The penthouse of Vancouver Canucks’ goalie Roberto Luongo is on the market, according to a report from the Vancouver Sun.
As per the report, the penthouse in Yaletown – a section of downtown Vancouver, near Rogers Arena, where the Canucks play – is on the market for $4.2 million.
This should only fuel speculation as to the future of Luongo and, on a larger scale, the Canucks’ goaltending situation.
There was yet more drama Sunday when Cory Schneider, who hadn’t played since April 22 due to an undisclosed injury, got the start over Luongo in Game 3 of the Western Conference quarter-final between the Canucks and San Jose Sharks.
The Sharks won easily and Schneider was pulled early in the third period in favor of Luongo, who started the first two games of the series and played very well, despite back-to-back losses.
Luongo says he will be ready for Game 4 – an elimination game the Canucks must win in order to avoid being swept out of the first round of the post-season – against the Sharks on Tuesday, should head coach Alain Vigneault call on him to save Vancouver’s season.
Flames keep showing life, Stars stumble once again
If you think the Dallas Stars are struggling because of defense more than anything else, then you’ll make sure to keep the video above “on file.”
There Kari Lehtonen was, helpless on a 2-on-0 rush for the Calgary Flames, which Johnny Gaudreau finished with calm and ease. For some, that goal is the symbol of the Stars’ season.
Either way, it was a painful goal in the Flames’ 2-1 win against the Stars. Calgary won despite Dallas firing 30 shots on goal versus the Flames’ 20.
One team climbing, the other stumbling
With that, the Flames are now on a four-game winning streak. Since falling to 5-10-1 on Nov. 12, the Flames have gone 9-3-1 in their last 13 games, pushing them to 14-13-2 overall. Gaudreau coming back is the icing on the cake after Chad Johnson really took charge of the Flames’ top job.
During a similar span, the Stars can’t seem to get it together. Dallas stood at 6-6-3 after beating the Oilers 3-2 on Nov. 11. They’re now 10-11-6, essentially standing in place as a .500 team.
Dallas can’t seem to get momentum going, a thought that might have left them envious of the team on the other end of the ice on Tuesday.
On Tuesday, it wasn’t just about Jack Eichel vs. Connor McDavid. Instead, it was a clash between a fleet of young scorers who were in their prime, with the Buffalo Sabres coming up on top against the Edmonton Oilers.
