Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo was pulled just past the midway point of the second period Saturday.

Luongo allowed four goals on 18 shots, before giving way to Eddie Lack. The Canucks trailed the L.A. Kings 2-0 after the first period, but cut the deficit in half thanks to a goal from Dan Hamhuis.

The comeback hopes were fleeting. It took only one minute and eight seconds for the Kings to restore their two-goal lead. And then the floodgates opened.

The Kings scored three goals in two minutes and 33 seconds, to gain a four-goal lead over their Pacific Division rivals heading into the third period.

    And Martin Brodour continues to insist that Luongo should be the STARTING goalie for Canada just because he was in goal for the gold medal last time. As an American, I think that’s a great idea, since Reimer, Bernier, Price, Holtby and Crawford are all playing better, and I believe all But Price were better last year.

    The most useless Netminder in the NHL. Worst money goalie, all time.

      Yet he’ll finish his career with 550+ wins and 85+shutouts with a career save % around .920.

      Those are HHOF numbers.

    Also, Luongo has 32 career playoff wins and 6 playoff round victories with a Stanley Cup Finals appearance. He’s hardly clutch, but far from “the worst money goalie of all time”.

    That is nothing short of extreme hyperbole.

    Canucks30- Loungo’s stats are filled with garbage time, meaningless games. Let’s discuss his playoff record as a whole and how may Cups he has won….

    Yea, I thought so. How is the Presidents trophy banner hanging?

      So by your logic Cristobal Huet is a better goaltender since he has a cup?

      I’m going to take a wild guess; you started following hockey in 2010, prior to that you couldn’t are less about the Blackhawks because if Bill Wirtz’s blackouts, and now you’re a self professed hockey expert.
