Luongo also made big saves off Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton early in the first period to keep the score zero-zero heading into the intermission.
San Jose outshot Vancouver, 15-9, in the opening frame — a deficit that actually flattered the Canucks, who look disorganized and were outworked by the visitors.
