Sabres fans have been asking for a return to royal blue uniforms, for what seems like two decades now. The team changed from their traditional royal blue look in 1996 when the team moved into what was then called the Marine Midland Arena and switched to black and red uniforms from 1996-2006.

This week is a "Return to Royal," which means special giveaways and surprises will be in store for the remainder of the week. Many Buffalo landmarks will be lit up in royal blue on Wednesday to commemorate the team's return to their old look.
