BOSTON (CBS) – Playoff tickets for the Bruins went on sale on Wednesday morning, and depending on your point of view, people are either falling victim to the power of the Internet or are finally emerging out of the Stone Age.

When Bruins playoff tickets went on sale in the past, fans used to line up in bunches while waiting overnight in the cold. Early Wednesday morning, there were just two people in line: Matt and Leanne.

WBZ NewsRadio 1030’s Mark Katic reports.

Matt arrived outside the TD Garden at 5:30 a.m.

“I know. I’m surprised! When I got here, I thought there would be a few guys here, but I got lucky,” said Matt.

Leanne, meanwhile, arrived early for her boyfriend.

“I would have slept in a little longer had I known,” said Leanne.

Thousands of other fans likely opted to grab the tickets online or on the phone through Ticketmaster.
