Leafs top Sabres in SO
Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - Joffrey Lupul was credited with the game- winner after all three Toronto shooters scored in the shootout to lift the Maple Leafs to a 4-3 win over the Buffalo Sabres on Wednesday at Air Canada Centre.
James van Riemsdyk opened the shootout with a wrister past Ryan Miller, but Matt Moulson answered at the other end to even the score.
Lupul then lifted a shot high over Miller's glove from between the circles and after Buffalo's Cody Hodgson came up empty, Tyler Bozak lit the lamp to send the Leafs to their third straight win.
Nikolai Kulemin, Morgan Rielly and Phil Kessel each scored once in regulation for the Leafs, who saw James Reimer record 27 saves in the victory.
Hodgson, Moulson and Matt Ellis scored a goal apiece for Buffalo, which has lost two straight and five of its last seven games.
Miller made 36 saves in defeat.
