Sunday afternoon, the Vancouver Canucks face the Florida Panthers and that means a reunion with Roberto Luongo.

Luongo, who was sent to Florida by Vancouver ahead of the trade deadline, has settled into a comfortable (albeit losing) situation in Sunrise. Meanwhile the Canucks have had a rough go of things lately.

Luongo’s former teammates are ready to do what they can to remind him what they’re missing out on.

Henrik Sedin said the game should be a great moment.

Alex Burrows said he knows the key to beating Luongo.

Finally, Eddie Lack, Luongo’s heir apparent in goal, has a fun idea for how to handle facing his former mentor.

Regardless of what happens, there likely hasn’t been a game looked forward to this much in Florida all season. Just think, all it took was for a wild, and probably long overdue, trade to go down to make it happen.

    Given how they’re playing, I’m not sure the Canucks are ready for anything except their tee times.

    How come no “Canucks foil Luongo” articles yet? The game has been over for like 45 minutes already.
