This week’s Hockey Happy Hour on NBCSN (5-7 p.m. ET) will feature memorable “on this date” games in playoff history.
With the series tied 2-2, Buffalo got off to a fast start in Game 5, scoring the opening three goals in the first period. Philadelphia responded with three goals of their own to tie the game, forcing an overtime period. Tyler Ennis of the Sabres ended the Flyers’ comeback efforts when he netted the overtime winner, and his second goal of the game, for the 4-3 Buffalo win. Nine years to the day, this victory marks the Sabres’ most recent playoff win.
John Forslund and Joe Micheletti called the matchup from Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, Pa.
During the broadcast, Mike Emrick reflects on significant hockey moments that have taken place on April 22 over the years.
