MSG to air Sabres' finale in Aud, followed by premiere of 'Rafters Club' sitdown

Sabres fans can once again say to the Aud, "Farewell, old friend."

The replay of classic games from Buffalo's history continues Monday on MSG with the April 1996 season finale against Hartford, which marked the last game in Memorial Auditorium. Pat LaFontaine ceremoniously turned out the lights with a final postgame goal, and he will provide commentary throughout the broadcast, which begins at 8 p.m.

Following the two-hour telecast will be the premiere of "Buffalo Sabres: Rafters Club Roundtable." Sabres broadcaster Brian Duff sat down last month with the four living players who have their numbers retired in the rafters: LaFontaine, Gilbert Perreault, Danny Gare and Rene Robert.
