Those were some really fun games to watch. I remember a 1996 game against Pittsburgh, where Buffalo went up 3-0, then Pittsburgh came back to tie, and then Buffalo went back up and won 6-3. LaFontaine had a pair of goals, and it was a physical game. At one point Buffalo had 3-4 players in the box, if I remember correctly, and Peca was all over the place, playing really physical.
