Preseason Sabres vs. Leafs Wrapup

You can tell this is the first game of the preseason.

The Sabres were worked pretty bad in their first preseason game of the season against the Leafs 7-4 in the Air Canada Center. Ryan Miller and Jhonas Enroth split the time in this game with Miller allowing three goals on 11 shots and Enroth allowing three goals on 13 shots. With many of the major forwards out for this game, the prospects took over in the scoring department. Zagarapan scored a power play goal 45 seconds into the game. Other scorers include Gogulla, Mancari, and Hecht. The defense also was showing off the prospects as well with only Spacek, Tallinder, Sekera, and Paetsch being the full timers playing in this game. Card and Weber rounded out the blue line.

The major fireworks of the game came from the fourth line of Peters/Hunter/Kaleta. Kaleta rounded himself into a fight with Ondrus while Peters managed a fight with Holloweg. Peters also then managed to get himself ejected from the game while arguing with the refs about a non-call.

Seeing as this is the first preseason game of the season the result is not as much of an issue. Allowing the Sabres to get their feet under them and a semblence of a flow to the game. This is also a time to allow the prospects to get some game experience and be able to experience putting on the jersey and suiting up for an NHL game.

Tonight they make the trek to Roberval, Quebec and play the Montreal Canadians. More on that game later. Here are the fights from the game thanks to hockeyfights.com
