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. Oct 31 - 10:11 AM

Roberto Luongo was exceptional in the Panthers' win over the Coyotes on Thursday night, making saves on 32 of the 33 shots he faced.

Luongo has posted decent numbers despite playing on a Panthers team that finished near the league basement last year. He is 3-2-2 with a .926 save percentage and 2.33 goals against average.

The Florida Panthers appear to be back on track after a successful road trip.

The Panthers went 2-0-2 on the trip that saw them play in Buffalo, Washington, Colorado and Arizona. Roberto Luongo was terrific in Saturday's overtime loss to Arizona, but the Panthers couldn't muster enough offense to win the game. Despite the solid performances of late, it would be a major surprise if Florida made the playoffs.

Roberto Luongo did all he could to give the Panthers a chance to win Saturday night, but his 39-save effort earned them just a point in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Coyotes.

Luongo deserved better. The Panthers took a 1-0 lead early in the third period, but Florida's penalties were its undoing, as both Coyotes goals were scored on the man advantage. Luongo is not letting a tough situation get him down in the early going, posting a 2.57 goals-against average and .917 save percentage this season.

Look for Roberto Luongo to start in goal Saturday against Arizona.

He is coming off a 4-3 OT win over Colorado Tuesday and has had a nice stretch of days to rest. Luongo should be fresh against the Coyotes.
Oct 25 - 10:14 AM

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.
Oct 18 - 10:15 AM

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.
Oct 17 - 10:01 PM

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.
Oct 13 - 10:53 PM

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.
Oct 13 - 1:27 PM

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.
Oct 12 - 11:45 AM

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.
