Roberto Luongo records 3rd straight shutout

Imagine if the Vancouver Canuck Goalie was still playing for Florida instead of being traded for shit garbage. From AP-

VANCOUVER, British Columbia — Roberto Luongo was quick to credit the Canucks defense for his previous last two shutouts. There was no doubt, however, who deserved the most praise for No. 3.

Luongo made the most sensational of his 29 saves when Vancouver was clinging to a one-goal lead in the second period and backstopped the Canucks to a 2-0 victory over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday night for his third consecutive shutout.

“His best performance yet,” checking-line center Ryan Kesler said. “He kept us in it.”

Sami Salo scored a power-play goal in the first period, and Daniel Sedin added a breakaway tally with 2:41 left to give Luongo his first two-goal cushion in two games. He stopped 28 shots in a 1-0 win over Nashville on Thursday, made 28 saves in a 4-0 victory against Nashville on Tuesday, and has now gone 201 minutes, 8 seconds without allowing a goal.

With Marty Brodeur injured, Luongo is the best goalie suiting it up in the NHL today.
