Performance of the Week could’ve easily been given to former Canuck Roberto Luongo — and he’d no doubt deserve it — but I’ve already written about him — and he’s not really on this team anymore, so there’s also that.

Both the Vancouver Canucks and Calgary Flames entered Saturday’s game on some pretty heavy-duty losing streaks. The Canucks had lost 5 in a row, and the Flames had lost 7, so both teams, naturally, were looking to bounce back and get a much-needed W.

Selecting someone worthy of this honor is tricky because in the only two games they played, they lost 3-1 to the Montreal Canadiens on Tuesday and were embarrassed 5-1 to the Rangers on Saturday night on national TV. With only 2 goals in 2 games and 8 goals against, the Canucks’ defense was pretty much non-existent, and really, so was the offense.Click here to read more.
