2022 Tim Hortons NHL Heritage Classic Sabres vs. Maple Leafs (03-13-2022)

For fans of the Sabres and Maple Leafs, this season has been a case of “here we go again.” Hapless Buffalo has been out of the playoff race for several months. Once upon a time, Sabres fans thought that owner Terry Pegula would be the savior that would deliver Lord Stanley to Buffalo. A decade later, it has been nothing but misery with the NHL betting odds. Meanwhile, the Toronto Maple Leafs have a lot of skill. What they lack is sandpaper, reliable defense, and sustainable goaltending. Toronto’s 55-year misery looks likely to continue.
