BUFFALO, N.Y. (WKBW) — The Buffalo Sabres are bringing back a flood of memories in time for Thursday's matchup against the Nashville Predators.

Team officials have decorated the KeyBank Center to look like The Aud, using t-shirts to mimic the old Memorial Auditorium's iconic red, blue and gold seats. Plenty of Sabres legends will be at the arena for "Aud Night."

According to the Sabres, Buffalo Memorial Auditorium opened in 1940. The team played in the building for three decades, moving to their current home in 1996.

Tickets are still available for the game. Puck drops at 7:00 p.m. Fans who attend the game will get a free t-shirt.
