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.

Player of the Week: Daniel Sedin

It’s a bit of a weird week because the Canucks only played twice in the last seven days, and in the last one they played last Friday, they were blown out 5-0 by the worst team in the Western Conference, the Arizona Coyotes. Seriously, the worst. So, unfortunately there isn’t a lot to draw from there, but we’ll always have Daniel Sedin’s glorious winner at 4:05 of overtime on November 11th against the Ottawa Senators.
