The Sabres will take to the ice downtown in black and red uniforms for the first time since the spring of 2006. As 90s Night will be full of nostalgia, let’s look back on some of the best moments of Buffalo’s black and red era.
These are presented in no particular order as ranking the best moments of that 10-year span would be awfully subjective. Feel free to share your favorite Goathead memories in the comments or on Twitter.
The nostalgia train is pulling into Buffalo tonight as the Sabres will take to the ice in their black and red alternate jerseys when they host the St. Louis Blues.
It’s been a long time coming as fans (and even some media) have been pining for the team to hop on board with a throwback alternate uniform for some time. Many other teams around the NHL picked up on the 90s nostalgia trip in recent years. None moreso than the Arizona Coyotes who re-adopted their kachina look for both their home and road uniforms. I hope the Sabres don’t go that far in embracing the red and black jerseys. This set makes for a perfect alternate. There’s no need to go further.
