Having throughly erased the third period of Friday night’s game from our collective memory, we’re back for a Sunday night game against the Blues. I suppose I'll be hoping for a solid 60-minute effort from the #Canucks… about the only thing missing from Friday night. — Clayton Corley (@opiatedsherpa) February 18, 2013

The Canucks look for a win against Dallas after a pedantic win over Minnesota. And back after a spell with Chris Golden & Victoria Pattison behind the CHB TGATT desk tonight, you know Lizz will be bringing here A game. Just like Aaron Freaking Rome: Henrik better not overshadow Rome's return — Taj (@taj1944) February 16, 2013
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!
Much has been made about the goaltending situation in Vancouver and rightfully so: right now the Canucks have two high-calibre netminders making up arguably the strongest tandem in the league. So with both Cory Schneider and Robert Luongo playing extremely well, it’s become a daily guessing game as to who will start in the next Canucks game. Likely tired of these daily questions, coach Alain Vigneault introduced his now famous coin – the one he flips to determine which goalie will get the start. It was humourous at the start but I hope he won’t be using the same line...
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.
As the Canucks rack up a few wins in a row, maybe their slow start wasn’t such a slow start after all. In this episode of CHB TV, Ed, Clay, Chris and Chris Palliser from 94.5 The Beat talk about the team’s best start since 2006, goal
cellys celebrations, Chris Tanev’s first career goal (an OT game-winner no less), and more.
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.
Have you ever wanted to skate alongside one of your hockey heroes? Well, now you have a chance to do just that.
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.
