I'm hoping this quote from Gandalf the White will fly. I wanted something to do with the fact that the Canucks are in Denver playing the Avalanche, while I also wanted to make use of Bo Horvat playing the first NHL game of his career.

In the extended version of the Two Towers, Gandalf is saying that the Ents are waking up to find that they are strong, and that the arrival of Merry and Pippin to Fangorn Forest was like the pebbles that would start an avalanche. Since this is Bo's first game, let us hope this is the game that kicks off a great career for him as a Canuck.
