BUFFALO, NY - The Buffalo Sabres hosted a "party in the plaza" tonight before losing to the New York Rangers 6-3 in their 40th anniversary home opener at HSBC Arena.

The festivities kicked off at 5pm with food, drink for purchase and a free concert with the "Strictly Hip."

The Sabres raised their 2010 Northeast Division Champions banner to the rafter of HSBC Arena Saturday, and presented a 40 year anniversary video presentation prior to the game.
