The Colorado Eagles are home to take on the Milwaukee Admirals for the first time since March of 2020. The two teams were unable to play last year, as Milwaukee opted not to play the 2020-21 season.
Colorado and Milwaukee faced off four times during the 2019-20 season before it was cut short. The Eagles won three of those four games; one in regulation, one in overtime, and one in a shoot-out.
Tonight is the Eagles' annual Fireworks Night presented by Mountain Dew Spark.
Be sure to join us outside, in front of the Budweiser Events Center 10 minutes after the game for Northern Colorado's largest wintertime fireworks show! There will also be samplings at the Mountain Dew truck outside the main entrance. You can watch the show from the comfort of your car, outside the main entrance or from the VIP area for season ticket holders.
