By John Vogl

The Sabres' wild run-ins with the Leafs have come to an end.

The rivalry between the Sabres and Maple Leafs has been filled with crazy moments this season. Buffalo and Toronto have hurled insults and beer cans. There have been brawls and broken jaws.

The finale Wednesday featured one more anomaly. Ryan Miller stumbled in the breakaway challenge. The story is here.

It was a pretty big night for 6-foot-8 Buffalo defenseman Tyler Myers as he made immediate impact upon his return from a three-game suspension. The story is here.
