Key Takeaways: Leafs vs. Sabres - 9/30/2016

Holland buries one in front

TOR@BUF: Holland beats Kasdorf with a deflection

Peter Holland tips one in on the doorstep off a perfect pass from Frank Corrado to give the Maple Leafs a 2-1 lead

  • 00:49 •

Here are five takeaways from the Maple Leafs' 8-1 exhibition win over the Buffalo Sabres Friday at the KeyBank Center:

No goals Thursday for Leafs, but a different story Friday. The Leafs failed to score on the Sabres in regulation time, overtime or the shootout during Thursday's 1-0 loss to the Sabres in St. Catharines, Ont., but with a different lineup Friday in Buffalo, it was a different story almost immediately: Toronto opened the scoring on William Nylander's first goal of the pre-season at 4:39 of the opening frame, and although Sabres centre Derek Grant tied it up approximately five minutes later, the Buds got three straight goals - two of them from blueliner Matt Hunwick - before the first intermission and never looked back.

Sparks denies Nylander's break

BUF@TOR: Sparks stops a fast break by Nylander

Garret Sparks halts Alexander Nylander on a fast break down the right hand side, keeping the scoreless in the 1st

Here are five takeaways from the Maple Leafs' 1-0 exhibition shootout loss to the Buffalo Sabres Thursday at the Meridian Centre in St. Catharines, Ont.:

Sparks sharp to start. Goalie Garret Sparks got the call in net for the Leafs, and the 23-year-old made a number of excellent stops while turning aside all 11 Sabres shots he faced in the first period and all 17 shots he saw on the night. It was a nice showing from Sparks, who had an uneven NHL stint in 17 games with Toronto last year, but put in solid work at the American Hockey League level with the Marlies. If he can continue reading the play and anticipating correctly, Sparks can be a consistent contributor.

Lou Lamoriello - 9/22/16

Lou Lamoriello meets with media as Leafs open camp

Lou Lamoriello meets with members of the media as the Maple Leafs open training camp

  • 08:05 •

At the conclusion of last season, Maple Leafs head coach Mike Babcock told a media throng that, when the campaign began, the organization felt as if it had more on-ice opportunities available than players who were able to claim them. But a lot has changed in a year, and although Babcock wasn't on hand for the kickoff of training camp Thursday - his duties coaching Team Canada at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey take priority in the short-term - the sense from both Toronto's management team and Leafs players themselves is that competition for jobs and ice time will be especially fierce this time around.

Leafs Prospects set for Rookie Tournament

by Adam Proteau /

When Sheldon Keefe took the reins for the Maple Leafs as head coach at the organization's rookie tournament in London, Ont., last fall, he himself was a rookie - at least, in terms of working for the franchise. But he's back this year with a great deal of success under his belt - a record-setting season as bench boss of the American Hockey League's Toronto Marlies will do that for a head coach's resume - and Keefe sees things unfolding very similarly in London with a new crop of young talent.

"I think it will be very similar as it was to last year," Keefe told prior to the rookie tournament, which kicks off Friday night and extends through Sunday. "I don't think I need to adjust anything or deal with anything differently. There's a lot of different things in place within the organization to help players, and my job is to focus on their development, and lots of other people help keep the players focused on what they need to focus on.
