It was a long, cold night on October 30, 2016, in Buffalo, New York.
The New York Islanders and Buffalo Sabres had a chance to clinch the second round of the NHL playoffs for the second straight year, but the teams couldn’t quite pull off the upset.
It was the first time in the franchise’s history that the team was unable to score a goal in regulation and overtime.
So it was all but inevitable that both teams would win their games that night.
The Sabres and Islanders were already on the brink of their first Stanley Cup in franchise history, so a win was a definite possibility.
But the Islanders had been looking for a win, and the Buffalo Sabres were looking for their third.
For the most part, they did their job well enough, but they were never going to pull it off.
This was a team with a ton of talent, but one that wasn’t always willing to make moves.
They had a tough schedule and didn’t have the players that they needed to win the games that mattered.
They were also just two of the teams with a lot of talented players, but none of them were particularly great.
Injuries were a factor, but there were also a few guys that were just not that good that could make an impact on the game.
As the season wore on, the Sabres got some better, and they finally got a win.
They took down the New York Rangers, but lost to the Pittsburgh Penguins in the Eastern Conference Final.
The Islanders got the win in overtime, and were able to advance to the second-round series.
In that series, they faced the Penguins in Game 6.
In the first period, the Isles scored three goals and took a 3-2 lead.
They then scored five unanswered goals, and it seemed like the series was over for the Islanders.
The Penguins would go on to win that series in six games.
The series was tied 1-1, and then it got a little ugly.
The Leafs and Sabres both went into overtime, but both teams scored five goals.
They ended up winning the game in regulation, but ultimately lost to Tampa Bay in the first round.
In Game 7, it looked like the Isles were going to have a huge edge, but it all ended in a 1-0 Leafs loss.
The next night, the Islanders faced the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 8.
In a game that had been tied 1, 2, 3, and 4 at one point, the Maple Leafs scored five more goals and scored twice in the final minute of the third period to pull out a 2-1 win.
That was enough to force a series rematch.
In this series, the Leafs were going into overtime against the Rangers.
In overtime, the Rangers scored three unanswered goals.
The Isles scored five in the second period, and had the advantage heading into the third.
In regulation, the game was tied at 2-2, but in overtime the Isles had the lead, 3-1.
In extra time, it was 2-3.
With just over a minute to go, the Penguins tied the game, but got the goal that would get them out of it.
The Rangers scored four in the third to take the game into extra time.
The team that was tied with the Isles would advance to face the Bruins in Game 10.
It looked like this was going to be the game where the Islanders would finally get their first win of the season.
In fact, the first goal of the game came off the stick of John Tavares.
The goal came off a rebound, and Tavares found himself in front of the Islanders net.
Tavares got a rebound on the left side of the net, and turned to make a quick pass to his teammate, Evgeni Malkin.
Malkin fired a pass to Tavares who beat Lundqvist to the puck and beat the glove of Tavares in the back of the goalie’s net.
The puck went to the back door of the Isles net, where the Isles defenseman was able to get to it.
It seemed like it was going all the way to the net and the Islanders were going all-in on the goal.
It wasn’t until the next shift that the Islanders decided to go back to the drawing board.
The first Islanders goal came from a fantastic feed from Tyler Bozak.
The forwards fed, and Bozaks fed, which led to a rebound and the puck going back to him.
It didn’t take long for the puck to come back to Bozakin, and he scored the puck.
The play was quick, and when the puck came back to Tavards it looked as if the puck was going in.
Tavards was able, and in fact scored the game-winning goal.
What’s remarkable about the Islanders success was that the guys who scored on that goal were the guys that the Isles needed to get their win.
The second Islanders goal was a beautiful one.
With 4:03 left in regulation time, the two teams
