Goalie Roberto Luongo had another strong game Monday night but he and the Florida Panthers were defeated 4-1 by the visiting Minnesota Wild.
Luongo stopped 34 shots for the Panthers. This after a 48-save performance against Nashville. The Panthers lost that one 3-2. In 16 games this season, Luongo is 6-5-5. He has a goals-against average of 2.40 and a save percentage of .926. His fantasy value is pretty well what you'd expect. He's solid, if not consistently spectacular, and not always dominating opponents. He'd be a better fantasy option, naturally, with a better team. Nov 24 - 11:30 PM

Roberto Luongo said his 48-save performance against Nashville is "the type of game [he] enjoys."

"It’s the type of game I enjoy," Luongo said. "They were just throwing pucks from everywhere. I was able to get in the game early, get a good feeling going, and unfortunately both their goals were not really shots on net. Both deflected off our guys, but we battled in the last minute to tie it up, which was huge for us." The Panthers lost the game 3-2 in a shootout. It's a good thing Luongo likes the heavy workload because Florida is a young team and there's a good chance they surrender a high number of shots a few more times this season.

Roberto Luongo stood tall for the Panthers, who fell 3-2 in the shootout to the Predators, despite his 48 saves.

Good thing the Panthers have a day off before their next game. Luongo was pretty much hung out to dry in this game. These types of performances — somehow getting points after being outplayed — are why the Panthers went out and acquired him last year. He has a 2.36 goals-against average and .926 save percentage. Luongo has rewarded those unfazed by the type of team he could play on this season.

Roberto Luongo will be in goal when the Panthers face off against the Predators Saturday night.

And why shouldn't he be? The 35-year-old, who is coming off a 28-save 3-2 overtime win against the Sharks, is having a bounceback season in southern Florida with a 2.40 GAA and .922 SP.

Roberto Luongo made 28 saves on 30 shots in Florida's 3-2 shootout win over San Jose.

The Panthers are now 2-1-0 on their tough west coast road trip. Luongo also stopped two of three shooters in the shootout. The 35-year-old is 6-4-4 with a 2.40 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage. His fantasy upside is limited because the Panthers probably won't win many games this season. He was named the game's third star.

Roberto Luongo was pulled after two periods in the Panthers 5-2 loss to the LA Kings on Tuesday.

The flood gates opened in the second period as the Kings scored four straight to chase Luongo. Al Montoya came in to finish off the game in the third period for the Panthers. Luongo now holds a 5-4-4 record to go with 2.45 goals against average and .921 save percentage in 13 starts thus far. Looking ahead, Florida has two tough remaining games against San Jose and Nashville remaining on this Western road trip.

Roberto Luongo made 31 saves in Florida's 4-3 shootout loss to the New York Islanders.

Luongo also allowed two goals on three shootout attempts. The Panthers' goalie was named the game's second star behind Islanders' forward Kyle Okposo. Florida doesn't have a ton of talent on their roster, but Luongo has masked some of their deficiencies. The 35-year-old has a record of 5-3-4 with a 2.24 goals-against-average and a .927 save percentage.

Roberto Luongo enjoyed a relatively quiet night in goal for the Panthers as they scored a 4-1 win over the visiting Sharks Tuesday night.

The veteran goalkeeper faced just 22 shots, stopping 21 of them, in the win which was his first since a 2-1 victory over the Flyers on November 1st. His record climbs to 5-3-3 while his GAA stands at 2.18 and his save percentage is .927. Those are pretty solid numbers considering when he was drafted in most leagues.

Look for Roberto Luongo to get the start Satuday afternoon against the Flames.

The game starts at 3:00 pm EST so make sure you have Luongo active before then. Luongo is coming off a 4-1 loss to Philly in which he stopped 26 shots. However prior to that, he did not allow more than three goals in seven consecutive games.
Nov 8 - 10:22 AM

Roberto Luongo stopped 26 of the 30 shots he faced in Thursday's 4-1 defeat against Philadelphia.

After a terrible start where he allowed eight goals in the Panthers' first two games, Luongo settled down and went seven straight games without allowing more than three goals. That streak was snapped on Thursday, dropping the vet's record to 4-3-3 with a 2.31 goals against average and .925 save percentage.
Nov 6 - 10:13 PM

Roberto Luongo played well enough to win, but was saddled with a loss in Tuesday's 2-1 overtime loss to the Bruins.

Bobby Lu blocked 23 of the 25 shots he faced on the night, but it wasn't enough to earn him a victory as his teammates only managed to slip one puck past his counterpart, Tuukka Rask. The loss extends Luongo's streak without a regulation defeat to six games, but drops his record to 4-2-3 on the year. His GAA is 2.12 while his save percentage is .932.
Nov 4 - 9:50 PM

Roberto Luongo blocked 36 shots in the Panthers’ 2-1 win over the Flyers on Saturday night.

Luongo stood tall for most of the night, giving up the goal with eight seconds left in the contest. He has helped the Panthers earn a point in five straight games (six overall), with four wins in that span. Luongo has been impressive thus far, with a 2.15 goals-against average and .933 save percentage.

He is coming off an impressive 2-1 win over the Coyotes Thursday night in which he stopped 32 of 33 shots and was the game's first star.
Nov 1 - 10:35 AM

Roberto Luongo has allowed just four even-strength goals this season.

That represents a league low among goalies who has played as many as seven games. However, it's been a different story for him when the opposition has a power play. He's allowed 11 power-play goals this campaign, which ties New Jersey's Cory Schneider for the most in the league. The Panthers need to sort out their 28th ranked penalty kill.
