Luongo has sucked, but the skaters have been just as bad or worse. Throw Schneider in and hope the Red Wings sit back.
Still, it'd be nice to see some progress in what has become the worst 2nd period team in the league (relative to their play the rest of the time). It's just a complete momentum killer which can be deadly in the playoffs. I don't think it's mere coincidence that pretty much every time the games got out of hand in the 2011 playoffs that it happened in the 2nd period.
All the Schneider fans are coming out of the woodwork to hang this on Luongo, after their guy had his feet held to the fire after two mediocre performances against Dallas. So predictable.
PK has been a back breaker with missed coverages and deflections up front. The Canucks manage only 2 shots the entire period and none on PP.
How did the refs not see the high stick on the disallowed goal? They shouldn't have had to phone Toronto on that. It just shows how bad the refs are tonight. Phantom penalties, missed calls, just terrible one-sided reffing. Detroit fans will cry about the other disallowed goal, but Luongo had possession so delayed penalty should be called. No Red Wings fans, the zebras have been entirely in your pockets tonight.
luongo having a terrible game? big deal, every goalie has em . hes been pretty bad ass this season so far, its just one game. the score doesn't matter as much as the goal differential. we're down by 2 goals,thats what we should be talking about. its not 5-0
