What more can we say? No discipline, no shots on net, no show in the third period, no goals.
The Buffalo Sabres were, to say the least, embarrassed by the Toronto Maple Leafs on Tuesday night at the Air Canada Centre. The Sabres amounted for a team record (in the bad way) of 10 shots on goal as Buffalo was shutout once again 4-0.
With the shutout, the Sabres have been shutout four times in ten games played. The Sabres fall to 2-8 on the year, and have now been outscored by 22 goals.
Michal Neuvirth was the story for the Sabres in the first two periods stopping the first 28 shots faced in net. After Leafs forward Tyler Bozak scored with 50-seconds left in the second period, Neuvirth gave up three goals on nine shots faced to Phil Kessel, James van Riemsdyk, and Jake Gardiner. The Sabres have now surrendered 16 goals in the third period in ten games this season.
Buffalo took six penalties on the night, with one of the goals on a Leafs poweplay by Bozak. Buffalo’s powerplay continues to go the year without a goal as the Sabres finished the night 0-2 on the powerplay.
Tyler Myers led the Sabres with 22:55 of total ice-time in the game while registering three hits and a blocked shot. Torrey Mitchell led the Sabres with two shots on goal while he had two blocked shots and was 44-percent on face-offs.
The Sabres end their four-game road trip 1-3, and will now head home to play the Boston Bruins on Thursday night at the First Niagara Center. Opening face-off is scheduled for 7pm.
