After handing off TGATT all weekend, Lizz is back and ready to watch the Canucks take on the Calgary Flames. You know who else is back tonight? The one and only Roberto Luongo.
Schneider starts again / Unless someone poisons him / Someone Italian #HockeyHaikuPass it to Bulis
Conflicting reports about who’s in net for #Canucks. WHAT’S GOING ON!? Is Schneider dead? Was Lu found giving Lady MacBeth soliloquy?Ed Lau

Yep, Schneider has the flu, so Luo takes the surprise start and U of C netminder, Dustin Butler will be filling in on the bench. The University of Calgary’s team is called the Dinos, which is fantastic. Butler’s red locks also keep our redhead ratio intact, which is an advanced stat that really doesn’t get enough attention.
Stop the press. Schneider sick, Luongo gets surprise start. UofC goalie Dustin Butler to serve as backup for #Canucks against #Flames.Ben Kuzma
Backup goalie Butler is a red head. He is genetically pre-disposed to do well with us if needed #TGATT #canucksGlen Thayer
The #canucks should start the university goalie, I mean it would be good sportsmanship since we’re playing an AHL team #flamersTurtle
Did the Canucks sign the back up based on the red hair? #Canucks #tgattPaulie Walnuts
Is there a giant database of redheaded emergency goalies?Pass it to Bulis
Chris’s Higgins and Tanev will not be joining us, likely for awhile.
Clearly the Canucks should have loaded up on Chris’ at the deadline. We have a drastic shortage. #ChrisFamine2013j.Bowman
Calgary scores first. No one is happy, not even Flames fans. They have a draft position to protect!

Under 4 minutes left in the first and it 1-0 #Heat up on the #Canucks ,,,,,, #flamesDarren Zaleschuk
Here come the "put in Butler" jokesWyatt Arndt
Wow. If the Canucks lose this game, I’ll be razzed. Not even Flames fans want them to win this game. Jesus Christ boys. #PickItUpKeegan Duke
dear Calgary Flames: your goal song simultaneously sucks and blows.cherry grant
Canucks goal!… Or is it?
That was in. Come on. How many disallowed goals can we have this week? #CanucksHolly
No wonder Burrows is one of the most hated players in the league. But he just wants to be bffs with other goalies, I think.Omar
SERIOUSLY. WTH is with the kicking and dis-allowed goals?? Zebras are out to get us. #tgatt #CanucksluonGOLD
See, this is a no-goal call worth getting upset about, Vancouver. Hopefully they give it back.Shaun Stewart
The ref says ‘No,’ but the video review says ‘Yes!’ It’s all tied up at one. Alex Burrows was down, but it was Dennis Wideman’s stick that poked it in.

Alex Burrows goal counts. Assist to video review. #Canucks tied 1-1.Hosea Cheung
So we’re agreed then, most Burrows-ish goal ever? #TGATTSteve May
That was the most begrudging goal call I have ever seen. He clearly did not want to allow that. #justicej.Bowman
#canucks Burrows says he thought about getting down and heading that puck into the net. That would have been a good replay.Dan Murphy
One sec, I have to put all this tinfoil away #TGATTKent Basky
As your intermission entertainment I would like to share the best story of interspecies friendship that has ever existed.

As we return for the second period, we learn that our very own John Garrett never got his deserved second assist on Gordie Howe’s last NHL goal. Sportsnet wants to FIX IT.

I can only imagine what the rest of the country is going to think Canucks fans are talking about #giveittocheech #whataboutchong?Conner Galway
Yet another thing Canucks fans are whining about. #giveittoCheechRon MacLean
The second period passes and is largely uneventful.
This game is hurting my feelings.Dimitri Filipovic
I’m not being lazy tonight, I swear, there’s just not that much happening. Scoring chances are few and far between… still a 1-1 tie.Canucks Game
Y’all argue about refs and what is and isn’t diving…
Right, getting grabbed in the face and spun around is a dive. #smh #TGATT #canucksJustin Abraham
2 things…how does Burr not get a PP off getting high sticked, x chk’d and mugged. Then how is Roy getting strng armed diving?? #TGATTGlen Thayer
EMBELLISHMENT!? WHAT EVEN I DON’T… #TGATTMatthew Brosseau
Going full pirouette isn’t a dive though. Just so were clear. #Canucks #TGATTJustin Abraham
