The Buffalo Sabres and the Toronto Maple Leafs square off Friday night in the first of back-to-back games between the two regional rivals. The two clubs went into the back-to-back set as the leaders in fighting majors this season in the NHL. The top four teams in fighting majors in the NHL are in the East. Almost a quarter of the way through the season (the quarter point is reached Sunday), teams in the NHL have combined for 292 fights. That projects to 1,168 fighting majors over a full season.
