Luongo (shoulder) is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Bruins, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Luongo didn't start Sunday against Ottawa because his shoulder tightened up following Saturday's loss to Montreal, but a little rest was evidently all that he needed for the issue to settle down enough to be back in net for Tuesday's key showdown against the Bruins, who hold a four-point lead on the Panthers in the Eastern Conference standings.

With Luongo dealing with some soreness following Saturday's game against the Canadiens, Dan Ellis is slated to start Sunday's contest against the Sens, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Meanwhile, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports Florida indicates that Luongo's soreness is upper-body related, but not considered serious. Consider the veteran goalie day-to-day for the time being.

Luongo stopped 22 shots but let in three goals in the Panthers' overtime loss to the Canadiens on Saturday.

The defeat was a pretty big setback to the Panthers' playoff odds, but with the team still in the thick of the race, Luongo figures to draw the starting assignment again Sunday versus the Senators. Luongo is 3-1-1 in his five games since returning from a shoulder injury March 19.

Luongo will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Canadiens, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Coach Gerard Gallant said he'd wait and see how Luongo fares Saturday before determining if he'd stick with the goalie Sunday in Ottawa, but given that the tight nature of the Eastern Conference wild-card standings, it would be a surprise if backup Dan Ellis received the starting nod. Since returning from a shoulder injury just over a week ago, Luongo has looked sharp in his four outings to this point, winning three of the turns and stopping 97 of 104 shots (.932 save percentage). He should keep the Panthers competitive Saturday, even though he's expected to square off against the presumptive Vezina Trophy winner in Carey Price.

Luongo saved 24 of 25 Thursday in a 4-1 victory over Toronto.

After one down game Tuesday, Luongo bounced right back with his third win in four starts. He's given up just a single goal in all three of those victories, and the Panthers will surely lean heavily on their veteran netminder as they try to claw their way into one of the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot.

Luongo is slated to start Thursday's game against the Leafs, Steve Goldstein of FOX Sports Florida reports.

Luongo, who gave up four goals on 25 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Lightning, is in a decent spot to bounce back Thursday, with the Leafs in the midst of a six-game slide.

Luongo gave up four goals on 25 shots Tuesday in a 4-3 loss to the Lightning.

A tough loss for the Panthers in the battle of Florida, as their playoff hopes are fading fast. The Panthers are the only team with a legitimate chance to catch Boston for the Eastern Conference's final playoff spot, but they're now four points back with nine games left. Luongo had turned in a pair of commanding performances since returning from injury, but this was not a time when the Panthers could afford for him to take a step back.

Luongo is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Lightning, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Luongo, who was won both of his starts since returning from a shoulder injury, allowing one goal in each of those turns, will take aim Tuesday at a Lightning squad that has won three in a row, by a combined tally of 12-6.

Luongo will start in goal Saturday against the Bruins, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.

The Panthers' playoff hopes are fading quickly, but Luongo and company will have a prime opportunity to put themselves back in contention if they are able to knock off the Bruins, who currently sit in the No. 8 spot in the Eastern Conference. Luongo looked sharp in his return from a two-plus week absence Thursday against the Red Wings, turning away 26 of 27 shots in a 3-1 victory. The Panthers will need Luongo to be on point again with Boston expected to counter with Tuukka Rask, who has been mostly airtight in goal since the All-Star break.
