The Buffalo Sabres got back in the win column on Saturday night in Toronto with a thrilling 6-4 victory over the Maple Leafs.

Alex Tuch scored the go-ahead goal and the insurance tally late in the third to help the Sabres improve to 6-6-0 on the season. JJ Peterka, Tage Thompson, Jeff Skinner, and Jordan Greenway also netted goals.


Ryan Johnson, who made his NHL debut, recorded his first career point with the helper on Skinner’s goal. Peterka (1+1) and Casey Mittelstadt (0+1) extended their individual point streaks to five and four games, respectively.

Devon Levi finished with 25 stops on 29 shots in his first game back from a lower-body injury.

Box Score

The Sabres will try to get over .500 for the first time this season when they take on the Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday night at PNC Arena.
