The Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs went through 29 shooters combined before Jay McClement scored in the bottom of the 15th round to give Toronto a 3-2 preseason win Saturday night at First Niagara Center.
The shootout was the longest in Sabres history, including both preseason and regular season games. According to Elias Sports Bureau, it tied the NHL regular-season record set on Nov. 26, 2005 by the New York Rangers and Washington Capitals. Preseason shootouts are not included in their records....
In the bottom of the 10th round, Paul Ranger attempted a trick shot that appeared to have him simultaneously shooting and kicking the puck. After the failed attempt, Enroth gave him a slap on the backside with his stick.
Initially, Enroth thought Ranger was trying to make him look bad, but cooled on that feeling by the time he stepped into the dressing room.
“I didn’t really like it. I felt like he was trying to embarrass me maybe, but it’s good to see, I guess, [a player] trying to be creative too. So when I think about it now, it’s fine,” Enroth said.
