Sabres Kick Sens In The Groin


This is why the Stanley Cup playoffs rule!

Ottawa was up over Buffalo 5-4 late....verrrrrry Game 1 of their Conference Semifinal series.  With 1:47 remaining in the game, the Sabres Derek Roy scores a SHORTHANDED GOAL to tie the thing up.  Amazing.

Then, just 20 seconds later.....with the Sabres still a man down....the Senators Brian Smolinski fires one in for the go-ahead goal.  Sens now lead 6-5 with just 1:23 left.

Ah....but the game ain't over.  In a scrum in front of the net, Tim Connolly grabs a rebound and fires it for the game tying goal with 11 seconds send the game into overtime.

In overtime, just 18 seconds into overtime, Chris Drury gets a turnover in the Buffalo attacking zone and goes in for the game winning goal.  Each either tying the game or taking the lead. a span of 2:05 of game time....four goals were scored,
