Roberto Luongo still isn't over the fact that the Florida Panthers missed the playoffs in 2017-18.
The Panthers dug themselves into a hole early, but they managed to make things interesting late. In the end, they missed the postseason by one point and that stings for the veteran goaltender. But now that the Stanley Cup Playoffs are over, he can start getting over it. "Until hockey’s off TV, it’s tough to start focusing on the next year," Luongo said. "Obviously, the emotions start to go away as time goes by. But for me personally, it’s always been about once the season is over as far as the Stanley Cup Final is when I can start moving on. And everybody’s back on the same page and working for the next season." Jun 9 - 8:28 AM
