The Dallas Stars just couldn't let a '99 reference go unpunished, could they?

Sabres fans were just getting over another anniversary of Brett Hull’s infamous Stanley Cup-winning goal this week when the Dallas Stars Twitter account just had to bring it up again.

The goal, scored with a foot in the crease on June 19, 1999 (or, technically, about 1:30 a.m. on June 20), gave the Stars the Cup in downtown Buffalo. The Sabres haven’t been back to a Stanley Cup Final since.

So when the Sabres tweeted this…

…the Stars just had to stick their nose in there.

The Stars didn’t say “HEY REMEMBER THAT TIME WE BEAT YOU?" All they had to do was offer a little correction (basketball has the “NBA Finals,” hockey has the “Stanley Cup Final” … it’s stupid) and twist the knife just a little bit deeper.

Shout-out to Christian for saying what the rest of us were thinking.

At least we’ll always have Don Cherry ripping Hull on the NBC set in 2007.
