This Day In Sabres History:

April 9, 2000
The Sabres sweat out a 1-1 tie in Washington to secure a playoff berth on the final day of the regular season. Stu Barnes breaks a scoreless tie in the third period, roofing one over Olaf Kolzig, but the Capitals tie it after Richard Zednik takes the puck from rookie Maxim Afinogenov and beats Dominik Hasek on a long, fluky shot. The stars of the day are the Buffalo defense, which allows Washington just 14 shots on goal in regulation, and a piece of gum that Lindy Ruff says he “beat the crap out of” during the tense affair.
