GDT: 8pm. MSG-B Rangers at Sabres: Drury's "who else?" Goal (5/4/2007)

Recommended Posts

I remember watching this game plausibly live on the DVR, not finishing until 2:30 AM and weeping uncontrollably at the end.

Thanks again OSP!

A lot easier to stay out of the loop back then!

Only time I watched a game from a suite/box. Best part about it was that I knew most of the people around me and am shocked there were no serious injuries after Drury tied it up

This year’s Sabres team with Derek Roy in the 2C position would be solidly in a playoff position.

Not without a better goalie to play 30 or so games

Agree.

A Drury type would be needed too.

I disagree. Roy alone would put us in the playoffs.

Sabres fans deserve a REAL team like the 2005-06 and 2006-07 teams were.  So much talent. More importantly so much heart. Current teams severely lack both.

That Sabres team won the presidents trophy that year and led the league in scoring. Adding anyone to our current team wouldn’t be close to the 2006-07 team. Be real.

I didn't say they'd win the PT. I said with Roy, they would make the playoffs. They would, cuz he was really good.

You disagree. You're wrong.😀

Wtf is doing the editing of these broadcasts?

The 70 save game, they did what they could w/ a 2 hour time frame.  But ...

The last Aud game, they show the Booster Club Awards but not the skate around ceremony at the end.

Didn't agree with the editing of the 911 game, but understand with their choices.

Now, this 1, they skip the whole 1st period to show the post game show.  Again, wtf?

Sabres fans would like him a lot more in today's hockey than they did back then for sure. 

 

I was so upset with this game that in the final regulation commercial break I wrote an "L" on the playoff schedule on the fridge. My grandmother called (she does this for exciting sports events it's really fun) and found out and was furious with me, and never let me forget it once we tied the game

I only saw the game on Youtube, but all the post-game ceremony skate-around stuff was in a seperate video.

Why not show the games in their entirety? No live sports right now, so what else do they need to broadcast?

I wonder if there's some legal mumbo jumbo about not showing the games in their entirety.

Yea, no matter the game, they are editing it into a two hour block. There must be a money decision behind it. Maybe an NHL decision too. And lastly, maybe an MSG programming reason. 
I’m just happy they are showing anything Sabres at all. 🤷‍♂️

That makes more sense. I just hated to miss any chance to blame a lawyer.

If someone who does twitter and follows Biron and/or Duffer, maybe they can ask them why the two hour block and highly edited game. They probably know.

Or maybe someone already asked them that and they answered it.

It would be nice to get a definitive answer, just to know...

aren’t they only leaving out the intermissions? I like the two hour games.

I remember during this time that I didn’t have to get Center Ice because I worked until 11pm. I would come home and watch the 2 hour replay at midnight on Empire Sports Network. It was awesome.

No, they are editing parts of periods, and yesterday’s game they edited out the entire 1st period. No matter how long the game took in real time, they are editing it into two hour blocks.

 

Edit: the 4 OT game vs. the Devils with Hannans goal, was a three hour block I believe. But all others are two hours
