|TORONTO — Despite the distance between the teams in the standings Ryan Miller Jersey , the Toronto Maple Leafs know better than to take the Buffalo Sabres lightly.
The teams play Monday night at the Air Canada Centre, where the Sabres beat the Maple Leafs 3-2 on March 26.
The Sabres have won two of three games against the Maple Leafs this season, including a split of two games in Buffalo.
While the Maple Leafs are preparing for the playoffs, the Sabres are looking forward to next season.
“We’re just down the road from these guys so it’s always a fun game playing against these guys,” Toronto center Mitch Marner said after the loss to the Sabres. “They play like a team that’s in the postseason. They play a tight game. They’re playing pretty well recently and every game we’ve played them they’ve played us hard. We had a lot of chances we’ve just got to make sure we hit the net a little more.”
The Sabres are coming off a 7-4 win against the Nashville Predators on Saturday, while the Maple Leafs lost to the playoff-bound Winnipeg Jets on Saturday.
“I’m disappointed, you always want to win each and every night,” Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock said Saturday. “I know looking at the schedule in advance we were in tough. I thought our second period hurt us. When you don’t have quite as much juice Duncan Keith Jersey , you’re not quite as good.
“We made a couple of mistakes there not stopping in the D-zone on a couple of those plays and in the end, it ended up in our net. I didn’t think they generated a ton and I didn’t think we generated a ton. It was tight. In the end, they were better.”
The Maple Leafs lost defenseman Travis Dermott to a lower-body injury during the game against the Jets after he blocked a shot, and his status for Monday had not been determined.
The Sabres, meanwhile, also lost a defenseman during the game at Nashville.
Victor Antipin suffered a concussion, a broken nose, facial lacerations and dental injuries after being checked into the boards by the Predators’ Scott Hartnell. Antipin was released from the hospital and was able to travel with the team when it left Nashville. He is out indefinitely.
The Sabres scored three goals on the ensuing five-minute major. “We were able to make them pay a little bit Womens Alejandro Villanueva Jersey ,” said Sabres center Sam Reinhart, who had a hat trick.
“It’s never easy to see a teammate get injured,” said Sabres center Jack Eichel, who had a career-best five assists. “It was a good job by our team responding and putting it on the scoreboard where it counts.”
The five assists matched a club record.
“The guys rallied around Victor and made a point to come out, and that was the difference in the game,” Buffalo coach Phil Housley said.
The Sabres (25-41-12) have the lowest point total in the NHL with 62 and are 3-6-1 in their past 10 games. They are 14-17-7 on the road.
The Maple Leafs (47-25-7) have already set a club record for wins in a season. They are 7-3-0 in their past 10 games.
They plan to pick up their game Monday after a disappointing loss to the Jets.
“I think we can get through the neutral zone a bit better, I thought we turned some pucks over,” Maple Leafs defenseman Morgan Rielly said after the game Saturday. “In the D-zone I think we can just be tighter Clay Matthews Jersey , they got some good chances but like I said we had periods of the game where we played well.”
With the NHL playoffs coming around the corner, some of the professional hockey teams are working harder than ever in order to seize a postseason berth sooner than later. This excludes the handful of teams who have already clinched a playoff berth, so they can sit back and relax a little bit as there isn't so much pressure on the ice anymore.
As for the teams who have already been mathematically eliminated, like, say, the once-successful Chicago Blackhawks聽club who won in recent odd years of 2010, 2013 and 2015. Players who are members of such teams are probably really disappointed about the fact they wouldn't be playing in the Stanley Cup Playoffs, but their WAGs will probably help comfort them and alleviate their pain during these gloomy days. Not only are the majority of these lovely ladies attractive as heck Doug Flutie Jersey , they're likely successful in their own right, which is a plus because it's always nice when a man finds an independent woman who has her own job and can earn a similar or at least decent income compared to her wealthy partner or spouse.
There are also NHL legends who have gorgeous daughters. They may not聽approve of their daughters dating athletes, but each father has a different opinion on dating. Regardless of their parenting methods, they're just looking out for their kids to help them remain grounded.
Now let's take a look at the most anticipated part of this list: Eight聽young NHL players with pretty girlfriends and eight legends with gorgeous daughters.
