Luongo in the Shootout

The 2nd game in a row where he kept the Canucks in it. Thankfully we're able to depend on one shootout goal, cause lord knows if we're even capable of scoring two.

Are there any other goalies that have totally changed in this department?

Here is what would have happened with old Luongo:

(How fitting that it was on Cory Schneider)




current Luongo

Oh good, I was beginning to think the main board was a little low on Canucks threads.

Too bad Kassian didn't score tonight.

On the flip side, there's Kovalchuk who went from being terrible in the shootouts to being practically automatic last season.

We need more luongo threads, he has handled the offseason, all the drama, perfectly.

And he has been nuts so far this year

Loosely relevant here, Patrick Sharp is a career 8/41 in shootouts

Why he continues to be the third shooter, I will never understand...

Lu was lucky tonight. It will be interesting how this goalie situation develops over the season.

Good problem to have if you're Vancouver. Loungo looked great

For the first time ever in Vancouver Luongo is playing without any pressure. And I think that definitely plays a part in his shootout improvement.

I think he's really enjoying the pressure being on Schneider to steal the spot. I expect him to have one of his best season's this year.
