Florida general manager Dale Tallon is confident that he can bring key players to the Panthers in the off-season partly because he acquired established goalie Roberto Luongo during the season.
With a top-end goalie like Luongo as a key selling point, Tallon is confident players will want to come south and help put the Panthers back on track. "You sell winning, the desire to win,’’ Tallon said. "We now have the ability to put the pieces together, and that’s what players want. . .I was denied for two years in Chicago. We were an Original Six team, great city. No one wanted to come because the perception was we didn’t want to win. That perception has gone away, and it has gone away here. We’re going to get guys who want to win.’’ Apr 15 - 10:45 AM

The Florida Panthers ended their abysmal regular season Saturday night with another loss but their goalie stood out.

Luongo steered aside 35 Columbus shots in the Panthers 3-2 loss in Florida. Luongo winds up his season with a 25-23-7 record, a 2.40 GAA and a .919 save percentage. The Panthers, of course, are going nowhere in the NHL's post-season except to the golf course. They have finished out of the playoffs 12 times in the past 13 seasons.

Roberto Luongo will start in goal Saturday night against the Blue Jackets.

It is a nothing game for the Panthers, who wind up a dismal 2013-14 campaign but the game means quite a bit to the Blue Jackets who could finish as high as sixth in the Eastern Conference with a win and Philadelphia and Detroit losses. It will be interesting to see if Luongo is in full spoiler mode Saturday night.
Apr 12 - 10:30 AM

Roberto Luongo was solid between the pipes for Florida on Thursday as they defeated the Maple Leafs by a score of 4-2.

The fact he was facing a deflated Toronto club certainly didn't hurt, but the former Canuck deserves full marks for his performance. He turned away 27 of 29 shots en route to improving his record to 25-22-7, including a 6-6-1 mark with Florida. His GAA is 2.44 while his save percentage is .919.
Apr 10 - 11:55 PM

Roberto Luongo will be back in goal on Thursday night after he missed one game with an upper-body ailment.

Dan Ellis isn't feeling well so Scott Clemmensen will serve as Florida's backup netminder against Toronto. Luongo has five wins, a .923 save percentage and a 2.45 goals-against average in 12 appearances with the Panthers this season.
Apr 10 - 11:39 AM

Roberto Luongo (upper body) hopes to be back in goal for Thursday's game against Toronto.

"We'll take morning skate [Thursday] and see where it goes," he said after practicing on Wednesday. "Hopefully, I'll be back in." He missed Tuesday's scheduled start against Philadelphia after he felt sore in the warmup. If Luongo isn't ready to go then Dan Ellis will start again in his place.
Apr 10 - 10:23 AM

Roberto Luongo didn't play Tuesday after he suffered an upper-body injury in morning skate.

Interim coach Peter Horachek said Luongo would've played had the game meant something and that the team's number one goaltender was held out because of "general upper-body soreness." Dan Ellis ended up starting instead. The Panthers play two more games before their season comes to close and it's unclear if Luongo will play in either of them. Consider him day-to-day for now.
Apr 9 - 8:14 AM

Roberto Luongo is expected to start Tuesday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

It will be Luongo's third straight start since returning from a neck/head injury. He has a 2.40 GAA and .919 save percentage in 54 games in 2013-14.
Apr 8 - 2:21 PM

The Dallas Stars needed this game on Sunday, but Roberto Luongo and the Florida Panthers pulled out a 3-2 win.

Luongo breaks a two-game winning streak, improving his overall season record to 24-22-7 after stopping 35 out of 37 shots.
Apr 6 - 8:09 PM

Roberto Luongo will get the start against Dallas Sunday afternoon.

He is coming off a 2-1 loss Friday night in which he stopped only 17 shots. The Stars are still in the playoff hunt so this will not be an easy game for Luongo.
Apr 6 - 9:26 AM

Luongo was playing in his 800th career game on Friday.

It was also Luongo's 35th birthday. Despite it having all the makings of a memorable night for him, Luongo turned aside just 15 of 17 shots in a 2-1 loss. "A win would have been nice, but the effort was there," said Luongo. "We just couldn't get the equalizer." He will be the Panthers' undisputed starting goaltender next season, but how well he does from a fantasy perspective will partially depend on if the Panthers are able to meaningfully upgrade their team over the summer.
Apr 5 - 9:49 AM

Roberto Luongo stopped just 15 shots on 17 attempts, losing for the fourth time in five games as Calgary beat Florida 2-1 on Friday night.

Luongo's record has suffered since the trade to the Panthers, as he sits at 4-6-2 in Florida, compared to 19-16-9 in Vancouver. His save percentage is up at .921 compared to .917, but goals against average is up as well at 2.50 as a Panther compared to 2.38. Luongo appears to be playing about the same as he has earlier this season, but is feeling the affects of a weaker team.
Apr 4 - 10:47 PM

Roberto Luongo hopes to return on Friday after he suffered a mild concussion on Mar. 27 against Carolina when he was run over by Radek Dvorak.

He practiced on Thursday and appears to be ready to play again. "I think it was the initial contact," he said after the session. "My head hit the post on the way down, too, but it wasn't as hard as the initial hit."
Apr 4 - 8:08 AM

Roberto Luongo is expected to be ready to return on Friday from a neck injury.

When that happens, Scott Clemmensen will head back to the minors. Luongo has been out of action since Mar. 27 when he played one period against Carolina.
Apr 2 - 3:59 PM

The Florida Panthers note that Roberto Luongo(neck) will not join the team during its two-game road trip.

The good news is that it sounds like he should be available to play in the team's final five games. If this is correct, then he'd be available on Friday (April 4), so you'll be without him as an option for much of this next week (for those in weekly head-to-head leagues).
