April 27, 1980: Sabres ride goalies Edwards and Sauve to the playoffs

Thirty-five years ago this week, the Buffalo Sabres were riding two goalies through the NHL playoffs.

News hockey writer Dick Johnston looks at how the differences between Don Edwards and Bob Sauve made them a string team.

"Sabre Goalies: Two of a kind"

"Talk to any member of the Buffalo Sabres and he will tell you one of the big pluses for his team in the Stanley Cup hockey playoffs is the goaltending.

"Any club in the National Hockey League would be glad to have the goaltending pair of Don Edwards and Bob Sauve. Not only because they are the Vezina Trophy winners -- best goals-against average in the league -- but because of the way they get along together, and with the team."
