We’re back for another Canucks game, or at least we will be if the team ever manages to get to Calgary. They were supposed to to fly out Saturday night, but snow kept them in Vancouver, and pushed the flight back until after 1pm. As a result, Canucks fans spent their morning frantically searching for Calgary weather updates.
The snow has really eased off in Calgary & according to YYC website, planes are landing. So there’s hope #canucks #flames #nhlMiles Tautscher
Y’know, I’d kinda like to see the #Canucks change on the plane and get shuttled right to the Saddledome. Takes you back to peewee days.Matt Lee
I hope Denzel Washington is flying the #Canucks plane. Or maybe not? I haven’t actually bothered to see Flight.Jordan Clarke
No, no, no. You do not want that.

Eventually the storms clears enough for planes to land, and the race is on.

Canucks plane leaving 4 hours before puck drop is borderline insane.Shane M
Never mind, like the mail, the Canucks must get through. RT @VanCanucks: #Canucks plane about to take off.Chad Forrest
Maybe the #Canucks and the Flames can have an impromptu Winter Classic on YYC’s runway.Canucks Hockey Blog
#canucks starting goalie is on the ground in Calgary. Looks like arrival 4MT arrival at Saddledome. http://yfrog.com/es6e4nojDan Murphy
The Saddledome actually has fewer empty seats than I would have guessed for a place that had “sideways snow” earlier in the afternoon. I guess you built a certain immunity when you leave Vancouver. We’d probably have resorted to burning books to stay warm like the kids in The Day After Tomorrow by now.
We have #Canucks #TGATT http://pic.twitter.com/jJAs8PycOKMatthew Brosseau
At least one Canuck appreciated the delay last night. Jannik Hansen became a dad.
#canucks Jannik Hansen happy last night’s flight was cancelled. His wife went into labour when he got home and then gave birth to twins.Dan Murphy
Just got the names of the new Hansen twins: Daniel & Lucas!!! Congrats again to Jannik & his wife Karen. #CanucksCanucks Game
Hansen named his new twin boys Daniel & Lucas. I guess we know who his favorite Sedin is. Congrats Jannik. Condolences Henrik. 😉 #tgattVictoria
@canucksgame Honey Badger due for 2 "I just had a baby" goals tonight. Congrats on your new baby boys Hansen! #TGATT #Canucks #twinsluonGOLD
Jannik Hansen had twins and named one of them Daniel? Typical honey badger. #CanucksPass it to Bulis
Has anyone ever seen a baby honey badger? Those little devils are adorable.
Kevin Bieksa is back in the press box tonight, and Cam Barker will be making his debut tonight, at the expense of poor Keith Ballard.
Jeez, I spend a couple hours not checking Twitter and suddenly it’s Cam Barker time? BRING THE PAIN #canucksSeamus McKale
I hope Cam Barker scores one million goals tonight. One million.Taryn D.
“@justinabraham: In what Universe is Barker an upgrade on Ballard? #smh #TGATT #Canucks” LMAO. I warned youOil Country
Considering they were still in Vancouver less than 4 hours before game time, the Canucks are playing surprisingly well. Or maybe the Flames just suck that much.
The Canucks are not playing like a team that played last night and was on a plane 2 hours ago… that is to say they are playing wellSeamus McKale
Higgins scores on the breakaway. Awwww yeah!

Higgy makes no mistake on that breakaway. Beauty wrister short side! #Canucks #TGATTCaylie King
A closer look on that breakaway shows Higgins lifting his shirt, distracting Taylor with his perfect abs before the snipe #TGATTKent Basky
