He definitely could have played even better, but that's a very adequate performance when you're playing for Team Canada.
Yeah, Luongo's performance was decent, but what I'm referring to is a goalie capable of stealing a game for us. Over the years, I've watched quite a few games where Canada loses, despite thoroughly outplaying, outchancing, and outshooting our opponents, saved only by spectacular displays of goaltending. Some examples include Martin Gerber for Switzerland in Canada's 2-0 loss in Torino and Ryan Miller for USA in Canada's 5-3 loss in Vancouver. Is it so much to ask that we have a poor outing (like our game against Team USA a couple days ago) and have a goalie steal a game for us? Just once?
