with the 2013-2014 season.

On Sunday November 24th – the Buffalo Sabres will wear their new gold and blue third jersey for the first time against the Detroit Red Wings.

That is the first of what will be ten appearances for the sweater this year that has gotten more bad press since it was “revealed” by Steve Ott who used social media to show fans because he was tired of the Sabres taking their time with the reveal.

Below is the schedule of games that the Buffalo Sabres will wear their new sweaters – and Detroit, the Montreal Canadiens, and New Jersey Devils get the honor of seeing the sweaters twice this year while the Pittsburgh Peguins, Philadelphia Flyers, and Calgary Flames are the other opponents that get to witness the jersey live this year.

Nov. 24       vs. Detroit Red Wings
Nov. 27       vs. Montreal Canadiens
Dec. 5         vs. New York Rangers
Dec. 14       vs. Calgary Flames
Jan. 4          vs. New Jersey Devils
Jan. 14        vs. Philadelphia Flyers
Feb. 5         vs. Pittsburgh Penguins
March 16     vs. Montreal Canadiens
April 1         vs. New Jersey Devils
April 8         vs. Detroit Red Wings

For those fans that want to add the sweater to their collection because they like it or merely to add to the roster of jerseys in their closet – the sweaters will be on sale in the Sabres store starting with the game on Sunday after the team dons them for a game first.

    FINALLY!!!! They look horrible but a new look is always welcome. Makes it feel like a fresh start type of thing. Now we can keep track of how well we play in the new digs compared to our main ones.
