Luongo has had an up-and-down season, particularly from a W-L standpoint. This victory pushes his 2016-17 campaign record to 16-14-6. James Reimer has been pushing him for starts lately, but this might help Luongo keep the backup netminder at bay. Feb 19 - 1:10 AM

Roberto Luongo "cramped up" in Wednesday's 6-5 overtime win over San Jose.

Coach Tom Rowe said that the veteran goalie is "fine," so he should be available to suit up against Anaheim on Friday night. The Panthers play again on Saturday, so Luongo and James Reimer will probably split the starts.
Feb 16 - 8:33 AM

As the Panthers beat the Sharks 6-5 Wednesday, Roberto Luongo sustained an apparent lower body injury in the final minute of regulation as he gave up a goal to Joe Pavelski.

James Reimer minded the crease for the final 38 seconds of regulation and for 2:16 of overtime. Luongo made his way off the ice under his own power, so the real damage during the night was hopefully just the five goals he gave up on 34 shots.

Despite winning Saturday night, Roberto Luongo has been struggling for the past month.

The veteran goalie stopped 26 shots in Florida's 7-4 win over Nashville Saturday night but with the four goals allowed Luogno has now let in 25 goals in his last seven starts. During that span Luongo's record is 2-4-1. Of his recent play, Luogno had this to say: "The bounces aren't there right now. Even though I felt good, felt sharp and on top of my game you look at the stat sheet and you give up four goals on 30 shots. It's not the most pleasurable thing but at the end of the day we got the two points". James Reimer has played well and could get a few more starts in the short term until Luongo regains his sharpness.

James Reimer got the nod instead and made 31 stops in a 2-1 overtime victory for the Panthers over Tampa Bay. It doesn't sound like the issue is something to worry about for Luongo because it was said that he could've played this weekend if the team had games scheduled. Florida hosts Ottawa on Tuesday after the All-Star break.
