The Game According to Twitter: Canucks 3 vs. Flames 2 (OT)

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. Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.

Performance of the Week: The No One Deserves This Edition

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.

Performance of the Week: Eddie Lack’s SO vs. the Penguins

This week’s performance of the week should come as no surprise because: a) well, Eddie Lack’s mom tweeted at him and it was adorable; and b) Eddie Lack notched his 5th career shutout last Thursday, a 22-save shutout against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Performance of the Week: Shawn Matthias

So, we know the Canucks shut out the Devils 2-0 last Tuesday. It wasn’t the most thrilling game, I think the pre-game ceremony for Pat Quinn took every ounce of emotion out of everyone (and rightfully so, because Pat Quinn, you guys), but the Canucks pulled off the big W — Burrows scored the GWG, but our pal Shawn Matthias scored with just over 5 minutes left in the third to double the score, and guess what that meant.

Performance of the Week: Jannik Hansen

Welcome to this week’s Performance of the Week — the weekly post formerly known as Player of the Week — same general idea, same cool blog, just a slightly different approach. It’s painfully obvious who gets this week’s nod — as if the title wasn’t any indication — but it’s wholeheartedly deserved because it’s not every day you get your first career hat trick, and that’s a cool and neat thing that happened to Jannik Hansen on Sunday night against the Chicago Blackhawks.
