THE STORYLINES

* How many goals will the Leafs score? In their past three home games against the Sabres, they have three goals, and in the past seven overall against Buffalo, just 10, going 1-5-1.

* The Leafs have to start establishing a presence on home ice. At the Air Canada Centre, they are 2-6-3, the worst home record in the NHL.

* Keep an eye on Leafs D Mike Komisarek, who will begin trying to leave behind the first phase of his Leafs career after missing eight games with a small tear in his quadriceps.

SABRES NOTES

The Sabres have won two in a row after a four-game winless streak. Oft-injured C Tim Connolly has 21 points in 23 games, putting him on pace for 75, which would be a career-high ... RW Patrick Kaleta will serve the second game of a two-game suspension for his hit on Philadelphia's Jared Ross on Thursday.

INJURIES

C Paul Gaustad (leg) is out indefinitely. D Craig Rivet (leg) is day to day.
