May Day

Its the Playoffs and its the beginning of May. And everytime I hear "May Day" I think of this goal. And how excited I was by it.

That probably is the best move Brad May ever but on anyone.

Yes it was a sweep of the Bruins. But the Sabres couldn't get out of Round 1 to save their lives during that era.

From 1983 to 1996 the Sabres only got past the 1st round of the playoffs once. That was the May Day goal. Since 1996, they have gone past the 1st round 6 times. And 5 of those of those 6 times have been during the Regier/Ruff era. The current state of management has been the most successful, since the 70's on the ice.

Yes, I know Hasek, was a main reason for the late 90's success. As is Ryan Miller now. But Darcy knows what he is doing. Players didn't pan out like he thought they would. That happens. They aren't in a huge cap issue. And tweeks can be made to made to improve the roster.

But as the playoffs move on, I can just remember the old series and remember how fun they were. And if the Sabres make the playoffs next year, that fun and excitement will be back.
