Claude Julien says the Bruins are not using Roberto Luongo’s Game 5 post-game comments as motivation for Game 6 in Boston; but it’s clear the remarks have rubbed members of the Bruins organization the wrong way.

Jun 10, 2011, 5:21 AM EDT
The word is that Roberto Luongo will remain in Vancouver’s net for Game 5. That word came from Canucks coach Alain Vigneault, though, so you never really know.

After Roberto Luongo gave up 12 goals in his last two starts, do you think the Canucks should start him in Game 5?
Jun 9, 2011, 10:00 AM EDT
There’s a lot to pick through after Game 4 and a lot of it has to do with Brad Marchand and the great job he’s done in this series and with things getting ugly for Roberto Luongo as well.

At one point, it seemed like “Chelsea Dagger” would be the ultimate theme song for Roberto Luongo’s saddest hockey moments. Yet after two disastrous games hearing plenty of the Bruins’ goal song, we decided to compile a “greatest hits” collection of the song he probably hates the most.

Much like Tim Thomas did as Game 3 approached, Roberto Luongo won’t let some bumps in the road change his style. He shouldn’t either; isn’t that what got him this far in the first place?
Jun 6, 2011, 10:02 PM EDT
