The Buffalo Sabres are continuing on with showing some of their classic games in franchise history on Monday, April 6 as they will broadcast Games 1, 2, 5 and 6 of the 2006 Eastern Conference Quarterfinals against the Philadelphia Flyers on MSG.

Game 1 of the series saw the Sabres and Flyers head to double overtime at, then, HSBC Arena, where forward Daniel Briere played the hero with the game-winning goal in a 3-2 win. That game will be aired on Monday.

Tuesday will feature Game 2 of the series, where the Sabres came out with eight goals on the Flyers and chased goalie Robert Esche in the first period in an 8-2 win. That game also saw J.P. Dumont and Jason Pominville each netting a hat-trick to help put the Sabres up 2-0 in the series.

After a pair of close losses in Philadelphia in Games 3 and 4, the Sabres responded with a 3-0 shutout win over the Flyers in Game 5 to take the 3-2 series lead. Ryan Miller stopped all 24 shots that he faced in the contest to earn his first career playoff shutout. That game will air on Wednesday.

Finally on Thursday, the Sabres will air Game 6 of the series, where Buffalo earned a 7-1 win over the Flyers at the Wachovia Center in Philadelphia. Buffalo got two goals from Chris Drury and Mike Grier put up a four-point night, while Miller played well again with 21 saves on 22 shots faced.

On Friday, the Sabres will broadcast a "Beyond Blue and Gold" compilation on MSG, which will feature an hour-long showing the "Scary Good," "Return to Ground Zero" and "Wipper Snapper: Through the Lens of Bill Wippert" episodes.
