With the return of the  “Battle of Alberta” — the first playoff series between the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers since 1991 — the Red Mile is also back. 

The Red Mile has been a playoff tradition since the Flames made it to the Stanley Cup final in 2004, when thousands of fans flooded the streets of 17th Ave. after playoff victories. It was back in full force for the second round of this year’s playoffs, including May 18 when the Flames defeated the Oilers in the first game of their series.
