Ball Arena Attendance Increased for Avalanche Playoff Games



Just in to the breaking news desk: The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment has OK’d an increase of attendance at Avalanche games, starting with Game 1 of the postseason. Now, instead of 4,050 capacity at Ball Arena, 7,750 fans will be allowed in. This goes for Nuggets games too.

That is 42.3 percent of capacity at Ball, up from the current 22.1 percent.

That is good news for an Avs team that hopes to have home-ice advantage through every round of the playoffs. That can still happen, provided the Avs beat the Kings in the next two games. I expect Game 1 to be on Sunday, though that is purely a guess at this point.
