This is Luongo's time... many great players (Yzerman, Manning, Nadal, Elway etc...) have faced these moments and grabbed the chance to define themselves. Others (Marino, Kelly, Norman) have failed and have forever been seen as losers.

He's been one of the best, if not the best regular season goalie in the world throughout his career... now he needs to make it happen against his most feared/problematic opponent.

The good news, the Canucks have found their game again and all he needs to do is make that critical save and control his rebounds. Be your idol (Grant Fuhr) on Tuesday night Roberto... that's all you need to do to instantly erase 4 years of playoff futility....

No pressure...

Other than that, the team needs to bring the same game they brought in game 6 and FINISH their chances. No more posts or high shots... hit the net, crash the net, force Crawford to make saves and give up rebounds.

Everything is on the line...

Here's hoping we cross first.
