It’s 5:00 PM and we’re in Minnesota for puck drop. I personally don’t mind the early start. It means I can watch Community earlier, and that’s October 19th.
A man with a British accent is introducing this game.. Oh lord. What if he says "ice hockey".Gráinne
Zach Parise would now like his name to be pronounce ‘Par-easy’. Obviously everyone makes fun of him for his pronunciation preferences.
I don’t care how he wants it pronounced, I’m pronouncing it PaRZA. #MinnesotaWuTangPass it to Bulis
I refuse to call Parise by the fake name he has created for himself this season.BrowntoBure
Parise? Fo’ sheezy.Chris Golden
I can’t hear "Pareezy" without thinking of Lil’ Wayne and subsequently Mountain Dew. #CanucksJordan Clarke
Is it just me or are Shorty & Cheech saying "Pareasy" as much as possible? #trollingParise #TGATT #CanucksG10luonGOLD
Dale Weise would like his last name pronounced "Gretzky" claims Dale.Wyatt Arndt
In Canucks news, Jordan Schroeder is playing his first home-town NHL game tonight, complete with the family visit. Coach V even put him in the starting lineup in this homecoming.
In his first @NHL game in Minnesota, Schroeder’s family proudly wears #Canucks colours. http://twitpic.com/c1q1uoVancouver Canucks
Great move from AV. Starting Schroeder at C for the opening face off. Homecoming game for him #Canucks #TGATTCaylie King
I maintain that Jordan Schroeder needs to get a real number ASAP.Alan O’Sullivan
Eddie Lack predicts big things for him… think if he’s right we could work out another streaking promise?
I got Schroeder for his first goal with his family in the stands. #specialmoments #godscountryEddie Lack
The Canucks get an early power play, thanks to Minny being too distacted by Parise’s new pronouncication guide to count players.
Silly Wild, you’re only allowed so many players on the ice. Like not as many as you just had. #Canucks to the PP.Canucks Game
#Wild penalized for having 6 men on the ice. "But everyone keeps telling me I’m invisible out here." says a confused Dany Heatley. #CanucksSteve Kt
Dale Weise and Zenon Konopka fight… for like a long time. I’m pretty sure you could have left to get a beer and still make it back before play started again.
Dale Weise vs Zenon Konopka Feb 7, 2013hockeyfightsdotcom
Konopka vs Weise. There’s a lot of grabbing going on. A few jabs here and there. I’ll call it an anticlimactic tie #Canucks #TGATTCaylie King
How the hell did Konopka manage to convince Weise to drop em? Good on him… #CanucksCurtis Reid
PUNCH HIM WITH YOUR CHIN WEISE! #canucksJosh Hall
Props to #Canucks winger Weise for taking on Konopka. #Wild centre could be cast in the Sopranos.Ben Kuzma
Fist-fighting on ice skates will never not look awkward.GayCanuck
The S.S. Burrows is back in action! Alex Burrows makes the play, and Daniel Sedin gets takes the rebound and the goal. 1 – 0 Canucks, midway through the first period.
Canucks at Wild – Daniel Sedin 1-0 Goal – 02.07.13 – HDcanuckshd
I get home, turn the game on and Danny scores. #yourewelcomeK8
Goal by Daniel assist to Burrows. #mnwild scorer gives Clutterbuck a hit. #Canucks #TGATTSteve May
TGATTTTT! : The sound I made when I saw Daniel snatch that rebound. Knew there was something more to it then a blog feature. #tgattSpencerDubas
I have no idea what sound that is, but it is exactly what we named this feature for.
The Canucks get a powerplay and take the full 2 minutes to score. Chris Higgins tips in the puck off a Zack Kassian assist and it’s 2-0 good guys – that’s the first goal for Higgins’ abs this season.
Canucks at Wild – Chris Higgins 2-0 Goal – 02.07.13 – HDcanuckshd
Nice tip by Washboard.Bryan F.
HIGGGGYYYYY!!! THAT WAS ALL ABS!Jenn Johnson
Higgy Higgy, can’t you see, sometimes your goals just hypnotize me … #90sremixMelaina

Keith Ballard takes an interference penalty. He’s not quite sure why though.
Did I hear Ballard scream "FOR WHAT??" on that penalty? I’m loving new angry Ballard. Screw laid back "everything is fine" Ballard.Wyatt Arndt
I heard the Bally "FOR WHAT?!?" and appreciated it… #CanucksCurtis Reid
There is nothing better RT @blue_raven Sassy Bally = always a favouriteK8
Keith Ballard leading the team in YellingGráinne
@TheStanchion I remember when Conan played a live action version of "Angry Ballard" http://pic.twitter.com/XnGwBfVRj.Bowman
Weise is making friends left and right. After being pushed into Nick Backstrom, Ryan Suter has some words for the Dutch God.
First intermission. Now seems like a good as time as any to check out the latest CHB TV episode.

AB ATTACK. Chris Higgins just dislodged a glass panel.
Higgy’s hit just dislodged the glass. #Canucks #absofsteelCanucks Hockey Blog
For those keeping score: Ballard hits someone, puts ’em on their ass. Higgins hits someone, breaks glass. Weise hits someone, falls down.j.Bowman
Tanev down. I repeat, Tanev down.
Tanev come back. Tanev come back. Tanev come back. Tanev come back. Tanev come back.Beantown Canuck
Tanev got hurt. Get some ice..QUICKLY! @camcharron and @thomasdrance will need it.Bryan F.
False alarm. Tanev is back.
Chris Tanev back on the #Canucks bench. We can all relax, the sniper is back. #tgattMatt Lee
You can’t hurt a man with ice in his veins #TanevJenn Johnson
Huge save by Schneider! Confession: I messed up and lost some tweets. Here’s some Hilary Duff instead. It’s pretty inspiring stuff.

