Roberto Luongo will make his 68th career playoff start Sunday night.

And it’s a crucial on as the Panthers trail in the series against the Islanders 3-2. Luongo sports a 2.24 GAA and .926 SV% in the series. He will need to be at his best in this one.
Apr 24 - 6:39 PM

Roberto Luongo will certainly get the start for Game 6 Sunday in Brooklyn.

This is a must-win contest for the Panthers as they trail the Islanders 3-2 in the series and there is no question that Florida coach Gerard Gallant will go with his starter. Luongo was brilliant in Friday's 2-1 double overtime loss stopping 40 of 42 shots.
Apr 23 - 8:41 AM

Roberto Luongo stopped 40 of 42 shots in Friday's 2-1 double overtime loss to the New York Islanders in Game 5.

Adam Quine beat Luongo with a power play goal at the 16:00 mark of the second overtime period to give the Islanders the win. The Panthers are now on the brink of elimination. Game 6 will be played in Brooklyn on Sunday. Luongo will enter Game 6 with a 2.62 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage this postseason.
Apr 23 - 12:41 AM

Roberto Luongo will be in net in Friday's Game 5 against the Islanders.

Only 11 pucks have beaten Luongo on 134 combined shots through the first four games of the series. While the Panthers need a better, more consistent effort in order to move on, he could use a bit more defensive support as well. Bobby Lu is the Panthers' backbone.
Apr 22 - 6:37 PM

Roberto Luongo made 26 saves in the Panthers' 2-1 triumph over the Islanders on Wednesday night.

The Panthers tied the best-of-seven, first-round series 2-2. Luongo has a postseason goals-against average of 2.62 and a save percentage of 9.18.
Apr 21 - 12:01 AM

Roberto Luongo will start Wednesday's game against the New York Islanders.

He owns a 3.13 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage in three games in Round 1 versus the Islanders. Luongo hasn't looked very good in Florida's losses in the series and they need a victory on Wednesday to go back home even with New York.
Apr 20 - 5:39 PM

Roberto Luongo said he needed the rest after playing three playoff games in four nights.

"Three games in four nights with an overtime, so I'm pretty exhausted right now," he said. "I need a couple of days to re-energize to get ready for Wednesday." The 37-year-old netminder will be back in the cage for Game 4 against the Islanders.
Apr 19 - 10:44 AM

Roberto Luongo allowed four goals on 39 shots in Sunday's 4-3 OT loss in Game 3 against the Islanders.

The Panthers will be frustrated that they let 1-0, 2-0 and 3-1 leads slip away. This was Luongo's third start in four nights and at times it showed. The 37-year-old will benefit from an extra day of rest, as Game 4 won't be played until Wednesday night. He'll enter Game 4 with an ugly 3.13 goals-against-average and a mediocre .907 save percentage this postseason.
Apr 18 - 12:07 AM

Confirming an earlier note, Roberto Luongo will indeed be in net against the Islanders on Sunday in Game 3.

Luongo has turned away 62 of 68 combined shots through the first two games, and will look to help lead his Panthers to a commanding 2-1 series lead tonight.
Apr 17 - 4:47 PM

There should be little doubt that Roberto Luongo will get the start Sunday in Game 3 against the Islanders.

Luongo silenced some critics after his Game 1, 5-goals allowed loss, by stopping 41 shots Friday to lead the Panthers to a 3-1 Game 2 victory. Although the Panthers will be heading to Brooklyn and a hostile crowd, we would feel confident starting Luongo based on his Game 2 performance.
Apr 16 - 10:18 AM

Roberto Luongo stopped 41 of 42 shots in Friday's 3-1 win over the New York Islanders.

That's more like it. Luongo wasn't very good in Thursday's 5-4 loss in Game 1, but he answered with a solid performance in Game 2. The win puts an end to Luongo's personal seven-game losing streak in the postseason. The 37-year-old has a 3.02 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage in the 2016 playoffs. The series is heading to Brooklyn tied at one.
Apr 15 - 10:45 PM

Roberto Luongo will play between the pipes in Game 2.

That was a bit of a question mark given that it will be Luongo's second game in as many days. Luongo and the Panthers will be looking to bounce back after he stopped 21 of 26 shots in a 5-4 loss Thursday night.
Apr 15 - 11:27 AM

Roberto Luongo was said to be getting an IV following Thursday's playoff defeat to the Islanders in Game 1.

It's believed to be part of his preparation for another start on Friday as the first-round series opens with games on back-to-back nights. Coach Gerard Gallent declined to confirm if the veteran goalie was starting again, but it's highly doubtful that we'll see a change in the crease unless there is an unknown issue. Luongo knows he has to be better after he surrendered five goals on 26 shots in a 5-4 loss on Thursday.
Apr 15 - 8:35 AM

Roberto Luongo had a Panthers playoff debut to forget on Thursday night, allowing five goals on 26 shots in the 5-4 loss to the Islanders.

Luongo has been solid this year, allowing five goals just twice during the regular season. Thursday just wasn't his night in a back-and-forth offensive affair with the Isles. The series continues on Friday night, so the 37-year-old veteran won't have much time to dwell on his poor performance.
