VANCOUVER, June 3, 2011 /CNW/ - The Green Men, the two super fans known as Force and Sully who root for the Vancouver Canucks, aim to spice up Hockey Night in Canada's upcoming broadcast with their antics. Today at a fan rally in downtown Vancouver, the Green Men announced they will be making the trip to Boston to watch their beloved Canucks play the Boston Bruins for Games Three and Four of the Stanley Cup finals - thanks to Travelzoo Inc. (NASDAQ: TZOO), a global Internet media company.

"In Vancouver and across Canada this spring the Canucks are the big story," says Sully. "We're going to help make Vancouver's hockey story a little bigger in Boston next week. Our goal is to get some rings on the Canucks' fingers and we're not going to sleep until that happens."

The Green Men have caught the nation's attention for their fun antics at Canucks games and have even spawned a whole group of imitators.

"I don't think we'll be honoured with a Key to the City, but we're thrilled to be traveling to Boston for both games and look forward to visiting - as only Green Men can," says Force. "Lots of people have offered us money but we can't justify taking any other fan's hard earned money. However, when Travelzoo asked us if we were interested in bringing the Green to Beantown, we were more than stoked."

"As well as being deal experts, the team at Travelzoo Canada are huge Canucks fans. So when we heard that The Green Men might need help getting to the final, we just had to help out and find a deal that would get them there to support Canada's team," said Lara Barlow, Country Manager for Travelzoo Canada. "Hockey and sports fans everywhere love to travel and support their teams abroad. So, it's a great fit for our brand."

In honour of the Vancouver Green Men, Travelzoo Canada will be giving out a phenomenal trip for two to anyone who is a member or signs up to be a member at Travelzoo.ca.
