Game Day: Buffalo

Despite the fact that they have lost 6 of their last 7 and are battling some key injuries don't expect this to be an easy game for Toronto.

No matter what the standings in any year the Sabres always bring their A game when the Leafs come to town and this year Buffalo has a better team than it has had in some time.

How hard has it been for the Leafs to win in Buffalo? Well they are 20-43-6 lifetime in Buffalo. That's a puny .333 winning percentage. Worse still since the Sabres abandoned the Aud and moved to the HSBC arena the Leafs are 4-11-3 (ouch).

Word is that Aki Berg will return to the line up as Carlo Colaiacovo has been sent down to the Marlies (although others speculate that this is a cap move). With the return of Berg the Leafs are completely healthy for the first time this season.

Belfour might start tonight and tomorrow in Montreal although a struggling Mikael Tellqvist certainly could use a chance to recover from the poor outing he had Sunday in Washington.

If he does get the not tonight it could be a long one for Leafs fans.
