Icehockey championships 2012

Dear EF members,

It's once again time for the world icehockey championships! I'm generally not a huge fan of icehockey, but I do enjoy the championships very much and I'm now reaching out to fellow hockey fans.

I am wondering if anyone can recommend a (sports) bar or pub in Zurich that shows all the hockey games?

Oh, and please feel free to use this thread for speculation and general discussion relating to the games

Yes, on SF2. They show all Switzerland games plus some quarterfinal, semi-final and finally the grande finale on May 20th.

I think it clashes with the FA Cup Final. Need to check.
Actually could be an interesting Saturday sportswise: Switzerland - Kazakhstan, Liverpool - Chelsea, Ulster - Leinster
