Sabres tickets sell fast

By Eileen Buckley

Buffalo, NY – Tickets are almost sold out for the first-round playoff game for the Buffalo Sabres.

Monday morning about 50 Sabres fans camped out early to be first in line when the box office at HSBC Arena in downtown Buffalo opened.

Sabres public relations director Michael Gilbert tells WBFO News that in about one hour all but single tickets were sold out.

"We had a total of about 9,000 seats available for the three games. We virtually sold everything out. We are down to some single seats for each game Right now the response has been pretty significant," said Gilbert.

"It's great to be in the playoffs...we couldn't be more excited," said Gilbert.

The National Hockey League announced the schedule of dates and start times for the First Round (Eastern Conference Quarterfinal) of the 2011 Stanley Cup Playoffs between the Buffalo Sabres and Philadelphia Flyers.
