Most Memorable Playoff Moments

Earlier this week, Sabres Hockey Central asked its fans “what was your most memorable Sabres playoff moment?” We received a number of responses, but we’re not going to list that many all at once.

We chose a select few, and will save the others for next week. We were planning on ranking them, but we’re going to leave that for you to decide.

These are just a few of many memorable moments. We will have another similar to this in the next week. Check out the videos below and then choose your top three favorites. Feel free to comment, or tell us another playoff memory that you had.

The first one is Chris Drury’s game tying goal with 7.7 seconds to go against the Rangers. The Sabres went on to win in overtime on Maxim Afinogenov’s game winner.

This next one was back in 1999, when the Sabres defeated the Leafs four games to one. It was a white out inside the Arena in Buffalo. Take a look at some of the highlights. (Submitted by Carrie Pecoraro):

Here’s the Jason Pominville overtime goal against Ottawa. The Sabres went on to win in five games. Sorry for the poor quality, but you know what happens. (Submitted by Katie Cimato):

Here is Daniel Briere’s overtime goal against Carolina to force a game seven. Even though the Sabres would lose next game, they certainly played their hearts out. (Submitted by Nick Richardson):

In the 2006 playoffs, Daniel Briere scored a goal in double overtime of game one to defeat the Flyers. (Submitted by Craig Mazuchowski):

In that same year, J.P. Dumont scored an overtime goal in game three against Ottawa, giving Buffalo a 3-0 lead in the series. (Submitted by Tony Lewis):

Now that you’ve seen them all, choose your favorites. You can select up to three, and next week we will let you know the results of the top chosen most memorable Sabres playoff moments.

Sorry, there are no polls available at the moment.

I founded Buffalo Hockey Central in 2008 and have poured hours and hours into this site. Luckily, we have a great team of writers and designers who have helped keep this up and running despite a ton of out-of-pocket costs. We do this because we enjoy it, and we're desperate to see the Sabres win the Cup someday, but they have to make the playoffs first.
