Waikiki Sports Bars for NHL hockey playoffs

Staying at the Waikii Banyan from May 4th to 14th and was wondering if anyone knows what sports bars are nearby that might be showing the hockey playoffs?

Giovanni's Pastrami, Moose McGillycuddy's, Buffalo Wild Wings and not Waikiki, but local, The Varsity.

We go to Giovanni's to watch baseball games. They have lots of TV's happy hour and free pizza slices (just plain cheese but it keeps my wife happy) with purchase of drinks.

They have separate audio for each table so you can hear the game you are watching.

It is on Beachwalk so a little ways from you but really nice place.

Go in and up the stairs in the back of the restaurant to the sports bar area.

The Varsity has been closed for some time now, not sure if/when they'll reopen.

I like Round Table Pizza (the Ohana East location). I've heard good things about Giovanni Pastrami (they serve Round Table Pizza, actually) but I have not been.

The Round Table Pizza place is good to watch any kind of sports. LuLu's is also a good place.

In my experience....

The two places you can count on to show hockey games are:

Legends Sports Pub, about 8 blocks (0.4 miles) down Kuhio Ave towards the center of Waikiki. They pride themselves on carrying a wide varierty of international sports.

Buffalo Wild Wings, on the far other side of Waikiki, along Ala Moana Blvd across from the Ilikai. I'm not a huge fan of the joint, but they always seem to have hockey on in season.

Most Honolulu sports bars aren't real big on hockey, particularly with basketball in the playoffs and a ton of basbeall on every night.

Never hurts to ask though, along with calling for a "shout out" by all Canucks in the house.

Actually I didn't mean The Varsity I meant RB Sports Bar that used to be the Red Lion.
