Sabres-Flyers’ Final Minute

I am not a fan of the three point game; I don’t like that it rewards a team for inevitably losing the game and creates an unnecessary insane logjam in the standings. But now I have a whole new reason for hating it. Buffalo and Philly were 3-3 with just over a minute left last night. About 10 minutes earlier, Pittsburgh had beaten the Islanders to jump ahead of the Flyers for the Atlantic Division by a single point. Buffalo needed just one point in order to clinch a playoff spot.

Three Point Games
