Roberto Luongo was reportedly injured in a 3-1 loss to the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday night.

Luongo's status was not immediately known. He was struck high by the leg of Kings captain Dustin Brown in the third period Saturday when Brown crashed the net to score. Luongo stayed down for several moments after the hit. "My foot got caught under me as he was accidentally running me over," Luongo told reporters after the game. "Luckily this time, the pain went away. It was a tough call. Hockey is a fast game and that's what we want to do to the opposing goalie too – crash the net and create havoc." Luongo, coming off a groin injury that forced him to miss the previous three games, made 46 saves in the loss. Eddie Lack started in net for Vancouver against the Ducks Sunday night, his 26th birthday, while the club brought in local netminder, Rob Laurie, on a professional tryout contract on an emergency basis.

He can be there for up to two weeks. That leaves Devan Dubnyk as Minnesota's likely starter and Niklas Backstrom as the backup.

Tyler Johnson (lower body) will be a game-time decision for Tuesday's game against Carolina.

He took part in Monday's practice, but coach Jon Cooper said he's still day-to-day. Johnson wasn't able to play in the All-Star Game because of a lower-body injury, but he's still eligible to play because he participated in All-Star weekend events.

Updating an earlier item, Kyle Okposo is projected to miss six-to-eight weeks with an upper-body injury.

That's a tough blow for the Islanders, as Okposo is the second on the team with 44 points in 46 games. He's formed an excellent tandem with John Tavares this season. Ryan Strome could be a candidate to replace Okposo on the top line.

Ryan Johansen was named the MVP in Sunday's NHL All-Star game.

Johansen and Team Foligno lost, 17-12. The Blue Jackets' forward had two goals and one assist in the game. Islanders' forward John Tavares (four goals) probably deserved the MVP award, but the event was in Columbus, and the fans on Twitter had the final say. Only Anze Kopitar (Kings) and Zemgus Girgensons (Sabres) were held pointless in the game. Steven Stamkos (Lightning), Patrick Kane (Blackhawks), Claude Giroux (Flyers) and Alex Ovechkin (Capitals) also had three points each for Team Foligno.
