All bars in Saskatchewan, with the exception of those in Prince Albert, will be allowed to open early for Sunday’s Olympic men’s hockey final.
The Saskatchewan Liquor and Gaming Authority says bars have been given the option to open at 5:30 a.m. – four hours earlier than they are usually allowed to serve alcohol.
Prince Albert was the only community that specifically asked the government not to allow bars to open early.
Canada will play for a second straight gold medal against Sweden at Bolshoy Ice Dome in Sochi. The puck drops at 6 a.m. CST.
