Based in the First Niagara Center, the Sabres continue to race towards the Stanley Cup, which is always so tantalizingly close. With such a dedicated fanbase, it is important to book Sabres parking in advance, or else finding First Niagara Center parking may be difficult. The First Niagara Center opened to the public in September 1996.
The Buffalo Sabres are a team that thrives as the underdog. Despite never winning the Stanley Cup, they have come very close on several occasions. The team joined the NHL as an expansion franchise in 1970, and soon after formed the famous â€œFrench Connectionâ€ forward line, composed of French-Canadian players Rick Martin, Rene Robert and Gilbert Perreault. In its third year (1972-â€™73), the team made the playoffs with the help of the French Connection.
Despite falling short of a Stanley Cup, such a deep playoff run in only the teamâ€™s third season was an impressive feat. This wasnâ€™t all, as the Sabres managed to get to the finals in 1975, but lost to the Flyers in six games. The team won the conference championship in 1979-â€™80 and the division in 1980-â€™81. The Sabres didnâ€™t go much farther until 1996-â€™97, when they won the division title after moving to their new stadium. The Sabres faced the Dallas Stars for the Cup in 1999, but lost.
The team was bought by the Rigas family in 1998, but they were deposed in 2002 following alleged financial wrongdoing at Adelphia Communications. Things didnâ€™t improve for the Sabres until after the 2004-â€™05 NHL Lockout, when they won the 2006-â€™07 Division Championship, but fell short to Carolina for a trip to the Stanley Cup Finals.
