THEN that SICK save off Smyth when it was 1-0. That was the turning point that woke the boys up. Nice to see a lucky bounce go our way (off Handzus' sliding stick) and find a wide open Daniel for the winner. That was one hell of a close series. Luongo made THREE series saving saves:
1) Game 1 in OT when he pulled the puck off the line
2) That save against Frolov on the breakaway which saved game 4
3) The save against Smyth, I don't care what anyone says - Smyth got good wood on that and it was only 15 feet or so away...the puck was wobbling a bit but it was hard enough that it should have been a sure goal. Insane.
Any lesser goalie and we could have lost that series in 4 or 5. Not taking anything away from the skaters in the final frame but that game was Lu's and his teammates mailed in the first 30 or so minutes.
Hopefully the skaters can build on this and be ready for round 2, we all know Lu is!
