Same old Sabres fall to Leafs

(Continued)

Tonawanda News — "Maybe a little bit of both hard work by me and unfortunate luck on his part."

Phaneuf's one-timer with four seconds remaining on a power play at 1:15 of the second tied it. The goal was the 100th of Phaneuf's NHL career.

Buffalo's Steve Ott put a backhand past Scrivens at 7:08, but it was disallowed because of a goalie interference penalty on Kevin Porter.

Van Riemsdyk put Toronto ahead 2-1 at 18:04, converting a nifty 2-on-1 break with Phil Kessel as the Leafs outshot Buffalo 15-6.

"We didn't start very well. ... we got our skating game going in the second," Carlyle said. "And once we can get on that forecheck and continue to throw that puck in and come at teams in waves, we can be an effective team grinding teams down."

"That's what we felt the case was tonight because we didn't skate very well and were fortunate to get out of the first period with the score what it was."

Notes: NBA slam dunk champion Terrence Ross of the Toronto Raptors took in the game. ... Toronto wore its third sweater for the fourth of eight games this season. ... Toronto entered the game leading the NHL in hits (476) and fighting majors (20). ... The Sabres and Leafs will meet once more this season, March 21 in Buffalo. ... Rolston has been Rochester's head coach since the 2011-'12 season, having compiled a 63-44-17 record.
