LaFontaine, from Mogily and Hawerchuck.

Time of the goal, 16:14.
How many Sabre fans could recite every goal in just that manner, emulating the no-frills baritone from the PA system? I sure could growing up. Ellis' was just one of so many wonderful, distinguishing characteristics of the Aud - right up there with the Earl of Bud, the strobe-light endboards, the fan-made banners hanging from the balconies, the acoustical baffles hanging from the roof....and so on.

Sad loss but vibrant memories...
