Eyewitness News got a special sneak preview of a new exhibit at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery. "Forty: The Sabres in the NHL" is a collection of over 200 photographs taken during the last four decades. Most of the pictures were taken by photographers Robert Shaver, Ron Moscati, and Bill Wippert. They showcase players, coaches, and fans who made the Buffalo Sabres so popular in Western New York and Southern Ontario.

For hockey fans who want to experience life on the ice, NHL 360 is a larger than life video presentation. It takes viewers onto the ice during an actual NHL game. Miniature cameras and microphones were attached to players to record a unique "Players-Eye" view.

The exhibit opens Sunday at 10am. Many current and former Sabres will be present on Sunday to greet museum goers. Admission to the Gallery is $15 for adults, $10 for seniors and students (ages 13 and up), $5 for children 6-12, and free for Gallery Members and children 5 and under.

The Buffalo Sabres Foundation organized the display. There are plans to bring the Stanley Cup to the exhibit in January.
