TORONTO (AP) - Toronto goaltender Jonathan Bernier says an event like a big brawl can help bring a team together.

The Maple Leafs' rivalry with the Buffalo Sabres hit another level in Sunday's preseason game. The wild melee included one player coming off the bench and a rare goalie fight.

Bernier says that while the club doesn't want any of its players suspended to start the season, he's pleased that teammates stepped up for each other.

Maple Leafs forward David Clarkson is expected to receive a 10-game ban for leaving the bench.

Bernier even dropped gloves with Sabres goaltender Ryan Miller.

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.
