I have had to ask BW3, The Crown, Winking Lizard and tons more to just plain put the game on when they have one, usually they have poker or Friends on with no regard that there is a Jackets game going on. Very frustrating.
High Becks is a pretty great place to watch Hockey too. Actually it's a great bar in general. It's just south of down town at the corner of High and Beck (duh). The two guys that co-own it are great and usually one of them is bartending. I forget their names but the owner with glasses has played hockey I think his whole life and about a month ago was bartending with a broken arm from a hockey injury.

It has two well set up, well light, not in the way dart boards, a foosball table (the good kind with slanted corners and one goalie) that is no charge, a pool table and a freakin ping pong table. Mondays they have free pizza all night. They make all kinds of different pizzas too, not just cheese or something to be cheap about it. Sometimes though the pizza is destroyed the second it comes out by a bunch of vultures but they'll have another one cooking ready to come out in about 10 mins.

I like the RBar alot, but I really like High Beck too. It's locally owned, divey (in a good way) and just good times. I may sound like a commercial but i love darts, foosball, hockey, and free pizza so the place won my heart.

RBar still rules for pre-game and knowledgeable hockey fans though.
