TORONTO -- Dominic Moore scored twice and Toronto won its first game under new coach Ron Wilson, beating Buffalo 7-4 in a preseason game Monday night.
Tickets to the exhibition opener were given away for free and there were a lot more Maple Leaf jerseys in the stands at Air Canada Centre than normal as a result.
After Zagrapan opened the scoring on a power play just 45 seconds in, the Maple Leafs found their stride and dominated much of the period. Moore tied it at 8:09 after a strong forecheck caused a Sabres turnover and the Leafs center beat Sabres goalie Ryan Miller over the shoulder.
Colaiacovo put the Leafs ahead for good at 18:51 when his shot found its way through a crowd and behind Miller.
Goaltender Curtis Joseph, who returned to the Maple Leafs as a free agent over the summer, played the first period and stopped four of the five shots he faced. Fans chanted his name before the game -- his first in a Maple Leafs jersey in more than six years.
