DENVER – As Central Division Champion Avalanche prepares for the Stanley Cup playoffs, Denver Mayor Michale Hancock and Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper get in the mood.

Hancock announced on Monday the “Burgundy and Blue Week” in town for the week of April 14th.

The city and county of Denver will illuminate the city and county buildings with burgundy and blue lights starting Monday and go through the first-round playoff series against the Minnesota Wild.

Also in progress: The Denver International Airport sign on Pena Boulevard will be illuminated in burgundy red; Team captain Gabriel Landeskog will greet DIA passengers on the train with a message; the D&F Tower is illuminated in burgundy and blue light; and the lights on 14th Street will change to burgundy and blue.

Hickenlooper ordered two avalanche flags to be hoisted near the western steps of the Capitol from Monday while the team is in the playoffs.
