Colorado now trails the Rage by five points.

Colorado Eagles to Make Hockey History, Break Sellout Streak Record

Eagles will set new record for minor league professional hockey on Saturday

LOVELAND, Colo. ? Saturday night, with their 145th consecutive regular season sellout, the Colorado Eagles will set a new standard for minor league professional hockey. Minor league hockey has been played in North America for over 100 years, and come Saturday, no team will have strung together as many sellouts as the Eagles. Including playoff games, the Eagles will have sold out 173 consecutive games total ? every single game in their four-and-a-half years of operation.

The record has been held by the Wilkes-Barre Penguins (minor-league affiliate of the Pittsburgh Penguins) of the American Hockey League since October 30, 2004; their streak began on December 22, 2000. The Wilkes-Barre Penguins? streak included two games at the home of the NHL's Penguins, the nearly-17,000-seat Mellon Arena. The AHL club did not sell out the Mellon Arena, but did sell over 8,143 tickets (the capacity of Wilkes-Barre?s arena) to each game.
