Stanley With Lanny
Used with Permission from Scotia Hockey.

The trip includes spending money, accommodation, transportation to the the game, and 3 whole periods of hockey alongside Lanny. Official rules are available on the Scotia Hockey Facebook Page.

Reebok Stanley prize packs (1)Once a week during the playoffs, and once a day from May 23rd to June 10th, they’ll also be giving away Reebok Stanley Cup prize packs.

I know that most Vancouver fans are hockey fans through and through and they’ll continue to support hometown boys, past Vancouver players, and perhaps cheer for the opponents of our bitter rivals throughout the rest of the playoffs. Catching a few of the other Round 1 match-ups, the playoffs are sure to contain great hockey and be exciting as ever to watch.

To promote See Stanley With Lanny, I have two Scotia Hockey prize packs to give away as well as three of the Reebok Stanley Cup prize packs that include a Stanley Cup Final t-shirt, hat, backpack, and hoodie. Here’s how you can enter to win one of these five prize packs from me:

  • Leave a comment on this post about why you love hockey, plain and simple (1 entry)
  • Post the following on Twitter (1 entry)
RT to enter to win a @ScotiaHockey prize pack from @Miss604

I will draw all five winners at random from all entries at 12:00pm on Tuesday, May 1, 2012. Update The winners are Michelle M and @Reese210 (Scotia Prize), and Vince, Iris, and Jenny (Reebok).

    I love hockey because it is the best game in the world.

  2. VickyMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 10:45am PDT

    I love hockey! Raised in Sudbury, Ontario I grew up watching the Sudbury Wolves and cheered them on until I moved out West. I work at Rogers Arena for 16 years now, having the series end so suddenly makes me sad but I look forward to seeing how the playoffs pan out and would love the chance to see the finals with Lanny MacDonald, my dad’s hero!! I still love the Canucks…there’s always next year!

  3. NikkiMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 10:50am PDT

    Cause I’m Canadian – it’s our sport!! 🙂

  4. FemiMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 10:50am PDT

    I grew up playing hockey. It’s in my blood. When I watch the players skate, it’s as if I am there skating. I feel their pain and exhileration. I’m the 6th man on the line–the fan. I play just as hard and train just as hard.

    Why do I love hockey? Because I am hockey. I am a fan.

  7. Eric BulmashMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 11:26am PDT

    Love the smell of the ice and going top shelf peanut butter over a goalie’s shoulder!

    I love hockey because it isn’t the same game twice, because you can enjoy a New West Bruins game or a Giants or a Canucks game equally as much.

  24. CGMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 2:52pm PDT

    Canucks fans right now are undeniably saying that hockey love hurts…. but it’s unconditional. Hockey brings us all together, we love our team, we had an incredible season. We should be thankful, and hopeful for next season.

  32. yvr loverMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 3:53pm PDT

    I love hockey becuase it defines us as Canadians, reflects our environment and our sense of camarderie. It doesn’t need a rink, jerseys or $100 ticket prices – just a whole lotta heart!

  33. JeremyMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 4:04pm PDT

    Hockey is a Canadian sport, I’ve grown up with it and will always love watching it!

  34. JenMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 4:05pm PDT

    Hockey was always played on the streets in our neighbourhood growing up and always watched hockey night in Canada. It’s pretty much the only sport I’ll watch on tv!

  37. Vanessa WMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 4:24pm PDT

  38. MichaelMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 4:29pm PDT

  39. Elizabeth BMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 4:40pm PDT

    I love hockey because it reminds me of watching Hockey Night In Canada when I was a teenager in the 70’s (shhhhhhh) with my family.

  40. TonyMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 5:22pm PDT

    I love the combination of speed, skill, and physicality, and to do all of this on ice is truely amazing. That’s why I love Hockey.

  44. stacey dempseyMonday, April 23rd, 2012 — 7:08pm PDT

    I love hockey as it is something I can enjoy with my 3 teenagers, so fun to cheer on the canucks together

    Hockey was a big deal in my house! Growing up with Towel Power, King Richard, Stan Smyl, Tiger Williams on my TV. I also played floor hockey for 8 years! Even though I can’t ice skate… I still love the sport! Canucks until the day I die!

  64. VaniaTuesday, April 24th, 2012 — 11:10am PDT

    Born and raised in a tropical country, I moved to Canada in Jan 2010, previous to all the excitement about Olympic Games… and that’s when I got hooked with hockey!!! I can’t stand sitting for 90 minutes anymore to watch soccer, the most popular sport in my homecountry. Hockey all the way!

  65. @Tim604Tuesday, April 24th, 2012 — 11:11am PDT

    I love hockey because it brings people together, it’s an excuse to yell at the TV, and it’s truly Canadian.

  66. Ann MailhotTuesday, April 24th, 2012 — 11:16am PDT

    I grew up loving hockey. One of my earliest memories as a kid was wacthing my gramma watch the leafs and habs play (grew up back east) and wondering “what is she watching that gets her so riled up?!?! I soon found out,and quickly became a fan myself. Am now a huge canucks fan, but will continue to watch the playoffs even though they’re out, because playoffs produce some of the best hockey played all year.

    I love hockey because of the thrill, the excitement and the feeling of hope it provides me. Maybe that sounds strange, but after a particularly hopeless time at work, watching the team go on such a great run last season was the best therapy for me. I love the game and I love the team and everyone on it.
