we were 24th in goals for that year, but I guess that was Luongo's fault too right? And before you try and bring up goals against? we were 7th. Luongo was hardly the biggest reason we didn't make the playoffs that year.
Actually, we were tied for 22nd, but that's besides the point. Four more points would have got us in.
In the last 6 games, Luongo had a 4.59 GAA and .837 Save%. He had to be pulled 3 times.
It's true, that team was far from an offensive dynamo, and there are a number of reasons why we fell short of even making the playoffs. But down the stretch, when it was all on the line, reason #1 was #1.
