The Buffalo Sabres have already had an excellent road trip -- going 4-1-1 away from home is a nice showing by anyone. But with little room for error as they chase a playoff berth, the Sabres will try to cap their seven-game trip with a win in Toronto on Saturday.
The Leafs need the game every bit as much -- they enter the night six points behind Buffalo and the New York Rangers, who own the last two playoff berths in the Eastern Conference.
The 7 p.m. ET start, one of 10 games on Saturday's schedule, can be seen on the NHL Network in the United States and on CBC's Hockey Night in Canada.
