For some of you, getting your report card was one of the most exciting times of the year. If your grades were good, maybe your parents would give you a little extra allowance to spend, or let you get that video game you wanted. For others, report card time was a tangled mess of gut-wrenching nervousness and oh my god Mr. Smith gave me a C- in English MY PARENTS ARE GOING TO KILL ME.
Either way, welcome to the Canucks Army Weekly Player Grades, where we'll take all that repressed childhood anxiety, bottle it back up, and apply it to your (presumably) favourite hockey team instead.

Vancouver entered Ottawa looking to make up for last night's 5-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs with a fast start and a better offensive showing. Well, that part went according to plan, as they took a 3-0 lead less than half way into the game. Unfortunately, thanks to penalties and some sloppy play, the road weary Canucks coughed up that lead to an also-road-weary Senators team to lose 4-3 in overtime.
Read past the jump for a recap of what was probably the worst defensive showing of the season from Vancouver.

Less than 24 hours after a disappointing loss to the hated Toronto Maple Leafs (stupid, stupid Cam Charron), Vancouver is back in action to take on the not-so-pesky-anymore Ottawa Senators. The Canucks are looking to get a win and ensure a better than 0.500 record on their extended Eastern road swing, while Ottawa is - perhaps foolishly - looking to stay out of the Connor McDavid sweepstakes. It's not exactly a marquee match up, but there are two points up for grabs and every point is going to matter by the time the season is over.

Death, taxes, and the Oilers never winning a game. Some things in life are certain, just like I'm certain that it's time once again for another edition of First Star, Worst Star.

Well, that was ugly. The Canucks were scored on early and often and in waves from the Leafs bottom-six forwards, and never recovered. It was a night to forget for Ryan Miller, who was pulled on the fourth goal of the night for the Leafs, that came on just the 14th shot he faced. Toronto would add another empty-netter to skate away with a 5-2 victory over the Canucks.
See how it all went down on the other side of the jump.
