Buffalo will not play the Maple Leafs until March 5th. They’ll face each other four times in the final few weeks of the season.

The final home game is scheduled for April 4th vs. Ottawa. Buffalo will hit the road for two more after that to take on the Lightning and Panthers, respectively.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
