The Buffalo Sabers step back in time on Wednesday for 90s Party presented by The BFLO Store.
The team will face the St. Louis Blues for the first time at KeyBank Center in their new black and red third jerseys. The face-to-face is scheduled for 7 p.m. Tickets are on sale now.
The Sabers will wear the new third jerseys for 12 home games this season.
The first 10,000 fans in attendance will receive red light-up BamBams courtesy of The BFLO Store and a fanny pack with the revamped “goathead” logo.
In the halls of the arena, fans will be able to take photos in front of the black and red balls of the 90s and the Sabres.
Music from the decade will be featured, and fans should be on the alert for more pop culture references throughout the night. Mayday Buffalo will be the house band for that night, playing 90s music all night long for the fans.
Some former students from the 90s and Nikki, the team dog, will also be present.
Fans are encouraged to be seated early so they don’t miss a special open video that will be shown in the arena before the puck drop.
Sabers fans also contribute to the Black and Red Fan Wall by submitting photos of themselves in black and red Sabers attire. Fans will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a BFLO Store prize pack, black and red third jersey or autographed items. The contest ends Wednesday at midnight.
For those unable to attend, pre-game coverage will begin at 6:30 p.m. on MSG. Dan Dunleavy and Rob Ray will have the call just after 7 a.m. on MSG and WGR 550.
The evening highlights a new partnership between the team and The BFLO Store, which becomes the official retailer of the Sabers. The Sabers store in KeyBank Center will offer items from the BFLO store for purchase.
“The BFLO Store is proud and honored to partner with the Buffalo Sabers organization,” said BFLO Store Owner Nathan Mroz. “We thought it was the perfect time to sign a deal with a team that we believe is ‘booming’. Now having the designation of ‘Official Retailer of the Buffalo Bills’ and now of the Sabers is extremely exciting for we.
“We look forward to rolling out exciting promotions with our partnership with the Sabers to continue to bring new and unique shopping opportunities and experiences to Western New York.”
