MONTREAL - Canadian hockey fans are gearing up for an early morning start tomorrow with Canada facing off against Sweden in the men's gold medal final in Sochi.
Kenny MacIntyre, a bartender at Mcleans Pub in Montreal, says he's been taking reservations all day for the game, which begins at 7 a.m. Eastern time.
MacIntyre says the only other time the pub has opened at that hour is St. Patrick's Day.
In British Columbia, the Olympic match-up starts so early that bars won't even have a chance to close.
They will be allowed to extend their hours to stay open for the 4 a.m. Pacific time start - though they won't be allowed to serve liquor until 9 a.m.
Governments in the Prairie provinces, meanwhile, are allowing bars and pubs to serve liquor by the time the puck drops.
