Here are the winners of our Visa “Hockey Love Hurts” $75.00 gift cards!

Earlier this year we gave away a Visa gift card for Visa’s Hockey Love Hurts promotion. We asked you to send in questions for Alex Burrows of the Canucks and he answered them in this video.

The eventual winner of the contest was a Canucks fan from Vancouver. Her prize was was Game 2 of the Stanley Cup finals between the Canucks and Bruins and she talks about her experience in this video:

Our friends at Visa wanted to say thank you to our visitors by offering up another two $75.00 gift cards. These Visa gift cards work anywhere major credit cards are accepted. At the start of the Stanley Cup Finals we asked you to participate and we’re now happy to announce our winners!

Congratulations to our random winners: Erica Craig – @ericaleecraig on Twitter and Dilara L. who left a comment on the blog post!

Thanks to Visa for sharing their promotion with us and to all who participated!

Since the contest for Game 3 garnered  good attention. Congratulations to Armit Gill of Coquitlam in winning to viewing party seats to Game 3. I’d like extend it for Game 4.  There are a few Canucks that could be possible candidates for the Conn Smythe Trophy.  My choice right now? It would probably Alex Burrows. He’s tied with Daniel Sedin for goals in the playoffs, for the Canucks with nine.  He’s scored timely OT goals to win a series and to put the Canucks up two games to none in the Stanley Cup Final.

1.Post a comment on here as to who your candidate would be, and why?

Good Luck and Go Canucks Go!

Hockey Love Hurts: Win 1 of 2 $75 gift cards from Visa & CanucksCorner.com

Hockey Love HurtsHockey Love Hurts is not a phrase that Canucks fans are used to hearing, at least over the past season, but for Christiane B. from Richmond, BC and Alan D. from Vancouver (who now lives in Calgary), that phrase has paid off. They are the two grand prize winners of Visa’s Hockey Love Hurts sweepstakes; a program that celebrated the passion and loyalty of Canadian hockey fans through the ups and downs of their favourite hockey team. In the contest, Visa cardholders were invited to pledge allegiance to their favourite NHL team and received prizes and offers when their chosen team didn’t do so well in certain aspects of the season (when hockey love hurt the most!). The grand prize was any NHL fan’s ultimate dream – tickets to a Stanley Cup Final Game!

Now Christiane and Alan are set to go to Canucks home games in the next week and we will be hearing from Christiane on our blog in a special Q&A video about her love for our dear Canucks and how excited she is to attend the game this Saturday.

As part of this promotion earlier this year we gave away a Visa gift card when we asked you submit questions for the Vancouve Canucks Alex Burrows. Our friends at Visa know that not everyone can get to experience the Finals from the luxury of the arena, so they want to make sure that hockey love doesn’t hurt for the rest of us – in the next week, two of our CanucksCorner.com readers in Canada have the chance to win a $75 Visa Prepaid card!

For a chance to win one, here is what you have to do for a chance to win:

1) Post or RT this on Twitter (1 entry):

Hockey Love doesn’t have to hurt thanks to #Visa & CanucksCorner.com http://bit.ly/l3IBa9 #Canucks. RT for a chance to win a $75 gift card!

2) Leave a comment on this post telling us what you would spend your $75.00 on (1 entry).

We’ll follow up with a video and photos of the winner’s experience at Saturday’s game and announce the winners of the gift cards.

Good luck and GO CANUCKS GO!

The Canucks will send me all the names of the people that found my photo and I’ll combine them with the those that leave comments and links to their photos as well as those that tweet the above message to draw a random winner.

Here is the photo of my ugly mug that you’re trying to locate:
