(SportsNetwork.com) - The Buffalo Sabres headed into the Christmas bre

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Buffalo Sabres headed into the Christmas break playing their best hockey of the season. It was pretty much the opposite for the Toronto Maple Leafs. Catch all the action on TSN and TSN Radio 1050 at 7:30pm et /4:30pm pt. The Sabres will shoot for a fourth win in five games when they visit the struggling Toronto Maple Leafs in Fridays Atlantic Division battle at Air Canada Centre. Toronto lost seven out of nine heading into the Christmas break, but the club at least has managed to earn points in three straight outings. The Maple Leafs have gone to the shootout phase in each of their last three games, beating Phoenix on Dec. 19 before losing consecutive tilts against Detroit and the New York Rangers. The Maple Leafs seemed on the verge of a regulation defeat Monday in New York City, but they came up with a controversial goal after Rangers forward Chris Kreider was sent off for shooting the puck over the glass with 3:34 remaining in the third period. New York goaltender Cam Talbot appeared to cover up David Clarksons chance in-close on the man advantage, but the whistle never blew and Nazem Kadri alertly pushed the puck over the line to make it a 1-1 game with only 84 seconds to go in regulation. However, Derek Stepan and Mats Zuccarello each scored for the Rangers during the shootout, while Joffrey Lupul scored Torontos lone goal in the decisive segment. Kadri had a chance to extend the shootout for Toronto, but was denied by Talbot. Toronto fell for the ninth time in its last 10 road games despite a terrific 42-save performance from Jonathan Bernier. "Our goaltender stood on his head," Maple Leafs head coach Randy Carlyle remarked. "Thats all you can ask in a game like this one." The Leafs are 12-8-1 as the home team this season compared to a 6-8-4 record on the road. Although Buffalo is still last in the NHL with 23 points, the club has recorded four of its 10 wins this season over the last seven games. The Sabres latest victory, Mondays 2-1 overtime win against visiting Phoenix, came with a little bit of luck, as Buffalo was the beneficiary of a bizarre play in the extra session. Mark Pysyk fired a shot from near the right circle 3:47 into the extra session which was initially stopped by Coyotes goalie Mike Smith, but the puck bounced straight up into the air and was batted down by a Phoenix defender and landed in the back of Smiths pants. Smith, unaware of the disc wedged in his pants, turned and slid backwards into the net carrying the puck across the goal line for the game-winner. "I saw it come down and figured it landed. I didnt know where it went from there, but I saw he was in the net and figured it was in," said Pysyk. Tyler Ennis scored the game-tying goal 14:01 into the final session for the Sabres. Ryan Miller made 36 saves in the win. Although Buffalo has picked up the pace recently, the club still enters Friday on an eight-game road losing streak. The Sabres, who last won as the guest on Nov. 5 in San Jose, are just 3-12-1 on the road this season. The Sabres have not fared well in Toronto recently either, losing two straight and seven of the last eight encounters at Air Canada Centre. Buffalo, however, has won three of the past four meetings overall. Buffalo hopes to have leading scorer Cody Hodgson back tonight after the centerman missed the last two games due to an upper-body injury. Hodgson has eight goals and 11 assists to pace the Sabres with 19 points. Nike Blazer Low Femme Blanche . Rob Manfred, baseballs chief operating officer, testified last week during the grievance filed by the players union to overturn Rodriguezs 211-game suspension. A person familiar with the hearing, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Associated Press on Saturday that Manfred testified the sport wasnt concerned whether Bosch distributed performance-enhancing drugs to minors because MLBs interest was his relationship with players under investigation.

Nike Blazer Pas Cher Noir . "Hes going to have hip surgery on Jan. 7, and hell be expected to rehabilitate for four to six months beyond that," Canucks general manager Mike Gillis said Friday in an interview. Nike Blazer Mid Femme Bordeaux . Manuel was offered a position the day he was fired. He accepted earlier this week and the team made the announcement Friday.Until further notice, the Heisman Watch is a three-horse race. With a fair number of bye weeks and unimpressive performances, it wasnt a pretty week for the top contenders of college footballs most prestigious individual award. There was however, one exception. The original leader in the Heisman Watch, Clemson QB Tajh Boyd, jumped back into the fray with a strong game against Wake Forest. In the third-ranked Tigers blowout win over the Demon Deacons, Boyd threw for more than 300 yards and three touchdowns, while adding 69 yards and a score on the ground. Boyd became just the second ACC quarterback to throw for 100 touchdowns in the win, and while the number signifies the great career the senior has had, his final year has him ranked as a favourite for the Heisman. Johnny Manziel continued his impressive Heisman-defence campaign in A&Ms win over Arkansas. The Aggies struggled early against their SEC rivals but eventually pulled away for a comfortable win with Manziel finishing with more than 300 combined yards and two touchdowns. The “third horse”, Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater, enjoyed a bye in Week 5. And now to the disappointing performances. Oregon QB Marcus Mariota was only average in the second-ranked Ducks crushing of Cal. Sure, the redshirt sophomore only needed to be average in Week 5, but a 114 yards passing and two touchdowns line He did account for three scores but his 114 yards through the air wasnt enough for him to join the elite level in Week 5. Alabama QB AJ McCarron had a second straight so-so effort in the Crimson Tides blanking of Ole Miss while Georgia RB Todd Gurley wasnt the difference maker in the Bulldogs win over LSU..dddddddddddd Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk and UCLA QB Brett Hundley were off in Week 5. And just when we almost forgot him, Ohio State QB Braxton Miller returned from injury with four touchdowns against the previously ranked Wisconsin Badgers. If the Heisman was a shared award, Miller and Kenny Guiton would be a lot higher on this list.
