The two events are completely different in every way except a good goalie allowed a lot of goals.
I hope Luongo feels a bit embarrassed after letting in 8 too. The point is, why the hell would they leave him in for 8 goals against?

Certainly helps placate fans who may be getting unsure about their plan to trade him if they let his stats take a nosedive....

I haven't seen any post game stuff or reaction in why he was left in, its just strange, especially since they didn't play yesterday or tomorrow. Even if it wasn't Luongo's fault, teams would usually pull him for mercy reasons (and why Roy was so pissed off in his famous last game for the Habs)
