Hockey fans are lining up to get their hands on San Jose Sharks playoff tickets.

They went on sale Friday morning around 10 a.m. at the HP Pavilion ticket office. Everyone in line took part in a pre-numbered wristband system to determine who got first dibs.

The tickets, which are for the first three home games, are also available online.

The sharks are still fighting for playoff positioning and play the Kings in Los Angeles Saturday night to close out the regular season.

The playoffs start next week.
