Chicago 1 .879 3.51
Anaheim .930 2.31

The Boston series shows exactly what I'm talking about. He was amazing in 3 games.

he was a big part of the losses in the other 4.

You also have games like the 7-5 loss to Chicago. Team scores him 5 goals, comes back in the third. He simply can't get it done.

Luongo is just unreliable come playoff time. The Canucks have another option in Schneider. If they didn't then absolutely keep Luongo, he is capable of winning a conn smythe if he can ever get it together.
How was Lundqvist during the Devil's series? Or Elliot against the kings? Bryzgalov and Fleury both did terribly against each other.

All goalies have bad series. It's not something unique to Luongo.
