Roberto Luongo made 30 saves in picking up career win number 375 in the Panthers' 4-3 OT win over Colorado on Tuesday.
It wasn't his best outing as he was shaky during the second period where he allowed three straight goals and gave away a two-goal lead, but was still solid enough to let his team get the win. Bobby Lu is now 2-2-1 with a 2.70 GAA to go with a .906 save percentage as Florida's unquestioned number one. Oct 22 - 12:55 AM

With his shutout Friday night against the Sabres, Roberto Luongo passed Patrick Roy on the all-time leading shutout list.

He is now 14th on that list with 67 shutouts. Luongo has taken a lot of criticism for his play over the past few seasons but there is no denying he has had a tremendous career to date. He also seems to love playing for a low-pressure team like the Panthers.

Roberto Luongo stopped all 26 shots he faced in Friday's 1-0 over the Buffalo Sabres.

The win was Luongo's first of the 2014-15 season. The 35-year-old has played pretty well this season but probably isn't going to win many games this season. The Panthers are in the middle of a rebuild, but if they hope to make the playoffs, they will need Luongo to stand on his head for the entire season. Sean Bergenheim scored the game's only goal.

Roberto Luongo and the Panthers have yet to earn a victory this season and fell to 0-2-1 after dropping a 1-0 decision to the Senators Monday night.

Luongo played well in this contest, ceding only a power play to Clarke MacArthur on 23 shots, but his statistics remain rather ugly. His GAA is currently 3.78 while his save percentage is .870.

Roberto Luongo will start in Monday's game against Ottawa.

Luongo has a 5.71 GAA and .826 save percentage in two games this season. He'll get better obviously, but he's unlikely to put up elite numbers on a team like Florida.

The Florida Panthers announced a crowd of 11,419 for their home opener against New Jersey on Saturday.

The crowd was the smallest in franchise history for a home opener. Panthers' goaltender Roberto Luongo tried to downplay the situation after the game. "The people here were loud and as players, that’s all we ask for," Luongo said. "People are coming to encourage our team. We need to reward them with a better start." The low attendance number is cause for concern, no matter how Luongo spins it.

Roberto Luongo was pulled in the second period of the Panthers’ 5-1 loss to the Devils on Saturday night.

We have a feeling more nights like this could be in store from Luongo because the Panthers will struggle a lot this season, necessitating perfection from their netminder. Luongo has given up eight goals on 46 shots against this season. Al Montoya blocked the 10 he faced in 37:01.
Oct 11 - 10:51 PM

Roberto Luongo will likely be between the pipes Saturday night against the Devils.

Luongo played well in the Cats' 3-2 overtime loss to Tampa Thursday night stopping 29 of 32 shots. He should get a chance to record his first victory of the 2014-15 season Saturday night in Broward. He will be plenty motivated as he will be facing off against his old buddy Cory Schneider in the New Jersey net.
Oct 11 - 10:03 AM

Roberto Luongo turned aside 29 of 32 shots on goal in Florida's 3-2 overtime loss to Tampa Bay.

Luongo had his work cut out for him as the Lightning enjoyed seven power play opportunities. He still held his own for the most part and deserves credit for helping Florida record a point. The winner came from Victor Hedman who walked in from the blue line off a pass from Ben Bishop and went five-hole from atop the circles.
Oct 10 - 3:04 AM

Roberto Luongo gave up two goals in two periods of action against the Predators in the Panthers’ 4-1 loss Saturday night.

The two teams played split-squad games Saturday. Luongo made 16 saves, with Dan Ellis making five of six stops. Alex Petrovic scored the goal with Greg Zanon and Drew Shore picked up the assists. Aaron Ekblad finished a minus-three in 20:03.
Sep 27 - 10:34 PM

Roberto Luongo is excited to see how the Florida Panthers will progress this season.

"I’m excited to be here at this time of year. I’m definitely excited about the team; [I] like the veteran players we brought in," said Luongo. "Last year, when I got here, I was just excited to be here. I didn’t care what the team’s record was. I knew I was coming in for the future, and I’m excited to see how we progress." After having been acquired from the Vancouver Canucks last season, Luongo is entering his first training camp with the Panthers since 2005. The 35-year-old went 25-23-7 last season with a 2.40 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage.

Willie Mitchell thinks the best of Roberto Luongo will come this season now that the netminder has a fresh start with the Panthers.

Luongo had to deal with a goalie controversy in Vancouver when Cory Schneider was there, but he's at ease now in his return to Florida. "No one wants to win a Stanley Cup more than Roberto," Mitchell said. ... Coming back down here is a breath of fresh air for him because, who's kidding who, it's not [the same] market, there's not that pressure and he could be himself. I think you'll see the best of him.'' The 35-year-old netminder went 25-23-7, with a 2.40 goals-against average and .919 save percentage last season. The Panthers will need him at his best to have a chance in the Eastern Conference this season.
Sep 20 - 11:28 PM

Roberto Luongo will make his return to Vancouver on January 8.

Luongo was dealt from the Canucks to the Panthers on March 4 and this will be his first appearance in Vancouver since the deal. It should be interesting to see how much, if any, booing will occur.

It looks as if Gerrard Gallant will be the Florida Panthers' next head coach.

At least that's according to Sportsnet's Doug MacLean, who said he had not doubt about Gallant's appointment. Reports have Gallant, who was an assistant coach with the Cats' AHL affiliate during the 1999-2000 season, being named as Florida's bench boss in a news conference Monday. Gallant served as the Canadiens' assistant coach this past season and has been a head coach in the NHL with the Blue Jackets.
Jun 21 - 10:05 AM

The Florida Panthers are expected to name their next head coach before the draft.

As previously mentioned, Panthers GM Dale Tallon has reportedly narrowed the list of candidates to five people. It's believed that former Penguin coach Dan Bylsma, as well as veteran bench bosses Ron Wilson and Marc Crawford are in the running.
