Best/worst lists

By Mike Harrington » Monday, August 4, 2014

No. 1: Quebec Nordiques. Hated playoff rival of the 1980s. Who was despised more: Dale Hunter or coach Michel Bergeron? No. 2: Hartford Whalers. The team famous for playing in an arena in the center of a mall and for its always-in-your-ears ditty “Brass Bonanza.” No. 3: Minnesota North Stars. The long-demolished... Read More

No. 1: “Thank You, Sabres,” 1973. Spontaneous chant fills the Aud as final seconds tick off season-ending playoff loss to the Canadiens. No. 2: Through the boards, 1972. Jim Schoenfeld takes Wayne Cashman through the boards at the Aud’s zamboni entrance and fights him on the concrete as Sabres announce they... Read More

No. 1: May Day, 1993. Classic Brad May goal sweeps a series, instantly turns Rick Jeanneret into a Buffalo broadcast legend. No. 2: Gilbert Perreault’s 500th, 1986. He wanted to celebrate quietly but Mike Foligno would have none of it and lifted his captain on his shoulders. No. 3: The first OT winner, 1973. Rene... Read More

No. 1: No Goal, 1999 finals. Need we say more? No. 2: Game Six 1975 finals. The Cup got away with two goals in the third period. Flyers 2, Sabres 0. Has Jerry Korab checked Bob Kelly yet? No. 3: Game Seven, 2006 Eastern Conference final at Carolina. If only Jay McKee and maybe one other defenseman were... Read More

No. 1: 1975. A bat, the fog, a Rene Robert overtime goal wins the first Stanley Cup final game in the Aud. Sabres 5, Flyers 4. No. 2: 1976. To Russia with Love: Sabres 12, Soviet Wings 6 in worst international loss ever for a USSR team. No. 3: 1993. May Day. Classic goal sweeps series over Bruins, instantly turns... Read More

No. 1: Lindy Ruff. Most years, most wins, most famous for two words -- “No Goal.” No. 2: Floyd Smith. The franchise’s first captain coolly led the 1975 finalists. No. 3: Scott Bowman. He won a lot of games, but this was the only place he couldn’t climb the Stanley Cup hill. No. 4: Joe Crozier. The first... Read More

No. 1: Gilbert Perreault. No. 11 in your program, No. 1 in franchise history in the stats, in his impact on the game, in goals and points. First to have his number retired, first homegrown product to the Hall of Fame. No. 2: Dominik Hasek. The enigmatic Czech with the slinky for a spine almost singlehandedly got the... Read More
