Vancouver, B.C. - As a continuation of the 50th season celebrations, the Vancouver Canucks released the skinny on 1970s night, the first of five era nights beginning on Tuesday Nov 5th vs the St Louis Blues. The team will look back at the players and stories from an era when bellbottoms were cool, smoking in the rink wasn't unusual and the brand of rock'em sock'em hockey was born.
Here is a detailed itinerary so fans will be hip to the jive in what promises to be a truly far out night. The boys are letting it all hang out, so fans won't want to miss their chance to reminisce about the days when mutton chops were the only head protection required for hockey players.
A limited number of tickets are still available at canucks.com/tickets. Be there or be square!
