus Ullmark certaintly looked sharp. 

Early in the 2nd, Morgan Reilly broke the scoring with a powerplay goal. Reilly was one of many of Toronto's stars to play in this game.
