Carter Hutton stopped 41 of 43 shots on Saturday, but he wasn’t able to get all of John Tavares’ long-range shot with 3:15 remaining in overtime. That shot proved to be the winner in the Buffalo Sabres’ 2-1 loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs at Scotiabank Arena.
Rasmus Ristolainen tied the score midway through the third period as Buffalo was able to earn a point in the second game of the home-and-home series against Toronto.
Buffalo picked up three points on the weekend after beating the Maple Leafs 6-4 on Friday.
Jack Eichel extended his point streak to nine games with the primary assist on Ristolainen’s goal. He now has 16 points (8+8) during that stretch. Eichel has also totaled 20 points (12+8) in 15 career games against Toronto, including nine (5+4) in eight road games.
