After being shut down by Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers on Thursday, the Vancouver Canucks will look to get back on track tonight on Hockey Night in Canada. And there's no better opponent to get back on track against than the Calgary Flames; a team that Vancouver has defeated 9 straight times overall, and 8 consecutive times in the friendly confines of Rogers Arena. Calgary will be looking to keep their grasp in the last wild card spot in the west though, so it's sure to be a good game.

The Comets Militia Weekly Report has returned as we look back at the weekly activities of our favourite AHL club, the Utica Comets. The results of the week were not as good as they have been so far this year, but the underlying process still remains positive. Ultimately that’s what we care about and preach here at Canucks Army; the sustainability of success due to the correct on-ice decisions over results in a small sample size. In the words of Alain Vigneault, "stick to the process."
So let's read past the jump to see what went down!

It's probably a horrible cliche to describe Roberto Luongo's return to Vancouver as "storybook" for the goalie, but that's really how the night was. The man who once helped lead the home squad to their most successful seasons ever gave a vintage Luongo performance, stopping 32 of 33 shots and earning first star of the night honours to the honest cheers of a road crowd. The Canucks 3-1 loss almost seemed secondary tonight as the Vancouver crowd finally received their chance to send Luongo off the way he deserved.
