The Vancouver Whitecaps of Major League Soccer are hosting the Los Angeles Galaxy a week from Saturday, so they ran a cool promotion during their NHL counterparts game versus the Kings on Monday night.
The idea was to give away a pair of free tickets to the MLS match versus Los Angeles to a lucky fan for each Canucks goal versus the Kings. The Canucks are 27th in the NHL in scoring with just an average of 2.61 goals per game. In hindsight, depending on one of the worst offensive teams in hockey to score goals in order to promote your upcoming game may not have been the best idea.
Our friends at the @Canucks play in LA tonight.. And we host LA Galaxy at home next Saturday, March 24... So, we're thinking it's the perfect time to do a ticket giveaway ???? Every time the #Canucks score a goal tonight, watch our feed for a chance to win a pair! #VWFC

Of course, Kings goaltender Jonathan Quick stopped all 35 Vancouver shots he saw to shutout the Canucks and prevent any tickets from being given away! In the end, the White Caps had their followers retweet a GIF of a trio of young Canucks fans to qualify to win some tickets.
