It’s the most wonderful time of the year – playoff hockey has finally arrived! I may sound like a loser, but I live for this stuff. It controls my life and I have to schedule everything around it. (Just ask my mom, whose birthday is the night of Game 5. Sorry, mom!)
The Carolina Hurricanes managed to shut down the Detroit Red Wings last night 3-0 thanks to a phenomenal game by goaltender Cam Ward. That means the Sabres will have to earn a point tomorrow night against Philadelphia to force the Hurricanes out of the playoffs.
This week marks the 20th anniversary of the most incredible goaltending performance in modern hockey history. Ron Tugnutt,( yes that Ron Tugnutt) made 70 saves against the Boston Bruins on March 21, 1991.
Over the weekend, Terry Pegula continued to make good on his promise to honor the Buffalo Sabres tradition by bringing back Dominik Hasek. The Sabres responded with an 8-2 whipping of Atlanta. The Sabres have a history of Vezina winning goalies, from the tandem of Don Edwards and Bob Sauve to Tom Barasso, and today Ryan Miller. But none of them compare to Hasek. Enjoy this video from 1998 that features some of his greatest saves as a Sabre.
Already, I'm trying to figure out the signature call that Rick Jeanerette has planned for the newest Buffalo Sabre Brad Boyes. "Oh, Boyes", "The Boyes are back in town", "Who likes Boyes?". Alright, maybe not that last one.
