Video: Luongo suffers from another weird bounce

Nov 7, 2013, 11:46 PM EDT

It’s been a few weeks since Roberto Luongo gave up/was the victim of a wacky goal, so Joe Thornton and bad bounces took care of that on Thursday:

Jumbo Joe doesn’t get many goals – this is just is second of the season, despite his point-per-game pace – so getting a gift like this can’t hurt.

Hopefully this one won’t create the same awkwardness as that own goal for Vancouver …

    i hope someone punches Thornton right in the f*ing face.

      Well it wouldn’t be any of those hairy virginas that play for Vancouver

        Hey Little Boy, (mcleod) What are “hairy Virginas”? I will wait until tomorrow for your response as you are probably snuggled in bed with your stuffy and blanky.

        @hawkdawg, the only bed I was tucked up in was your mums bed and guess what, when I’m finished with her, I’m never gonna call her again

      ^ Look at these two guys. Class of PHT right there.

      Why?

      Canucks spanked the sharks in regulation.the shots and goals were double the sharks. The sharks had over 20 giveaways. The Canucks dominated this game.Brent Burns is the guy that stirs the sharks drink.

      Not having Burns made a huge difference.

    Lets all hope Thornton doesn’t score 3 more, no one wants to see that celebration

    Can’t say I’ve ever seen a puck crawl over the net like that before….. what an odd bounce.

      Second goofy goal of the season for Luongo. Yipes. Every goalie, by age 10, should have been shown the Steve Smith/Grant Fuhr fiasco of 1986, with the obvious lesson of pay attention at all times to where the puck is, where it could go, and how things could possibly go wrong.

    hope stevie and mike caught luongo’s magic…

    in all probability, canada will not make the medal round in sochi

    bring this stiff, and team canada will be guaranteed to be going home early

    russia gold, sweden silver, switzerland bronze

    Hey Muckle, Luongo already has a gold medal. Keep posting your thoughts though, you make the rest of us feel way smarter.

      He makes me feel like I might be able to take on String Theory over a long weekend!

    Bizarre goal, okay, but how come everyone in the NHL besides Vancouver knows that Luongo is a joke–the A-Rod of the NHL. Talent and winning sometimes have nothing to do with one another.

    • elvispocomo - Nov 8, 2013 at 1:45 PM

      Last time I checked, Marty Brodeur – possibly the best goalie ever – is outside of Vancouver. Guess who his pick was to be Canada’s starting goalie?

      • TD - Nov 8, 2013 at 4:25 PM

        Yeah, he can win the little stuff. Cup’s out of his reach…

  7. shortsxit34 - Nov 8, 2013 at 1:30 PM

    Everybody remembers Canada winning the gold, but they don’t remember how bad Luongo was. They won despite him.

    Pork, Avery has a Stanley Cup. By your logic, Avery was one of the best players.

    • elvispocomo - Nov 8, 2013 at 1:47 PM

      They would have won despite him? So, the same old argument that the team was so talented they would have won with a cardboard cutout in net. I guess you’re calling Brodeur worse than a cardboard cutout then, since they felt they had to change to Luongo to give them a better chance.

      • shortsxit34 - Nov 8, 2013 at 11:56 PM

        If that’s what you read then you have comprehension issues.

    • porkcrisp - Nov 8, 2013 at 1:51 PM

      Funny memory you have Shorty. Canada put Luongo in net because Brodeur blew goats the game he played. He played exceptionally well and was a major reason Canada won.

        Luongo was 5th in Sv%. He had issues controlling his rebounds, especially in the gold medal game. His glove was so shaky that he had several shots bounce off his glove or dropped rather than caught.

        Don’t believe me, go back and watch the game yourself. Or even more easily, use Google and see what people were saying during the actual tournament. They’re going to have a fresher opinion than either of us.

        Advice: If you’re going to quote somebody to try to make it sounds like it applies to your comment, don’t lead off with logical fallacies.

    I would hardly call an Olympic Gold Medal “little stuff” but whatever you have to say to make yourself feel better……
