TORONTO - A technical glitch has left some frustrated Toronto Maple Leafs fans without playoff tickets.

Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd., and Ticketmaster Canada apologized after fans couldn't purchase tickets when a limited number were supposed to go on sale at 10 a.m. Thursday on Ticketmaster.ca and MLSE.com.

The ticket links on the two websites experienced technical issues that took about a half an hour to resolve, the glitch leaving many fans believing the tickets were already sold out.

Many took to Twitter to vent their frustration.

"Glad I didn't plan my morning around getting tickets. Oh. Wait. I did. .DogAndPonyShow," one fan posted.

From another fan: "I've been hitting the refresh button for almost an hour... I hope I get tickets after all this!"
