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.
Looking to forget their rare loss against the Toronto Maple Leafs on Saturday night, the Vancouver Canucks play game 6 of their 7-game road trip in Ottawa against the Senators. Jocelyn Aspa recaps the game in your tweets.
Shawn Matthias didn’t finish last night’s game versus the Toronto Maple Leafs, thanks to an elbow to the head from Leafs defenseman, Stephane Robidas. Personally, this looks like a textbook high hit with an elbow. Robidas leads with his elbow and hits Matthias in the chin area.

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.

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.
