BUFFALO, NY-- Is there a renewed rivalry between the Buffalo Sabres and Toronto Maple Leafs?
Sunday's brawl included one player coming off the bench and a goalie fight between Ryan Miller and Jonathan Bernier.
A scrap between Toronto's Jamie Devane and Buffalo's Corey Tropp raised the tension, and the melee began when Sabres tough guy John Scott tried to pick a fight with Toronto star forward Phil Kessel.
Sabres' goalie Ryan Millers says he's didn't expect Bernier to fight him. "I'm not a fighter. I'm not looking for a fight. He kind of brought it down the ice, so you can't really say no at a certain point," says Miller.
Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson is expected to receive a 10-game ban for leaving the bench and participating in the fight.
The brawl resulted in 30 penalties totaling 201 minutes.
