For tonight's gamethread, we are doing something extra special. As many of you know, our blog likes to do some fundraising for special causes once or twice a year. Usually, it involves Sean donating a lump sum for each 1000 comments on that night's gamethread. Tonight, the Canucks are having their annual Canucks For Kids Telethon during the game. So, for every single comment on tonight's gamethread, Sean is donating 3 cents to the Canucks For Kids Fund Telethon. This works out to $15 for 500 comments, $30 for 1000 comments, and so forth.

Of course, the last time we did fundraising like this, I forgot to mention how you can donate your own money to the cause. For today, the Canucks wives, legends and friends will be manning the phone lines, taking donations from callers. To make a donation, you can call toll-free at 1-855-437-3863 (aka 1-85-KIDSFUND), or fill out the online form. We have already had one person declare that they will be matching Sean's 3 cents per comment tonight, and others are more than welcome to chip in as well. Remember, it's all for the kids.
