Performance of the Week: Ronalds Kenins

We need to talk about Kenins. Because, well, who isn’t these days.

Ever since 23-year-old Ronalds Kenins made his NHL debut with the Canucks on January 29th, he’s been a force to be reckoned with, recording 7 points (3 goals and 4 assists) in 11 games. Oh, and he’s also dished out 24 hits, which already places him 10th among Canucks forwards despite playing about 40 games less than the regulars.

Performance of the Week: Zack Kassian’s Redemption

I’ll be the first to admit I’ve struggled to stay on board the Zack Kassian bandwagon. I don’t even consider myself on it, but I know when to give credit when credit is due.

Performance of the Week: The Buffalo Sabres

The entire Buffalo Sabres’ team gets my pick for Performance of the Week because, while the Canucks won against them 5-2 last Friday, their performance as a whole is much more noteworthy.

Games I’m Looking Forward to in the Second Half of the Season

Now that we’ve officially launched into the second half of the season, the playoff race is getting tighter, every game is starting to mean more and, unlike an episode of Whose Line is it Anyway, the points do matter.

Performance of the Week: Frank Corrado’s season debut

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. I’m giving it to Frank Corrado this week, who was called up for the third time this season for Saturday’s buzzkill snoozefest against the Flames.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 0 vs. Flames 1

After an emotional game against Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers on Thursday night, the Canucks were looking to bounce back against the Calgary Flames on Saturday night, something they seem to do often enough. (I mean, the Flames are like the Canucks’ safety blanket.) Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.

Luongo’s bitter-suite return

It’s hard to prepare yourself for the kind of night Thursday’s Luongo Night was. You know it’s going to be raw and emotional, seeing your former number one goaltender between the pipes at the other end of the rink.

Performance of the Week: Henrik Sedin scores milestone goal numbers 200 and 201

It’s no word of a lie when I say that I adore Henrik Sedin more than most people. (I’m also weirdly protective of someone I’ve never even met, but come on, he’s Henrik Sedin, okay?) Seeing him reach milestone goals 200 and 201 on the same night is pretty spectacular.

The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 4 vs. Red Wings 1

After their first loss of the calendar year against the Los Angeles Kings on New Year’s Day, the Canucks were look to bounce back against the Detroit Red Wings (although they’ve been winless in their last 3 outings against them). Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.

Performance of the Week: Alex Burrows’ two goals against the Arizona Coyotes

In a week in which the Canucks played just two games before the Christmas break, it was easy to select the Performance of the Week. As the Canucks trounced the Arizona Coyotes 7-1 in their last game before getting their eggnog on, Alex Burrows notched two goals, ending his 9-game goalless drought in a big way.
