The Irish Volunteer (map) became the unofficial hockey home for a good swath of the city’s Vancouver Canucks* fans as well as a few Chicago Black Hawks and Washington Capitals followers during this year’s NHL playoffs. Unfortunately for them, all three teams have been knocked out, and we know have a Steel Town-Motor City showdown, with the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Detroit Red Wings facing off in the Stanley Cup finals. You can catch the first game on Sunday at 8 AM at The Irish Volunteer – the usual breakfast deals apply. Note: The Goose and Duck (map) is also showing the games, though the slingbox feed can get choppy at times.
* Given that next year marks four decades since the Canucks started and the team has yet to win a cup, I will now refer to them as the Vancouver 40-year-old Virgins.
