The only difference is that the team in front of him, when they're on, can score more than any team he's ever played for so there's the perception that he doesn't steal games. Luongo's job is to give the team a chance to win every night and outside of about 3 of his last 35 games he's done it. Since Luongo returned from injury, the team is 17-0-0 when they score 3 or more goals. The problem is that the offense, while excellent, has tended to be inconsistent game to game.
The inconsistent offensive is due to lack of consistencey from the 3rd/4th lines, imo. The 1st and 2nd lines have been just fine, the 3rd and 4th lines have not produced enough (see Chicago and San Jose's 3rd/4th lines).
