All it took was one game of puck shuffle, one bouquet of Doritos and one big question near Section 103 of Rogers Arena and we have some newly-engaged Vancouver Canucks fans.

Amanda Mussio, with a little help from her favorite team, proposed to boyfriend Brandon Haubrich on Thursday. And of course, he said yes.

Haubrich was chosen, at random, he must have thought, to participate in the Canucks Puck Shuffle game with the chance to win a "mystery prize."

When the game played out and he made his guess, the words "Will you marry me?" slid out from under the puck.

Haubrich turned around to find a kneeling Mussio holding a bouquet of Doritos fashioned into roses. The couple smooched in front of the cheering crowd.

"I had no idea," Haubrich said. "I was very shocked and surprised. I'm still taking some time to catch my breath. I knew we were coming to the game but I had no idea anything like this was going to happen."

Mussio had her own butterflies as well.

"Yeah (I was nervous) just a little bit, waiting," she said. "I had to hide behind the curtain so I didn't really get to see what was going on at first. I just wanted to go!"

But all's well that ends well.

"He was a little bit more excited than I expected him to be, which is awesome, obviously," Mussio said. "Right in the moment, it just flowed properly and it was perfect."
