BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — Frederik Andersen made 42 saves on a season-high 43 shots from the Buffalo Sabres to give the Toronto Maple Leafs a 2-1 win Thursday night at KeyBank Center.
Andersen robbed a handful of Sabres forwards on grade-A chances, including a pad save on Zemgus Girgensons, a diving glove stop on Marcus Foligno and multiple stops on Tyler Ennis. All close to the crease, all with the net seemingly open until it suddenly wasn’t.
Mitch Marner scored twice for the Maple Leafs; the first on a cross-crease pass from Tyler Bozak and the second on a turnover from Marcus Foligno, who scored the lone goal for Buffalo minutes after Marner’s second tally made it 2-0 Leafs.
Ryan O’Reilly led the Sabres with seven shots on goal, followed by Matt Moulson’s five. Robin Lehner made 27 saves on 29 shots for Buffalo. The Sabres drop to 4-4-2 on the season and head to Ottawa on Saturday night.
