Luongo went down because he expected the shot to go through the pile of bodies but it hit Garrison's skate in front and bounced right to Brunner in the slot. The problem wasn't him going down, the problem is him not getting back up and getting over to Brunner. He chose the easier save selection and stuck his glove out instead. He probably expected Brunner to shoot right away but being the smart goal-scorer he is, Brunner held on a bit and roofed it.
Why is he going down if he expected a shot to go through? The butterfly covers the bottom of the net.
Agree about the easier save selection. But this is a tendency of Luongo when having to move side to side. Not a good goal.
