Both teams are trying to get one past the ‘tenders, but Irving and Schneider both brought their A game tonight. Makes sense though. Cory can’t let a puck past him if he wishes the coin to flip in his favour, and any time a “backup” plays against the Canucks, he turns into Patrick Freaking Roy.
No wonder our powerplay is weak right now: we don’t have anyone going to the front of the net! #TGATT @PeteSchaad http://pic.twitter.com/qxxWRPFjClay Imoo
I think you’re on to something Clay. In fact, what has happened to the Canucks power play? Is it that reliant on Kesler? Or have teams figured out that the only way the Canucks can cross the blue line is with the drop pass?
It shows that Jack Bauer is not working the lines tonight. Quite a few offside calls early on. #Canucks #TGATTWalter Siu
Ummmm.. wrong reference Walter. Jack Bauer wasn’t in Top Gun.
Aww frack. The Flames score.
Great save then… CRAP!!! #CanucksG11Jacqueline B
Flames score and I cry. #Boo #CanucksG11Brittany-Jane
Edler: broken stick. Color me not shocked. End result: Flames score. #TGATT #CanucksG11luonGOLD
So… would you say that Edler is Wolfman?
Period over and the Flames are up 1-0. Is this better than the Canucks being up 2-0? Not so sure. But one thing I’m sure of is the feed CBC has decided to give us – guess this is what it’s like to watch Youtube in SD?
WTF CBC? It’s like I’m watching a low bandwidth you-tube video. #tgatt #canucksErrol Feuchuk
And that’s not the only problem CBC has.
Did anyone notice on that last flyover the arena was named General Motors Place? Jeez CBC I know you’re cutting back but comeon…. #canucksKen Leech
Wonder what Rogers thinks of that?
So glad grapes did a thing on Bieska, I miss that guy…. where did we trade him to again? #canucksJenna Fabulous
Oh Grapes. Bieska. Lalongo. It’s so weak that it’s just darn funny now.
Canucks game! Woot woot 🙂 @Alyssa_MariaR #CanucksG11 http://pic.twitter.com/EZFZt763Beth Dennis
Oh Hai Beth & Alyssa! How’s the view in Rogers Arena tonight? Probably rock solid. Almost as solid as my second favourite venue to take in a Canucks game – Maui.
The view in #maui while watching the #vancouver #canucks during the #sunset @ Moose McGillycuddy’s http://instagr.am/p/ViVa0BTHg3/bcorchard
My Attempts to Watch Canucks Hockey in HawaiiWhen I first found out that I was going to Maui, I did two things. The first was to ensure I could get the time off of work, while the se…
Seriously. If you’re ever in Maui when the Canucks are on TV, this is the place to be – Moose McGillicuddy’s. In fact, it’s my home away from home! And how can you beat that view during the intermission?
Second period is go. It’s time to #WinTheDeuce (see what I did there?).
Lappy in the box on a WEAK holding the stick penalty. #Flames to the PP. #CanucksAlece Anderson
Yes, Lappy, that’s a camera in the penalty box. You weird us all out when you stare straight into it. #CanucksEd Lau
Sure it was a rough call, and sure Lappy is in shock about it, but at least he isn’t staring into our souls like PJ Stock.
I’m almost convinced that PJ Stock just had a stroke on national television. http://pic.twitter.com/iLx6y7URDimitri Filipovic
I wish the #Canucks had a player with the last name of Street so that I could tweet incessantly #StreetsAhead. #Community.Sedinitronic
See.. I’m a fan of Community. But tweets like that will only work when Lizz is manning the TGATT desk. So I give you more Top Gun!

That’s right! TEE GEE in THREE DEE!
Where did Wiese’s speed go he had in the first week?…oh yeah, everyone else is back in shape and can out-skate him #canucks #nhlVC
Wait… Dale isn’t the Dutch Gretzky after all?
Flames goalie Irving making some fine saves, keeping his team ahead 1-0. #Canucks but not for long….. : ))Raffi Cavoukian
I like the way you think Raffi. You’re always so positive.

And unlike Raffi, ATB Financial is pretty mean. And no I wasn’t smiling. It’s called a smirk!
Canucks Vs Flames – Alex Burrows 1-1 Goal – 02.09.13 – HDcanuckshd
Messy grinding shift by the top line is rewarded with a goal. It wasn’t pretty but we’ll take it!!!! #TGATT #CanucksG11luonGOLD
And that, ladies and gentlemen is why they call him Mr. Everything. Awesome forecheck leads to a gritty goal from Burr #Canucks #TGATTKent Basky
And this, kids, is why you should shoot from anywhere. #Canucks #TGATTWalter Siu
Finally the good guys get one past Irving. Maybe he’s not Patrick Roy after all.
Oh my freaking gee! The only seconds later and there’s more Vamanos Vamanos! And from Schroeder? BOOM! I hadn’t even gotten around to talking about the powerplay.
Jordan Schroeder First NHL Goal – Canucks Vs Flames – 02.09.13 – HDcanuckshd
SHREDDER! FIRST NHL GOAL! #TGATT #CANUCKSJustin Abraham
.@McGunnigle’s first NHL game and Schroeder’s first @NHL goal!!! So happy to be in the house to witness that with my brother! #TGATTKristin McGunnigle
Schroeder got his first NHL goal even before Cervenka made it to the penalty box. #CanucksGayCanuck (Tom)
Shredder as a nickname? It works. But is Bieksa approved? I’m not so sure – last time we checked Kevin called Schroeder Tum Tum.
With Jordan "Tum Tum" Schroeder getting his first #NHL goal, y’all know that #TGATT will have #3Ninjas references now. #CanucksChris Golden
3 Ninjas Kick Back – Official Trailermovietrailer25
While I don’t quite get the reference, Jordan is definitely that small. He’s a short dude.
Did anyone promise to go streaking when Schroeder scored his first? @lyteforce #Canucks #TGATTCanucks Hockey Blog
Uhhh… no. But now that you bring it up, did you all know that Chris Palliser went streaking the in the last episode of CHBTV?

Who knew that hockey could be so dirty? What’s that? More proof that hockey is a dirty sport?

Good thing we have talented friends on twitter JJ – seems that Jay Jones from the Donnelly Group is going to make this happen!

Enough of all that silliness, back to the game!
Now the Canucks go up 3-1!
