Even though he didn't register a point, Sabres first-round pick Dylan Cozens had a strong showing in a 3-0 loss to the Maple Leafs in their third preseason game. 

He had a couple solid scoring chances and ended with three shots on goal while Tage Thompson had four. 

The Sabres lineup was thin considering most of their big names like Jack Eichel, Rasmus Dahlin, Jeff Skinner, etc. did not play. 

Cozens was going against Leafs forwards like Auston Matthews and William Nylander. 

Andreas Thompson scored first for Toronto in the first period, then Matthews in the second while Matt Read scored again to make it a 3-0 Leafs shutout.  

The Sabres next host the Leafs in Buffalo on Saturday.
