BUFFALO, N.Y. - Christian Ehrhoff scored his second goal of the pre-season, and the Buffalo Sabres held on for a 3-2 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).

Mikhail Grabovski scored a pair of rebound goals for the Leafs, and Matt Frattin added two assists, but it wasn't enough for Toronto (2-3).

Stafford gave the Sabres a 1-0 lead 6:19 in with his first goal of the pre-season. Grabovski tied it at 13:27, but Ehrhoff put Buffalo back in front with a shot from the right point at 12:55 of the second. Ehrhoff leads Buffalo with four points.

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.
