The Phoenix Coyotes were in Buffalo on Friday. Not far from the HSBC Arena workers have begun dismantling the old Buffalo Auditorium, preparing it for demolition.
The old Aud was the site where Wayne Gretzky broke Phil Esposito's single season goal scoring record. The Buffalo News caught up with Gretzky before the game and asked for his recollections of that night and the old building.
