The fifth and final meeting of the season between the Leafs and Sabres comes on the second half of a back-to-back for both teams. The Leafs held on to a nervous 4-3 regulation win over the Boston Bruins, while the Buffalo Sabres were on the opposite end of a 4-3 heartbreaking loss to the Philadelphia Flyers.

Tonight is the rubber match as both teams have won two games apiece in the season series. The last two games have gone into extra time and the first two games were each decided by two goals. The Leafs are fighting to stay in the playoff race while the Sabres are playing for pride against a geographical rival.
