Kukla's Korner Hockey

1st Round Attendance Record

With a sellout crowd of 19,289 expected at Pengrowth Saddledome tonight for Game 7 of the Calgary Flames-Anaheim Mighty Ducks series, the NHL will post record attendance for the opening round of the 2006 Stanley Cup Playoffs. A per-game average of 18,785 fans attended the 43 games in the Conference Quarterfinals through Tuesday, eclipsing the previous high of 18,770 set in 2004, and tonight's expected sellout will boost this year's opening-round figure.
