Leafs Drop Sabres In Fight-Filled Game

Leafs_Team_2013The Maple Leafs and David Clarkson in particular will pay a high price for their high-spirited Band of Brothers moment Sunday at the ACC.

The battle to win spots in the lineup for the Leafs and Buffalo Sabres a 5-3 Toronto win was trumped by a re-staging of the War of 1812 complete with grappling goalies. Clarkson got the worst of it facing an automatic 10-game suspension for leaving the bench to save star Phil Kessel about to be torn like a chicken wing by super-sized Sabre John Scott.

That touched off a series of bouts that culminated with goalies Jonathan Bernier and Sabres all-star Ryan Miller in a lively punch-up won by the Leaf.
