I dont see luongo sucking in that play, I see marchand being great. a perfect shot cannot be saved.
Ok so it's a great shot and Marchand was a great playoff performer. Van did have some quality chances but Boston as a team and Thomas as an individual was in their head. Had luongo played better the rest of the team sees it and they play better. Watching goals like that doesn't always inspire your team to go out and get it back. My whole point of view is that out of all the negative things van went through injuries or whatever having him let bad ones in at a bad time was the biggest reason they lost. Whether those goals were the result of a bad play or coverage he needs to make those saves.
