The team has managed to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals twice. The first time around, they lost to the Philadelphia Flyers in 1975 and the second time, they lost to the Dallas Stars in 1999. Their earlier years were however more successful. They made the playoffs for the first time early on in the 1972-73 season, but ended up losing in the quarterfinals. In the 1974-75 season, the Sabres tied for the best record in the NHL. The 1970s were an overall good time for the team, thanks to The French Connection, consisting of Gilbert Perreault, Rick Martin and Rene Robert.
A mixed bag
The 1980s were not as successful as the previous decade. The team finished in the middle of the Adams Division standings regularly. Aside from a few victories, this era was dotted with losses for the team. Mid nineties were no better either as the Sabres finished fifth in the Northeast Division in the 1995-96 season. The 1996-97 season was a huge turnaround, as the team won their first division title in 16 years.
Following this came a few struggling years, with ownership turmoil, financial troubles and a league takeover. But the Sabres came out strong through all challenges to deliver an improved form. If you want to check them out, get these Buffalo Sabres Pittsburgh tickets now.
