Playoff hockey is back in Toronto, and fans are paying big bucks to be there in person.
At Stubhub, the cheapest ticket to get into the Maple Leafs’ first home postseason game since 2004 — tonight against the Bruins at the Air Canada Centre — is $205.
And that’s for a single in one of the balcony’s standing-room-only sections.
If you actually want to sit for the game, it’ll cost you $264 minimum.
For the good seats, prices are approaching $1,000. (Though it’s not clear if anyone’s actually paid this much.)
Today is also “Blue and White Day” in Toronto, as proclaimed by the city’s mayor, Rob Ford.
No paper bags required.
