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.
Yeah, completely agreed. I just don't get it. What is it about this team and 2nd period meltdowns?
Exactly? From what I saw, the shot was low and that's why it bounced off Garrison's leg/skate, so he went down into butterfly. If Garrison wasn't there, that's a pad save.
Luongo has been fine. No game-savers tonight but not many he can be totally faulted on without first blaming the bad PK.
Disagree. He has not been "fine".
The PK has been bad, but Luongo hasn't helped.
On the 5th goal against, I'm not talking about him initially going down into the butterfly, I'm talking about him going down right after that, right after it bounced off Garrison's skate. He couldn't track the puck so his answer was to flop and it was the wrong call.
