Joseph E. Gambacorta founder of the Buffalo Hockey Museum and Experience has sent over these photos he took prior to the start of the last game at the AUD. He arrived 4 hours prior to the puck dropping and recorded the AUD in it's last "gettin' ready for a game" mode.
This, of course, was that last night in 1996 when Michael Peca scored the last game goal at the AUD & Pat Lafontaine put in a ceremonial goal after the 4-1 win over the Whalers.
If you have some photos from the last night in the AUD you can post them here (please do).
