He did the best he could. Parise was at the right spot at the right time. It was the team's fault for not staying in their positions and scrambling around the ice. Don't forget, Luongo made a key glove save on Demitra to allow Canada to the gold medal game.
Didn't shut the door for Canada or it wouldn't have reached ot.
Did u watch the Nashville series. We shut them down as a team and the only way they were scoring was from behind the net. Solid goals lol
Lu is a regular season Allstar and a playoff bum. Seen it way to many times. Trade him while he's hot so we can actually get something for him and end this talk
Don't forget that huge blocker save on Sharp in OT minutes before Burrows potted the game winner. That was key. If Luongo didn't save that, our history would be completely different.
Luongo has a history of winning multiple key games single handedly.
Chicago Game 7 - biggest game to date in franchise history, his team craps the bed in front of him, Hossa gets a breakaway, Canucks score 2 goals in over 60 minutes of play and Luongo has to make 30+ saves of high quality.
San Jose series - Luongo gets shelled, something like 54 shots against and he holds us to OT when we only score off a lucky bounce.
Boston series - Vancouver not only scores just 8 goals in 7 games, but lets up an unbelievable number of odd-man rushes against Lu. If we had any other goalie, this would have been a sweep. Instead, he posts a couple of 1-0 shutouts where our team deserved to be beaten 4 or 5-1 on both nights, and keeps us in a 3-2 OT game.
This was when the game was still at 0-0.
