Adam Oates’ Playoff Game-Winner One Highlight in Heated Bruins-Sabres History (Video)


The rivalry between the Bruins and Sabres has been an intense one, with the two teams meeting in the postseason seven times over the past 30 years.

Perhaps the most memorable of those playoff meetings took place in 1992, when Bruins center Adam Oates scored off a faceoff in overtime to give Boston a 3-2 win in Game 2 of the division semifinals. Oates, who now serves as head coach of the Washington Capitals, showed remarkable reflexes on the play, as the puck hardly touched the ice before it was rocketed past Buffalo goalie Tom Draper.
