GAME DAY REPORT: MAPLE LEAFS @ SABRES | Leafs Hub
The first half of a home-and-home against the Buffalo Sabres starts this afternoon in Buffalo. New head coach Sheldon Keefe has opted to go with backup goaltender Michael Hutchinson in the first half of the games this weekend. Starting his backup in the first half of a back-to-back is something that former head coach, Mike Babcock, had never attempted in Toronto, and everybody seems confused as they weren't sure it was allowed. Either way, it seems that Keefe is going ahead with that plan. Let's hope it works out, as the players are excited to give "Hutch" their all. Lets hope they aren't too full of turkey to skate tonight as well.... Here is your lineup for the game..... Finally, some basic team stats to chew on..... Buffalo Sabres Record: 11-10-4 PP%: 18.8% (15th in NHL) PK%: 74.4%
