I remember someone landing on his leg during the last game. I think it happened in the second period and he was able to finish the game so here's hoping it's nothing serious.

It was Alberts.

Argh.

Apparently it's nothing serious. He's still slated to play in the friday preseason finale, as expected.

He was pushed, though.

Luongo was pretty slow to get up, but commentators didn't mention anything.

Good news.

And xtr3m, yes, he was pushed by Parros if I'm not mistaken. Bad luck.

Doesn't sound too bad.

He probably was going to get the SJ game at home on Tuesday, but no big deal to sit him down and see how he feels. If he's fine for the Duck game on Friday, let him go, but if they really want to be safe, keep him out until the opener against LA.

Guess, that gives Schneider the start at home on Tuesday against SJ. Should see Lack against the Sharks the following night.

If Luongo can't go against the Ducks, we'll see Schneider for the finale as well.

We should still see a split up squad for the SJ games. I wouldn't expect any of the twins, Hamhuis, Edler, Kesler, etc. play both Shark games. You'll only see the AHL guys play both (ie. Sweatt boys, K-Conn, Oreskovich, etc. play both games). The Ducks game, we should see the full regular roster.

He finished the game so I doubt it's too serious. No need to rush it during the pre-season. Plus by the looks of Schneider last night, he could use the extra work.

So now the excuses are starting ahead of time... somehow the same defense wasn't an excuse for Luongo last year. Schneider needs to be better. Period.

Groin injuries are nothing to sneeze at for a goalie. Hopefully they're cautious as a groin injury can stay with a goalie all year.

Semantics but it sounds more like a "tweak" than a "strain". Nothing to worry about.

Does anything ever go right for this team? I know it's not serious, but Luongo was just playing stellar on Saturday.

Hopefully Schneider plays better for us than he did last night against the Oilers.

I'm not worried. Doesn't sound like it's anything serious. I just want Lou to make sure that he's not rushing it back. Starting off the season with a nagging groin tweak isn't worth it. Schneider is more than capable of handling a heavier workload if Luongo isn't 100%. There really is no point rushing it.

Though it sounds like it'll probably blow over as nothing given that he's still apparently slated to start later in the week.

Well, it's really none of our business, but I guess you could ask his wife.

You have to remember the word "strained". Unconditioned minor hockey goalies would routinely simply play through a strain and there is practically no chance it would get worse. Since Luongo is a professional of whom a lot of the team's fortunes rest, and it's the pre season....

Still, I'm sure Luongo plays through minor strains all the time. He's a goalie.
