The Toronto Maple Leafs were completely overwhelmed by the Sabres, losing 9-3 in Buffalo. The team struggled all night long, leaving fans with little to cheer about.

In his post-game media availability, Auston Matthews didn't mince words about the Leafs' performance:


"Embarrassing is probably the right word to use from start to finish, top to bottom, not nearly good enough. Just a bad hockey game from our team. Collectively, probably one of the worst games since I have been here. It's hard to pinpoint one thing. I think it was all just disappointing."
