Ten more “Sabres Classics” – this time playoff games from 1999, including three Stanley Cup final contests – will be rebroadcast on MSG over the next two weeks.
Before falling to the Dallas Stars in the final, the Dominik Hasek-led Sabres roared through the Eastern Conference, needing only 15 games to reach the final.
The games are being aired because the COVID-19 pandemic forced the NHL to suspend its season indefinitely March 12.
The contests will start at 8 p.m.

Brett Hull’s goal in the third overtime secured a 2-1 victory in Game 6 and the Stars’ first Cup in franchise history on June 19, 1999 in Buffalo. Hull’s foot, of course, was in the crease when he scored, which should’ve negated the goal.
