The Canucks are battered and bruised, but made it to Phoenix. Well most of them did. Steve Pinizzotto and Zack Kassian did not. Chris Higgins did, but tweaked his back in the morning and couldn’t play. At this point they really just need to hold on and bubble wrap everyone. At all times.

@canucksgame I hope no more people gets injured!Eddie Lack
Not superstitious but I posted this last time and the #Canucks won. Nothing wrong with a bit of Divine Intervention. <a href="http://t.co/iF44ziUvLI" class="">pic.twitter.com/iF44ziUvLI</a>Clay Imoo
With a shortage of forwards, the Canucks had to make some choices.
First up: A call up for prospect Andrew Gordon.
Andrew Gordon out for warmup wearing No. 44. Somewhere, Todd Bertuzzi is pissed. #CanucksBrad Ziemer
Commissioner Gordon is playing for the #Canucks tonight, eh? #TGATTChris Golden
Also, playing Keith Ballard on the fourth line.
I see what AV was doing now! Hiding and resting the Canucks secret scoring threat in the doghouse! You sly devil you! #Ballard #cupisoursSpencer
What if Ballard has an amazing game as a forward and we all realize that he’s not that bad he was just playing out of position all the timeTurtle
I so want Bally to have an absolutely AWESOME game!!! C’MON BALLY YOU CAN DO THIS!! #TGATTDeborah D Burke
These #Canucks forward lines are either going to create something glorious or be the biggest dog’s breakfast in NHL history. #TGATTClay Imoo
And the Canucks’ first goal comes from everyone’s favorite half-man, half-machine: Chris Tanev.

#BLAMETANEV for the first goal of the game!! #tgatt #CanucksG30luonGOLD
I don’t always do cartwheels in my backyard; but when I do, it’s because Chris Tanev scored. #TGATTj.Bowman
Hey @lyteforce give the kids at BP a show. Tanev scores #Canucks #tweetup #tgattJustine Galo
Slapshot to the face is no big deal for CT #GOAL #truck #tanev #canucksolivia browning
Tanev! 1-0 #Canucks! That sound you hear is @lyteforce screaming like a little girl.Ed Lau
I’m not a big stat guy, but the Canucks win 100% of the games in which Chris Tanev scores a goal. #science #TGATTj.Bowman
Sexy defensive play MayRay. You get a gold star.Jenn Johnson
Crazy injuries. Illness. When all hope is lost… #CallOnTanev TGATTKent Basky

In the second period, Daniel Sedin takes the puck to the net and gets pushed in to Coyotes goaltender, Mike Smith.
I think Smith was trying to shield himself as opposed to deliberately punching Daniel. Will have to see it again though #CanucksMatt Baker
Mike Smith proving that glove hurts. #Canucks #TGATTShane Wheaton
Smith gets a glove punch in and Daniel goes off the ice, leaving a blood trail as he goes.
Eventually the Canucks will only be dressing a team of defenceman. Alain will call this "the best thing I’ve ever seen."Wyatt Arndt
I can’t believe AV let Daniel get hurt on that play, that is just SOOOO typical. #Canucks #TGATTWe’veGotTwins
NOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOW DARE YOU DO THAT TO DANNY.Alix
Smith looks like he needs to leave, but he toughs it out.
Mike Smith embellishes contact with the best of ’em. He’s the Dustin Brown of goaltendingSeamus McKale
It’s Goaltender Hot Potato. #Canucks #coyotesLinds
This awkward Mike Smith or Jason Labarbera dance is weird…. "I’m leaving NOPE JUST KIDDING. Now I’m leaving. NOPE, SKATE SHARPENING!"Wyatt Arndt
Not to be outdone, Danny soon returns to the bench.
Danny’s back… he doesn’t need his face intact to score, anyway. #CanucksElisabeth Blue
"Daniel Sedin is returning to the bench, with a Phantom of the Opera mask" – What I wish Shorty just said.j.Bowman
MY DANNY’S BACK AND YOU’RE GONNA BE SORRY. HEY LA HEY LA, MY DANNY’S BACK.Jenn Johnson

Call it karma, but as Smith tries to play the puck later in the period, Alex Edler runs into him behind the net and Phoenix takes offense. The gloves are off.
whenever someone hits Mike Smith – legitimate or not – he turns into the Wacky Waving Inflatable Arm Tube Man.Michael Blinn
Wow Mike Smith should change his first name to Mime Smith. What an actor! #douchebag #tgattJustine Galo
Daniel Day-Lewis in net for the Coyotes. This time he ain’t walking away with a statue.j.Bowman
Doesn’t Mike Smith worry about hurting his neck snapping his head back like that? Unreal. 5 for charging? Hilarious #TGATTKent Basky
Cheech is completely correct. Goalie out of crease, holds puck, he should be treated like a d-man. #canucks #coyotes #NHL @sportsnetmurphJosh Hall
Maybe if you don’t want to get hit don’t go that far out of your net you diving weenie.Alix
