The Green Men, a.k.a. Force and Sully, returned to the Rogers Arena for Thursday night's Vancouver Canucks game against the Edmonton Oilers, and they came especially prepared for Oilers left winger Taylor Hall.
When Hall received a hooking penalty halfway through the first period, the Green Men played a game of "Pin the Tail On the Donkey", holding a picture of a donkey with Hall's face on it.
Force and Sully also paid tribute to Canucks great Pavel Bure, who was in attendance and received a long standing ovation from the fans before the game.

Ryan Kesler could play tonight?!
The OFFICIAL Vancouver Canucks twitter account just tweeted that all Canucks players are currently on the ice today except Chris Tanev.
Speculation is running rampant now that Kesler looks good out there, and it begs the question, could he play tonight?
Kes of course has been out for a while. He played in seven games, then went back on the IR...

Hockey Night in Canada Vancouver Hosts Calgary
A 7pm start at Rogers Arena on Saturday night against a reeling Flames team. Sounds like the perfect recipe for a fragile Canucks team looking to make the push towards the Stanley Cup Playoffs.
The Nucks 4-0 win against the Oilers on Thursday moved Van City back into first place in the Northwest Division.
Phoenix Coyotes (17-15-6) at Vancouver Canucks (21-11-6) Preview
With eight wins in their last 10 games (8-2-0), the Vancouver Canucks are strengthening their hold on the Northwest Division. After a relatively quiet March (22 combined points in 16 games), brothers Daniel and Henrik Sedin are enjoying a solid start to April, combining for nine points in three games.
The Canucks' top line combined for eight points, and Cory Schneider made 36 saves as Vancouver beat the reeling Calgary Flames 5-2 on Saturday night.
Henrik Sedin scored an empty-net goal and earned career NHL assists No. 600 and 601, Daniel Sedin added three assists, and Alex Burrows scored and had an assist to pace Vancouver (21-11-6), which has won eight of 10.
The Vancouver Canucks are making a strong push for a fifth consecutive Northwest Division title. They'll try to continue it in a matchup with the surging Phoenix Coyotes, who are just outside the Western Conference playoff picture.
Vancouver goes for a season-high sixth consecutive home win while the Coyotes look to extend their best run of the season to four victories Monday...
Despite the Calgary Flames' dismal play on the road, the Vancouver Canucks won't take anything for granted.
With at least two key players possibly ready to return from injuries, the Northwest Division-leading Canucks look to match a season high with their fifth straight home win while trying to extend the longest road slide in Flames' history Saturday night.

The Vancouver Canucks look to keep things rolling tonight against the Calgary Flames. This is a game that Vancouver should win, as they are playing better than the Flames lately and are the more rested team. However, you can never count on anything with this Canucks club as they have a tendency...
