RD, I've been on Luongo for his bad play like Doc on Per's politics, and even I have to give him full credit for last night. He never quit on a puck, he made some good saves and he battled hard. He didn't appear shakey, he has simply seemed to have a bit of an issue freezing the puck this year. Credit where credit is due and all that.....

Luongo's biggest shortcoming other than his stickhandling ability has always been pucks in the crease and his inability to smother them.

In the Series against the Hawks in 2010 he was scored on countless times beacause he could not cover up loose pucks.

I think his biggest short coming is he lets in one or some times more, but usually one bad goal a game. Sure he is better than Hasek with the stick, but lets face it he does suck with the stick

Maybe that's why he hurls it to the ice three times a game.

Nope. It's because of the "one" bad goal..... :roll:

Kings lineup changes: Parse is out with a case of the Salos. Richardson is scratched, because duh…because…oh hell, there’s no reason. They could use his speed.

Trent Hunter joins the third line, while Colin Fraser will center Moreau and Lewis on the fourth. Maybe they assume that Canuck kryptonite is GRIT! I think it’s Timmy Thomas stopping 96.7% of shots in a series, but that’s me.

One request for the bottom six tonight: we don’t have to aim high, like shots or goals or anything. Just…don’t take penalties, guys. Can you all do that?

duh…

The Nucks scored 5 power play goals against the Blackhawks. Special teams better be ready tonight

I think he was spot on! :lol:
