It's a sellout: Mooseheads tickets go fast for Game 5 of QMJHL final

Suffice it say, Halifax Mooseheads fans are primed and ready to get Cup crazy.

About 100 people were lined up waiting for tickets to go on sale for Game 5 at the Metro Centre on Thursday morning, with the first people arriving around 8 p.m. the night before.

“I’m going to be in the arena watching us win the (President) Cup,” said Jennifer Webster, the first fan to get her tickets after they went on sale at 10 a.m.

“There’s no fear (of us not winning). Not after how they played last night. They want to take it. They want to end it (Friday) night.”

Moose fever couldn’t be higher as Halifax is one win away from its first QMJHL title after beating the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 7-4 on Wednesday to take a commanding 3-1 series lead in the best-of-seven final.

If Halifax wins the President Cup, it would be the first time in team history.

Tickets sold out for Game 5 in less than 20 minutes. For those who didn't get tickets, Eastlink will be carrying the 7 p.m. game live.

“We understand there are way more people that wanted tickets than were available. We appreciate the patience and support,” the Mooseheads said via Twitter.

Even though the last game is normally the hardest to win in a playoff series, fans at the Metro Centre can’t see Halifax not getting the job done Friday.

“We’re going to bring it home for sure,” said Matt Hubley, who was in line for tickets at 10 p.m. Wednesday and left with upper bowl seats.

“Home ice advantage, bring home the Cup.”
