Flames-Avalanche game postponed because of blizzard in Denver

No makeup date has been set.

"We have been in close consultation with the National Hockey League and the city of Denver and all parties realized that this was the best course of action given the current conditions," said Paul Andrews, executive vice-president of Kroenke Sports, the owner of the Avalanche.

"The safety of our season ticket-holders and all our fans and employees was the primary concern."

Wednesday night's NBA game in Denver between the Nuggets and the Phoenix Suns was also postponed because of the storm, which shut down Denver International Airport and several major highways and stranded thousands of travelers.
