If you missed it last night, there was an epic brawl in the (preseason!) Leafs / Sabres game. It started when Sabres tough guy John Scott (6’8″, 270lbs) jumped Leafs scorer Phil Kessel (6’0″, 202lbs). The Leafs responded, including a goalie fight between Bernier and Miller.

All in all, the Leafs fared better in the brawl. They also won the game 5-3. The fights might cost the buds though, with David Clarkson expected to be suspended 10 games for leaving the bench during the fights. Phil Kessel might also get suspended a couple games for his stick-work.

In the regular season, the Toronto Maple Leafs and Buffalo Sabres play a back-to-back on November 15-16.
