In a rare win at home, Toronto bumped Buffalo 4-3 Saturday night handing the Sabres a serious post-season blow. Late Marlies call-up Ben Scrivens made 29 saves in the Leaf victory. Scrivens won 2 of 7 starts back in November for the Leafs and with 21 AHL wins is a major factor in the Marlies push to the postseason. Phil Kessel scored his career high 37th goal in a game that finally ended the Leafs’ 54 day drought on home ice, the longest in franchise history. The loss puts severe strain on Buffalo who is battling Washington for final spot in the East. The Sabres are two points behind the Capitals.
