Canucks ready to face Luongo on Sunday

3 Comments

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.
