Photo credit: Vancouver Sun The Vancouver Sun printed this hilarious picture from last night’s Canucks win against the Habs.

For your troubles, we’re giving away a pair of tickets to the Canucks Open Practice this Saturday at 11:00 AM. The seats are in section 118, row 1 – that’s ice level next to the benches folks!
