In a grudge match of sorts, the Canucks host the Los Angeles Kings for the first time since the Kings eliminated them in the first round of last year’s playoffs. Opened a beer. Now THIS is a game. THIS I've missed. #playlikewinners #playlikechampions #TGATT @canucksgame — Arielle Tuliao (@ajtuliao) March 3, 2013 Hockey, check. Beer, check. Here we go.
It’s an early game in Detroit today. Luckily NASCAR finished on time, so there were no TV conflicts in my house. None of the duct taped cars won, so I was pretty disappointed.
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 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.
