Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini shows off his fandom with live tweets

Elias Pettersson had two goals and three assists to lead the Canucks to a 7-6 overtime win over the Avalanche.

On Friday afternoon Vancouver Canucks owner Francesco Aquilini sent out a curious tweet about his intention to live tweet his team’s home matchup against the visiting Colorado Avalanche.

True to his word, Aquilini did just that during the game, sharing some of his thoughts on the Canucks, as well as his experience with Jazzy B at the game. Here were some of the highlights:

The game begins

Elias Pettersson’s big boss really likes him

Jazzy B visits
For those unaware, Jaswinder Singh Bains, better known as ‘Jazzy B,’ is a Punjabi Bhangra singer-songwriter who grew up in B.C.

The Punjabi star was at Rogers Arena as part of Friday evening’s South Asian heritage festivities.

The second period was kinda nuts

The third period even more so

Mr. Aquilini’s a true fan of his team

Canucks win in overtime!
