The Canucks and Wild don’t like each other much, but the only real fight tonight was the fight to stay awake while watching it. The lovely and talented Lizz Moffat has a scholarly obligation and her usual substitute, @lyteforce, is busy riding around the Sky Train in his underwear so you’ve got me tonight! Bachelor life starts now. When do the pants come off? Now on the train or at home? — Chris Golden (@lyteforce) February 13, 2013 Ummm… we better just get to the game.
The Canucks are back from a short two-game roadtrip where they potted four solid points and are looking to douse the Flames. And with Chris Golden manning the CHB TGATT desk tonight, you all know what that means: Well, this game is going fast. Top Gun fast. #Canucks #TGATT — Walter Siu (@waterboy99troop) February 10, 2013 That’s right. Top Freaking Gun!
The Canucks are in Minnesota, the second – and last – stop of their mini two-game road trip. Zach Parise would now like his name to be pronounced ‘Par-easy’. Obviously, everyone makes fun of him for his pronunciation preferences. Is it just me or are Shorty & Cheech saying "Pareasy" as much as possible? #trollingParise #TGATT #CanucksG10 — doubleLuonGOLD (@luonGOLD) February 8, 2013 Dale Weise would like his last name pronounced "Gretzky" claims Dale. — Wyatt Arndt (@TheStanchion) February 8, 2013 Remember when Cody Hodgson tried to correct all of our pronunciations of his last name? Good times.
I want to see this coin. Is it a loonie? A twoonie? A quarter? Does it have pictures of Cory and Bobby Lu on either side? Where does AV keep this coin? Is it always in his pocket? Does he lock it away somewhere with his crystal ball, voodoo dolls and a pack of vodka-infused chewing gun? If the media doesn’t insist on filming a coin toss before the end of the season, they’re not doing their job.
After falling 3-2 to the Oilers on home ice, the Canucks head to Rexall Place to seek revenge against the young guns. https://twitter.com/BrowntoBure/status/298626309662334976 Ouch. Now, on to the game.
Are you ready for this? I hope so, because it’s Canucks v. Blackhawks baby!
After a three-game jaunt through California, the Canucks are back home against the Colorado Avalanche. Lizz Moffat recaps the game in your tweets.
Although I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting @AY604 in person yet, we have a connection that extends beyond Twitter. It turns out that one of Adrian’s good friends played hockey with my cousin Dusty in Japan back in the day. And thanks to the generosity of both his friend and my cousin, Adrian is the proud owner of some bright red Vaughn goalie pads. They look pretty darn sweet. In his words: Adrian (@AY604) was born on a tiny island in the South Pacific known for its high end, square shaped bottled water or what the locals call ‘tap’....
And already things are looking pretty good. At least compared to last night.
Well, five minutes have passed and the #Canucks haven’t dug themselves a 2-0 hole yet.
Clowe heads back to the box for high-sticking. He has a full out tantrum about it, earning him another, like, a zillion penalties. He’s done for the night.
