BUFFALO, N.Y. - Christian Ehrhoff scored his second goal of the preseason, and the Buffalo Sabres held on for a 3-2 preseason victory over the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night.

Ehrhoff, Drew Stafford and Luke Adam all scored power-play goals for the Sabres (4-0).

Adam beat diving goalie Jonas Gustavsson at 3:13 of the third after cross-ice passes from Thomas Vanek and Brad Boyes. Toronto got within 3-2 on Grabovski's second goal at 12:21.

Buffalo's Jhonas Enroth made 19 saves. Gustavsson stopped 34 shots.
