May 19 2022, 12:24 am

Flames fans itching to take in Game 1 of the Battle of Alberta from the Red Lot will have to find somewhere else to cheer on Calgary.

The Flames announced on social media that the outdoor viewing area will be closed for the evening due to “extremely high and damaging winds.”

“This decision was made out of an abundance of caution for our patrons and we appreciate your understanding in this matter,” the team wrote online.

The lot has been incredibly popular for the Flames’ playoff run, with the team ultimately deciding to make it a ticketed viewing area.

The Flames face rivals the Oilers in Game 1 of the second-round series tonight. Puck drop is at 7:30 pm.
