Roberto Luongo allowed three goals on 28 shots in Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs.

The Panthers held 1-0 and 2-1 leads in this game, but they weren't able to bury the Maple Leafs at any point. The 37-year-old's record falls to 3-2-0 on the season. Luongo has dropped two of his last three games and now has a 2.20 goals-against-average and a .916 save percentage in 2016-17.

Roberto Luongo will play between the pipes in Toronto on Thursday.

In other words, there won't be a James Reimer versus his old team scenario this time, unless of course Luongo gets pulled. It's also kind of amusing because Luongo joked on Twitter that Reimer would get all of the starts against the Maple Leafs in light of Auston Matthews' four goal debut. We'll have to see if Luongo's words prove prophetic with Matthews having a big night against him.

Roberto Luongo blocked 26 shots Saturday night as the Florida Panthers beat the Colorado Avalanche 5-2.

Luongo bounced back from 4-2 loss to the Capitals Thursday night—a game in which he has a season low save percentage of .862. He was unable to come all the way back to the mark he set in the first two games; he posted a .958 against New Jersey and a .955 against Detroit. Still, he was fantasy relevant with Saturday night’s .929.

Roberto Luongo will face Colorado on Saturday night.

Luongo is off to a great start this season, allowing just six goals in three games and winning two of them. Depending on what you think of Florida's defense, you may still wish to find a more favorable matchup given tonight's loaded NHL schedule.

Roberto Luongo allowed four goals 29 shots in Florida's 4-2 loss to the Capitals.

The Panthers found themselves down 2-0 in the first period, but managed to fight back and tie the game heading into the final frame. In the last 20 minutes, Alex Ovechkin and Marcus Johansson both scored to give the Caps a 4-2 lead. The loss was Luongo's first of the season. His overall record falls to 2-1-0. He has a 1.98 goals-against-average and a .920 save percentage.

Roberto Luongo will get the start against Washington on Thursday night.

Two games, two total goals against, and two wins. Tough to dislike Bobby Lu's play thus far. It'd be fair to seek a more favorable matchup, as in, away from Alex Ovechkin & Co., but a hot goalie is always the best player in the game.

Roberto Luongo has been named the third star of the week.

He has opened the regular season with a 2-0-0 record, a 0.98 goals-against average and a .957 save percentage. Luongo surpassed Jacques Plante for sixth on the all-time win list with his 438th career victory on Saturday against Detroit.

Roberto Luongo is off to a great start this season.

He has stopped 44 of 46 shots and has won both of Florida's games. That gives Lou a 1.00 goals against average and a .957 save percentage. Needles to say, Luongo should be active in all fantasy formats. With the victory Saturday night, Luogno has passed Jacques Plante for sixth on the all-time wins list with 438. Next up is Terry Sawhuk with 447.
Oct 16 - 10:10 AM

Roberto Luongo is expected to get the start in Saturday's game against the Detroit Red Wings.

Luongo came up with a big performance in Florida's 2-1 OT win over New Jersey earlier this week. The 37-year-old had off-season hip surgery, but that doesn't appear to be an issue right now.
Oct 15 - 8:34 AM

Roberto Luongo allowed just one goal on 24 shots in Florida's 2-1 overtime win over the New Jersey Devils.

Luongo had no chance on the only goal he allowed, as a shot from the point was deflected in front of the net by Devils forward P.A. Parenteau. The veteran goaltender underwent hip surgery in the off-season, but appeared to be in fine form in his first appearance. He'll be a strong fantasy play whenever he's between the pipes, but with James Reimer as his backup, the Panthers could opt to give Luongo less work this season.

Roberto Luongo will be in net against New Jersey in Thursday's opener.

Welcome to one Luongo's last couple of opening night starts. That's right, the fourth overall pick in 1997 is already 37-years-old. At Luongo's ripe age he's still posting quality seasons, having produced a .921 save percentage and 2.35 across 61 games both of the last two seasons. Expect more of the same.
Oct 13 - 7:02 PM

It wouldn't be shocking if Roberto Luongo was a little tickled to get a win - exhibition game or not - against former crease partner Cory Schneider.

Luongo stopped 25 out of 27 shots to help Florida beat New Jersey in that tune-up. Few goalies are as dependable as the funny-tweeter, who may cede some starts to capable backup James Reimer in 2016-17.
Oct 8 - 11:38 PM

Roberto Luongo got back in the crease for Tuesday's preseason match against Nashville.

"Felt pretty good. Timing-wise and read-wise that's not where I want to be," Luongo said. "That wasn't the purpose of tonight. It was a matter of getting back into game action and making sure everything was working still. As far as that's concerned it's a good night. ... No effects after the game so that's a real positive." He allowed two goals on 14 shots, while playing just over half of the contest. Luongo healed much faster than expected after he underwent surgery to have his torn labrum repaired on May 3.

According to a source, Roberto Luongo has been cleared medically to play without limitations.

He should get an opportunity to test his hip during the preseason. Luongo's return to health probably means that Reto Berra will start the year in the minors, while James Reimer will serve as the backup. Panthers GM Tom Rowe said that the plan is for Reimer to start between 35 to 40 games in 2016-17 to keep Luongo fresh and healthy.
