The Halifax Mooseheads playoff run ended Tuesday night as they were defeated 3-2 by the Val-d'Or Foreurs in Game 7 of the series.

The game at the Halifax Metro Centre was sold out. Philippe Gadoury and Nikolaj Ehlers scored for the Mooseheads, but the team was unable to hold off Val-d'Or.

It means the Mooseheads' season has ended shy of making the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final and the team will not repeat last year's run when they won the Memorial Cup.

Tickets went on sale in Halifax on Tuesday morning and about 100 people were lined up when the ticket booths opened at the Metro Centre.

Jen Mosher arrived three hours early to make sure she could score some tickets. She says she's confident the Mooseheads can win and move on to the league final.

Earlier in the day Mooseheads fans around the city were gearing up for the game. At the Tim Hortons on Lady Hammond Road, baker Jillian Mosher created Mooseheads-themed donuts — which quickly sold out.

"We've been doing it for a while, different holidays," she said. "But I really wanted to show our support for our local team."
