This Day in Sabres History :: May 25

Recommended Posts

May 25, 1971

In one of the great trades in team history, the Sabres send Joe Daley to Detroit for Don Luce and Mike Robitaille.

 

May 25, 1975

In Game 5 of the finals at the Spectrum, the Flyers beat Gerry Desjardins three times on nine shots in the first period and go on to defeat the Sabres 5-1 to take a three games to two lead in the series. Don Luce breaks Bernie Parent's shutout bid with six minutes left in the third period.

 

May 25, 1998

In Washington, with President Clinton watching, Matt Barnaby ties Game 2 of the Eastern Conference finals in the last minute of the third period, but the Capitals win 3-2 in overtime on Todd Krygier's goal at 3:01. The NHL later admits the goal came moments after what should have been a whistle for icing on the Capitals. Peter Bondra scores on another disputed goal in the second period to tie the game at 1, with replays clearing showing the scorer's skate was in the crease. Referee Kerry Fraser, however, does not ask for a video review. Later, Fraser jumps a few more spots on the Buffalo Sports #%^$#! List when he calls Hasek for unsportsmanlike conduct for throwing his blocker at the ref after there is no call on Bondra for running Hasek.

 

May 25, 1999

The Leafs tie the Eastern Conference finals at one game apiece with a 6-3 win over the Sabres in Toronto. Dwayne Roloson is in goal again for the ailing Dominik Hasek. And that's all there is to say about that. We're not going to waste any more time talking about a Leafs' victory.

Man, aside from 1971, May 25th really has sucked for the Sabres! Tell the team to spend the rest of the day in a padded room. :lol:

Replay also showed that the puck was struck with a stick above the crossbar, and that stick would be Bondra's.

 

Fraser being a dink resulted in the 1st of 3 consecutive annual rule changes brought about directly because of the Sabres getting hosed. In '98, it was the VGJ can initiate a review if the ref is a pompous moron and refuses to call for a review even though every single person watching the game knows the REF BLEW THE CALL. (Not that I'm bitter about it or anything.)

Anyone who went to St. Francis back in 98 (PTS, Orange Seats...) should remember that a day or two later Krygier visited the school and had a little Q&A type deal with all the students. I wanted to ask him if he could explain the offside rule, but I never got the chance. :(
