Recap: Toronto vs. Buffalo

Toronto, ON (SportsNetwork.com) - James van Riemsdyk scored twice as the Toronto Maple Leafs took a 4-2 win over the Buffalo Sabres in the back end of a home-and-home set on Saturday.

Mason Raymond posted a goal and an assist while Nikolai Kulemin also scored for the Maple Leafs, who snapped a three-game skid. James Reimer posted 33 saves in the victory.

Jamie McBain and Tyler Ennis scored for the Sabres, who had won their previous two games. Jhonas Enroth gave up all four goals on 22 shots.

Buffalo had taken a 3-1 decision in Buffalo on Friday.

The Maple Leafs got on the board at 5:45 of the first period as Cody Franson blasted a shot on net from the right point that was redirected into the net by van Riemsdyk, parked in front of the net.

It was a 2-0 game at 13:35 of the first period as the Leafs scored on the power play as Franson and van Riemsdyk again hooked up on a shot and redirect.

The only goal of the second period went to Toronto at the 11:49 mark. Kulemin banked the puck into the zone off the right boards in the neutral zone and Mason Raymond caught up to the puck. Dragging a pass back to the right circle, Raymond found Kulemin for a snap shot home and a 3-0 lead.

Buffalo made it a 3-1 game at 2:15 of the third as McBain's slap shot from the left circle on a broken play got past Reimer, and the Sabres cut their deficit to one four minutes later while on the power play as Matt Moulson sent a pass from the low left circle to the slot where Ennis one-timed the puck home.

"They probably didn't have the best first period, but had a lot of legs in the third," Reimer said. "You were kind of expecting that."

Raymond, though, scored on the power play with 1:04 to play to seal the win for Toronto.
