This Day in Sabres History :: June 17

Recommended Posts

June 17, 1999

At Reunion Arena in Dallas, the Stars win for the third time in four games since dropping Game 1, shutting out the Sabres 2-0 to take a three games to two lead in the lowest-scoring Stanley Cup finals since the 1940s. The Sabres outshoot the Stars for the first time in the series, 23-21, but Ed Belfour is unbeatable. At the other end, Dominik Hasek is beaten by a perfect roofed shot early in the second period by Darryl Sydor and a backhander late in the third by Pat Verbeek. To add injury to injury, Rhett Warrener is rag-dolled to the ice with six seconds to go in the game by Derian Hatcher and breaks his right ankle. Lindy Ruff and Ken Hitchock give each other mouth-to-mouth after the final horn, the portly Hitchcock giving Ruff a head fake like he is coming over the glass that separates the two and Ruff picking up a water bottle and threatening to bean Captain Kangaroo. "The heck with it," says Ruff after the game. Hitchcock also plays down the incident. "It was just two guys from Alberta saying hello."
