Roberto Luongo and the Panthers outlasted Washington Tuesday night in the longest shootout in NHL history.

Lounge turned aside 23 of 24 shots through regulation and overtime and followed-up that performance by denying the Capitals on 15 of 20 shootout attempts. He definitely earned his 11th win of the season and brings his record to 11-6-6 in the process.

Roberto Luongo will start Tuesday night against the Washington Capitals.

The Panthers come in amid a three-way tie with the Boston Bruins and second Wild Card slot-owning New York Rangers with 32 points in the standings. Problem is that the Cats own the fewest ROW with 10 to their opponent's 13. A win is a win, but one in regulation or overtime would be doubly-clutch.

Roberto Luongo stopped 29 of 31 shots in Florida's 3-2 shootout win over Detroit.

The 35-year-old has been solid for the Panthers this season. Luongo was beat twice in the first period, but was perfect the rest of the way (including the shootout). Luongo is now 10-6-6 to go along with a 2.37 goals-against-average and a .924 save percentage. He was the game's second star.

Roberto Luongo will get the nod against Detroit on Friday night.

In 31 career starts against Detroit, Luongo has won just 12 times. But wait, there's more. He has just two wins against six starts as a Panther. One of which, and the only one since returning to Florida, was ten days ago on December 2nd where he stopped 38-41 in victory.
Dec 12 - 6:03 PM

Roberto Luongo made 24 saves in the Florida Panthers' 4-2 loss to the Blues in St. Louis Monday night.

The loss gave the veteran goalie a 9-6-6 record for this season. His goals-against average is 2.40 and his save percentage is .923. With a so-so team such as the Panthers, Luongo is doing quite well. He'd be a better fantasy goalie if he were with a better team, but his numbers aren't bad at all and, if you have him in your league, we suggest you hang on to him. Keep in mind that the Panthers may be improving, too.

Dec 6 - 5:34 PM

We would be shocked if Roberto Luongo was not the starter Saturday night against the Sabres.

Roberto Luongo is likely to start on Tuesday after recovering from his upper-body injury.

Al Montoya played in Monday's 2-1 loss go Columbus and Luongo, who felt ready to start if called upon, backed him up. Luongo got better quickly after missing Wednesday's match versus Carolina.
