Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Sabres vs Maple Leafs

Rival Team: Toronto Maple Leafs

The close proximity of Buffalo and Toronto make a Sabres-Leafs game a must see event. Fans of both teams fill the arena creating a great atmosphere. Flames were added to the rivalry recently when the Leafs beat out the Sabres in signing head coach Mike Babcock further intensifying things.

Sabres vs Bruins

Rival Team: Boston Bruins

The Sabres-Bruins rivalry dates back to 1970 when Buffalo entered the league and has been going strong ever since. The Bruins won the first five playoff matchups between these two Atlantic Division rivals, however, in 1993 the Sabres finally got their revenge sweeping the Bruins in the Adams Division Semifinals. Don’t miss the Bruins when they come to town, as the atmosphere in the arena is always palpable when these two rivals get together.

Sabres vs Senators

Rival Team: Ottawa Senators

The Sabres and Senators have been in the same division since the Sens entered the League in 1992-93. However, things didn’t really heat up between these two until after the 2004-05 NHL Lockout. The two teams came out strong following the lockout and met in the playoffs several times in the years immediately following with tempers boiling over during a regular season game on February 22, 2007, when a full team brawl broke out. If you want to see an intense game of hockey, make sure to be attendance when the Senators are in town.
