SOUTH WINDSOR, CT -- (Marketwired) -- 04/11/14 -- After more than five months and nearly 2,500 combined regular season games, basketball and hockey fans are looking forward to the beginning of the 2014 postseason. The NHL begins its playoff schedule April 16, while the NBA follows suit April 19.
"The playoffs really take each game to another level," said Tim Fraser, sports specialist for TicketNetwork.com. "Fans who go to a postseason game have a truly unique experience, something that can't be matched during the regular season."
So far on the TicketNetwork.com marketplace, nearly 40% of tickets sold for NBA first round games have been for the Brooklyn Nets' home games at the Barclays Center. Nets playoff ticket sales have been helped by the fact that their popular crosstown rivals, the New York Knicks, are out of the playoff picture.
In hockey, the most in-demand team on TicketNetwork.com has been the Boston Bruins, who have accounted for 25% of first-round hockey game sales. The Bruins currently have the best record in the NHL and are looking to win their second championship in four seasons.
