The Buffalo Sabres went the extra mile to turn back the clock on Thursday.
While celebrating their 50th NHL season, the team went with their all white uniforms, including white gloves, but KeyBank Center got a much more colorful makeover.

Sabres staff draped yellow, red and blue T-shirts over each seat in order to make the arena look like old Memorial Auditorium, or, as it was more affectionatley known until its demolition in 2009, The Aud.
The result was pretty spectacular.
Sabres staff worked tirelessly pregame to get the look just right and the team shared a time-lapse video of the effort.
In a specially made video dedicated to The Aud's memory, Sabres alumni recalled their former home stadium, most nostalgically how the ice was smaller than every other team's in their division.
The Sabres alumni were, of course, on hand for the game and posed for a picture with KeyBank Center's new look.
Buffalo Bills running back Devin Singletary was also in attendance to show support with a Rasmus Dahlin jersey.
