Molson Coors Brewing (TAP), the NHL’s official beer sponsor, says its sales in Canada are off by as much as 9 percent in the first four weeks of the current quarter compared with the same period a year earlier. Business is down 20 percent at Montreal’s La Station des Sports, where the bar, less than a mile from the Montreal Canadiens’ home ice at Bell Centre, is typically packed on hockey nights. “This hole can’t be filled,” says bar manager Terry Vasil. “Hockey is like religion here.”

Molson Coors Chief Executive Officer Peter Swinburn may seek financial compensation from the NHL for the games lost, he told the Canadian Press earlier this month.
