The Buffalo Sabres will be wearing the team's retro-third jersey against the Philadelphia Flyers tonight. This will be the second of 15 games where the team will sport the third jersey.
The Sabres first wore the original Blue and Gold in the 1970-1971 season and continued that way for the following 26 years. The first major change to the team's look came in 1996-97 when the team changed its basic colors to red, black and white to coincide with the opening of the HSBC Arena (formerly Marine Midland Arena).
Following is a schedule of the 15 games Buffalo will wear their new third jersey this season:
