Luongo in the Shootout
 
The 2nd game in a row where he kept the Canucks in it. Thankfully we're able to depend on one shootout goal, cause lord knows if we're even capable of scoring two.

Are there any other goalies that have totally changed in this department?

Here is what would have happened with old Luongo:

(How fitting that it was on Cory Schneider)




current Luongo

KEEROLE Vatanen 02-01-2013 11:50 PM

Don't see how the nucks can trade Loo now

Gustav Nyquist 02-01-2013 11:51 PM

The guy is crazy underrated around here.

Bruv 02-01-2013 11:52 PM

Luongo > that other Canucks goalie

Master Radishes 02-01-2013 11:52 PM

Oh good, I was beginning to think the main board was a little low on Canucks threads.

Too bad Kassian didn't score tonight.

On the flip side, there's Kovalchuk who went from being terrible in the shootouts to being practically automatic last season.

What are you asking?

Do you need an Aaron Paul avatar to post in here?

Well, I suppose I just did

You're automatically a better poster if Aaron Paul is in your avatar

Lucbourdon 02-01-2013 11:55 PM

We need more luongo threads, he has handled the offseason, all the drama, perfectly.

And he has been nuts so far this year

Chris Hansen 02-01-2013 11:56 PM

Loosely relevant here, Patrick Sharp is a career 8/41 in shootouts :facepalm:

Why he continues to be the third shooter, I will never understand...

Bourne Endeavor 02-01-2013 11:56 PM

I still cannot get over Lu owning Toews and especially Kane.

zytz 02-01-2013 11:56 PM

Soomeone should post a YT of his save against Kane in the SO... made me lol

GG Canucks, btw

Is he not 2 for 4 this season in the shootouts?

EmeticDonut 02-01-2013 11:57 PM

Lu was lucky tonight. It will be interesting how this goalie situation develops over the season.

DatsyukNBure* 02-01-2013 11:58 PM

good to see luongo doing good now. where are all the people that said trade luongo earlier?

Hnidy Hnight 02-01-2013 11:59 PM

Good problem to have if you're Vancouver. Loungo looked great

Todds Chiropractory 02-01-2013 11:59 PM

For the first time ever in Vancouver Luongo is playing without any pressure. And I think that definitely plays a part in his shootout improvement.

watch the games and not the statistics, he is a lot better in the S/O

and those are only bad attempts because he stopped them

KEEROLE Vatanen 02-02-2013 12:01 AM

I think he's really enjoying the pressure being on Schneider to steal the spot. I expect him to have one of his best season's this year.

yeah, we're playing for shootouts in OT and than proceed to put out 1 of Edler/D.Sedin

so far our only scorers have been Kassian and Schroeder