Henrik takes a tripping penalty.
That was a penalty based on reputation #swedishthugJenn Johnson
Mason Raymond scores. I bet he heard my Hilary Duff song. Told you it was inspiring.
Canucks at Wild – Mason Raymond 3-0 Goal – 02.07.13 – HDcanuckshd
Mayray…FROM HIS FEET!Bryan F.
No assist to Schroeder there, which is a damn shame. Clutterbuck was credited with 4 hits though. 3-0 for the good guys #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
Unassisted? That’s garbage. In his home state? Toss the kid a freaking apple. #TGATT #CanucksJustin Abraham
I’m rooting for Schroeder, but John Garrett realizes assists aren’t handed out like PEZ, right? #Canucks #tgattMatt Lee
Two and a half minutes later and it’s Hansen’s turn to score. Raymond gets the apple.
Canucks at Wild – Jannik Hansen 4-0 Goal – 02.07.13 – HDcanuckshd
HO. LEE. CRAP. Jannik Hansen, Danish sniper. This team is really starting to make me believe #PresTrophy3peatbaby #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
HONEY BADGER DONT CARE! HONEY BADGER SCORES WHENEVER HE WANTS! #tgatt #hansen #CanucksErrol Feuchuk
And suddenly, there was fun! Feels good to score a bunch of goals against the Wild despite their best efforts to make the game unwatchableSeamus McKale
THE DREADED 4 GOAL LEADMyra McIntosh
Are you telling me the #Canucks are finishing the second with a 4-0 lead…I believe the 2-0 curse is officially over! Wooooooo! #TGATTKiran Mehat
So it seems to me that this season we either lose a 2 goal lead… or we win 1000000-1. No objections. @canucksgame #TGATTArielle J. Tuliao
Minnesota fans are not happy, but to be fair, they do live in Minnesota.
Wild fans are booing their team hahaha. I thought your team was the 2nd coming of the old Montreal Canadiens guys?!?!Schneider’s Teeth
oh, that is music to my ears. Wild fans booing their team off the ice at the end of the 2nd #TGATTKent Basky
Oh, right. One of Minnesota’s offseason signings wasn’t Jesus. No wonder the Canucks are still better than the Wild at hockey.Dimitri Filipovic
Wild fans, its time to come to your senses. Your biggest rival is not the Canucks, it’s the win column.BrowntoBure
We’re back for the third period. Konopka decides he needs to fight Weise one more time.
Most obvious instigator penalty to call ever.Wyatt Arndt
The run up to that Weise-Konopka fight was pretty funny. "C’mon, fight me!" – "No." – "C’mon!" – "No." – "I’ll be your friend!" #canucksSeamus McKale
Wild fans love their goons! I guess because their team can’t win.Schneider’s Teeth
Zenon Konopka. Can’t even beat Dale Weise in a fight. Your Minnesota Wild, everyone. #regressionorstagnation #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
I think what Konopka was saying from the penalty box was "pucking choke". #Canucks #TGATTCanucks Hockey Blog
Tom Gilbert scores on the power play caused by a Bieksa holding call. So who said “Shutout”? It was you, Kevin, wasn’t it?
Ref calls Bieksa for holding. Actually, called him "Kevin"… pretty familiar!?Brent Butt
Rourke sounded like Bieksa’s dad sending him to this room, "Kevin" *points to box* #tgattJustine Galo
This is all your fault, Kevin. I guess we can’t have shutouts, Kevin. You think about what you did, Kevin. #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
Im gonna smack whoever said the word #shutout… 4-1 now. Love you #Bieksa but seriously, was it worth it?!Dawn
Did anyone have “concealing the puck” in their Dany Heatley penalty pool? If so, you won.
Dany ‘the concealer’ Heatley. #TGATT #CanucksJustin Abraham
The great thing about playing the Wild? Take a dumb penalty and Heatley will go out of his way to one-up you #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
The refs seem to be over this whole “penalty” thing. They must have heard Scandal was a good one tonight…
I feel like the refs said to each other, "let’s just stop blowing whistles for any reason, let’s get this over with ASAP." #canucksSeamus McKale
Ballard chops Clutterbuck’s stick out of his hands. Clutterbuck credited with two hits. #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
With a wave of the hand, "That’s not the slashing penalty you’re looking for." Ref replies, "that’s not a penalty, carry on." #CanucksChris Golden
WHOOPS, jinxed it. More stoppages. I just want to watch Community, can we wrap this thing up soon guys?! #canucksSeamus McKale
True. We all just want some Community.
Community Epic Trailernbc
Game over. Canucks win 4-1.
so we win in regulation! No OT stress or no Shoot Out agony!! WHOOO HOOO!!! #CanuckNationheartsareallgoodtonight #beatingWildly #TGATTDeborah D Burke
that was a damn fine game. kudos to Konopka, you incited laughter at how utterly useless you are. #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
Textbook road game. Schneider was great. That’s exactly the type of game you need from your backup. #waitwhat #CanucksJordan Clarke
One big happy family. http://pic.twitter.com/WINfAWqTVancouver Canucks
Next game is Saturday vs the Calgary Flames. Get yourself ready for Hockey Day in Canada.
