There was no shortage of Buffalove at KeyBank Center on Saturday thanks to former Buffalo Sabres captain Michael Peca and thousands of fired up fans on 90s day. 

The Sabres introduced a host of former players from the 1990s before their 3-2 win against the Florida Panthers, including Peca, who stepped onto the ice wearing his old black, red, silver and white jersey before peeling it off to reveal a Buffalo Bills Tre'Davious White jersey and the crowd went nuts. 

White, an All-Pro cornerback who has a special connection to the Sabres with his "Tre White Goalie Academy," and the Bills were in Houston Saturday to play in the AFC Wild Card game. The Sabres got their game time moved up to 1 p.m. so fans could watch both without overlap. Both teams are owned by Terry and Kim Pegula. 

In addition to Peca's special moment with the Bills gear, former Sabres center Dave Hannan held a Dave Hawerchuk jersey during his introduction. Hawerchuk is undergoingtreatment for stomach cancer. 

After the game, Sabres players wore Bills hats to show their support and keep the spirit of #OneBuffalo going strong.
