BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - While it was a record 'Party in the Plaza' this Easter Sunday outside the HSBC Arena, fans still left disappointed.

An estimated 6,000 fans crowded outside in the plaza to watch the Sabres taken on the Philadelphia Flyers in game 6 of the best of 7 series.

While the day started out on a high note as the team took an early lead, the mood soon became deflated as the Flyers tied the game, and eventually won in overtime, sending the series back to Philadelphia for the deciding game 7 on Tuesday.

And while fans left the arena disappointed, they were certainly not defeated, with most confident the Sabres would bring home victory, so they can return for more parties in the plaza in round 2 of the playoffs.
