Against Boston in 2011, Luongo was one of the only players to actually show up. It also didn't help that his entire defense was badly injured.

Against Chicago in 2011 Luongo played well, but in the middle of the series he struggled a bit, as did the entire team. The team in front of him was so bad that people on here were talking about a lockerroom wide flu.

Against Chicago in 2010, Luongo was average. I do stress his ES SVP rank amongst goalies who made it past round 1 though, as you couldn't get better than Luongo in those playoffs.

In 2009 Luongo struggled against Chicago, and was the reason we lost in game 6.

In 2006 Luongo was the only reason we got past Dallas. He was also the only reason we didn't get swept by Anaheim, and actually gave us a chance to win.

In 2009 Luongo was great against St. Louis.

In 2010 Luongo played well against LA, but again I stress how poor our PK was.

In 2011 Luongo played excellent against Nashville and San Jose.

In 2012 Luongo was the only player to show up in games 1 and 2 against LA.
