A Word to the Wise

While most of these venues tend to attract Minnesota Wild fans on game day, there are no guarantees.

First of all, not all ice hockey games are broadcast. And even when they are, sometimes sports bars won’t turn on the sound. Otherwise, they might show other events. And there is always the chance the venue might be booked for special activities.

Also, fans sometimes migrate to other venues. And bars sometimes close.

Therefore, you should always call ahead to make sure that the game you want to watch will be broadcast.
