Hockey playoffs are picking up speed, and if you're scratching your head as to why your favorite bar's TV's are all on the same baseball game, I can help.

Here's how to get hockey on the tube.

If your favorite bar has a lot of TV's, ask your bartender if he would change the channel to a game you want to see. He'll probably help you out, since he wants you to feel welcome and keep your business.

Always ask.
