What happens when the Maple Leafs and Sabres get together? The fans get really, really drunk on Blue and hope to see some fights. So imagine how geeked they were last night in Buffalo when it was Frazer McLaren vs John Scott & Colton Orr vs Patrick Kaleta.
You want NHL tough guys? Here you go. Orr now has 1,024 PIM in his NHL career. Kaleta has 485.
As for the game, the Sabres picked up a win, 5-4, just their sixth home win of the year. Toronto leaves town with the NHL PIM lead with 504 (34 majors). Buffalo is 3rd with 454.

Hockey fights are very common, but what is not are the significant events that took place in Buffalo on Thursday night.
Colton Orr, who has a total of 1,026 penalty minutes in his 11-year career, recorded 29 minutes in just two seconds of playing time on Thursday. The Maple Leafs’ right winger not only served two minutes for cross-checking Buffalo’s Patrick Kaleta, but he also...
As the NHL trade deadline looms for this lockout-shortened season, one Buffalo Sabres fan fed up with his favorite team's performance this year decided to make a YouTube clip to show off his frustration.
The video parodies those "fire sale" videos for commercial businesses getting closed down and kudos to the creators for this one:

Nothing like a good hockey game in between a fight.
That's basically what happened Thursday night when the Buffalo Sabres got a hard-fought 5-4 Shootout win over the Toronto Maple Leafs.
And we say hard fought, we mean HARD fought.
The highlight of the evening to many: A Fight/Dance featuring a fight between Buffalo's John Scott and Toronto's Frazer McLaren...
What’s wrong with the Toronto Maple Leafs?
Since jumping out to a hot start this season, the Leafs have fallen back to the pack and currently sit sixth in the Eastern Conference — just three points ahead of the ninth-place New York Rangers. But what’s to blame? The Instigators all seem to agree that the goaltending has been solid, but Dale Arnold thinks the team is missing...
TORONTO (AP) -- Nazem Kadri had three assists and Joffrey Lupul added a goal and an assist as the Toronto Maple Leafs snapped a five-game winless skid with a 4-2 victory over the Tampa Bay Lightning on Wednesday night.
Dion Phaneuf, Tyler Bozak and Nikolai Kulemin also scored for Toronto. Kadri's three points tied a career high, and he had a chance at a fourth point but was...

Buffalo Sabres: It's hard to nail down exactly what players GM Darcy Regier would be willing to deal before the deadline, but chances are he'll listen on just about anybody. If teams are looking for defensemen, they can inquire about Robyn Regehr and Jordan Leopold -- both have expiring contracts. Regier recently floated the possibility that...
After Jhonas Enroth and Steve Ott led Buffalo to a 3-2 overtime win against Montreal on Tuesday, the Sabres will face another division foe tonight at the First Niagara Center. The Maple Leafs are fresh off of a 4-2 victory over the Lightning on Wednesday night, a game in which team-leading scorer Nazem Kadri contributed three assists.
Tonight, the two teams will close out the...
I asked you earlier if Buffalo could make it two straight, and I received pretty much all negative responses.
It took 65 minutes and a six round shootout, but the Sabres came a way with a 5-4 victory over Toronto on Thursday night at the First Niagara Center.
Steve Ott was once again a huge factor for Buffalo, netting the game-winner in the shootout. Ryan Miller extended the...
The Sabres’ season has been nothing short of a disaster, but how will GM Darcy Regier address the defensive problems in this years Draft?
For the Buffalo Sabres, this season has been nothing short of a disaster! First, they trade star center Derek Roy to Dallas for gritty winger Steve Ott and defenceman Adam Pardy, then after a dismal start, they fire head coach Lindy Ruff who...
This is an illegal hit to the head and a violation of rule 48. Toronto Maple Leafs forward Joffery Lupul is going to get a call from the Department of Player Safety and if he isn't suspended, I will be very surprised. Apparently, this isn't the first time that Victory Hedman has been hit with a questionable and dirty hit this week. Zac Rinaldo also caught Hedman with a very...
I apologize for my absence recently, I was on vacation in Florida and was unable to watch the games. But let’s talk about this game instead. The Toronto Maple Leafs defeated the Tampa Bay Lightning tonight by a score of 4-2 in Jake Gardiner’s first game since being recalled (finally) from the AHL yesterday. In the [...]
A Demostrable Sense of Killer Instinct
Dishing up an early lead to the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night, for a brief moment the Montreal Canadiens appeared like the deer in headlights that graced the Bell Center ice all of last season.
Having won five games in a row, the Habs were faced with the underwhelming task of gearing up for a Buffalo club that has been floudering against...
With teams such as Philadelphia, both team’s from New York, Montreal and Ottawa all in the hunt for the mammoth defenseman, Andrej Sustr has chosen to sign with the Tampa Bay Lightning, inking a two year entry level deal. Sustr, a 6’8″ defenseman, was widely considered one of the top free agent targets in college hockey this [...]
On Wednesday afternoon I opened my mailbox to find a familiar sight, one that I've come to expect every spring for the last six years. But never has it left me more incredulous.
"An invoice for Sabres playoff tickets? What kind of sick joke is this?"
My favorite part was this excerpt from the letter that accompanied the invoice: “With the NHL Playoffs...
Nazem Kadri scored in the first period, and Frazer McLaren added a timely goal in the third as the Toronto Maple Leafs ended an eight-game losing streak to the Bruins with a 3-2 victory on Saturday night.
The Bruins tried to rally from a 3-0 hole in the third period, throwing everything they had at Toronto in the final minutes. The teams will meet again on Monday in Boston.
