Are you saying that from Game 5, where Luongo had a 31 save shutout, to Game 6, where he was pulled after allowing 3 goals in the first 10 minutes, that he wasn't doing bad, but all of Vancouver's players had an off-game at the same time? That's nothing short of ludicrous.

What about in the season prior, where in the Chicago series he had a 3 game sv% stretch of .818 to .967 to .857?

The year before that, he had another 3 game stretch of .903 to .839 to .958.

There are too many examples of Luongo completely changing from an elite goalie to a below-average goalie, then back to elite again for it to possibly be anyone's fault but himself, unless Vancouver has a pre-game meeting every night to roll a die to see how hard they play.
Stop talking out of your ass. Using 3 game samples to claim "inconsistency" is disingenuous at best.
Quick's SV% in the last 3 games of the 2012 finals: .944 .895 .913
Thomas' SV% in the last 3 playoff games he played .926 .923 .875
Lundqvist's stats in the last 3 playoff games he played: .897 .750 .897

They must suck just as much as Luongo does, eh? Wildly inconsistent! Mentally fragile!
And I'm not even cherry picking their worst "inconsistent" stretch like you did, simply the last 3 playoff games they played in.
