Sabres vs. Penguin Big Comeback Game in 70's or 80's

Recommended Posts

Does anyone remember a game when the Sabres came back from I believe 5 goals down back in the days of #11? If I remember correctly Perreault, from behind the net chipped the puck over the back of the net and bounced it in off the goalie. I was hoping this might be one of the classic games on MSG but I guess not. I haven't been able to find it on the internet. Any help would be appreciated.

I remember a 7-6 victory over Boston where they came back from down 6-2 or something. I remember Mal Davis scoring a big goal.

10 March 1976.  Buffalo 7, Pittsburgh 6.

The Sabres used to have listings of greatest comebacks and greatest collapses in 1 game.  I remember another game being listed under "trailed by 5 or more goals and won" too.

Little snippet from a recent News story. I couldn't open it to see if there's more than this:

"The other was back on March 10, 1976 when the Sabres were down 6-2 to the Pittsburgh Penguins but scored five goals in the final 8:35 for a 7-6 win."
