Tonight’s classic game broadcast is a two-hour re-airing of the Sabres’ “May Day” game from the 1993 Stanley Cup Playoff series against the Boston Bruins. The game, in which Sabres forward Brad May scored the game-winning goal in overtime, clinched a series sweep of the Bruins and remains as a one of the most memorable wins in Sabres franchise history. The telecast will feature special commentary from former Sabres forward Pat LaFontaine, who played in the game and assisted May’s now-famous goal.

Immediately preceding tonight’s classic game, MSG will air “Buffalo Sabres: French Connection Statue Unveiling.” The one-hour program, which begins at 7 p.m., was recorded during the Oct. 12 ceremony honoring the famed Sabres forward line with a statue outside of First Niagara Center. It features the night’s full proceedings, including speeches and interviews with Gilbert Perreault, Rene Robert and Cory Martin, the son of the late Rick Martin, as well as Sabres owner Terry Pegula.

On Oct. 29, the classic game broadcast will take a look back at the Sabres’ marathon game against the New Jersey Devils on April 27, 1994 that spilled into four overtime periods. Dave Hannan buried the game-winning goal and helped the Sabres secure a 1-0 win to force a Game 7 in the conference quarterfinals series. Throughout the program, longtime Sabres broadcaster Rick Jeanneret will provide in-depth commentary detailing the game that remains the longest in Sabres’ franchise history.
