Roberto Luongo G FLA 5 Hrs

Luongo (shoulder) has been ruled out for the Panthers' next two games, Jameson Olive of FOX Sports Florida reports.

The Panthers haven't revealed the results from the CT scan Luongo required Wednesday on his shoulder/collarbone area, but it doesn't seem as though the team is sounding the alarm on a long-term absence just yet. However, Luongo will miss at least Thursday's game against the Stars and Saturday's tilt with the Islanders, as the Panthers continue to assess his condition. Dan Ellis is expected to start in goal the next two games with No. 2 netminder Al Montoya (groin) also unavailable.

More on Luongo's status as we know it, but with fellow goalie Al Montoya likely to miss a decent chunk of time, the Panthers have recalled Dan Ellis and Sam Brittain.

Luongo, who was removed from Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs following the first period after taking a slap shot the neck and shoulder area, reentered the game in the third period and finished out the Panthers' 3-2 loss. He stopped all 19 shots he faced on the night and wasn't charged with the loss.

Upon being pelted by the Leo Komarov shot with four minutes remaining in the first period, Luongo remained down on the ice for a few moments and was examined by the Panthers' team trainer. Though he was permitted to finish out the period, Luongo remained in the locker room after the first intermission, with the Panthers deciding to rule him out for precautionary purposes. Backup Al Montoya then manned the net for the next 20 minutes before suffering an injury of his own 22 seconds into the third period. With no other goalie option on hand with Luongo seemingly ruled out, Montoya tried to play through the injury, but was clearly limited. After he conceded the game-winning goal, Montoya was mercifully pulled, with Luongo, who had been in street clothes just a moments earlier, returning to the crease. It doesn't look like the injury Luongo sustained is too severe, but with the Panthers recalling two goalies from the minor-league ranks Wednesday, he should be considered day-to-day in advance of Thursday's game against the Stars.

The Panthers relayed that Luongo, who took a puck to the neck area during Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, was removed from precautionary purposes, Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

The fact that Luongo was able to remain in the game for the final four minutes of the first period after being struck with the puck would seem to support the Panthers' claim. While it appears Luongo isn't looking at a particularly serious injury, he'll still be viewed as day-to-day until he gets back on the ice. His status for Thursday's game against the Stars should be clarified by the morning of the match.

Luongo has been officially ruled out from returning to Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs due to an upper-body injury, Alain Poupart of NHL.com reports.

Luongo took a Leo Komarov slap shot to the side of his head with about four minutes remaining in the first period. After consulting with the Panthers' team trainer, he was allowed to stay in the game for the rest of the period, but didn't join the team on the bench following the intermission. It's possible that the Panthers were just exercising precaution in keeping him in the locker room, but there is surely some concern that he may be experiencing some concussion-like symptoms. More information should be available in the coming days regarding his condition, but for the moment, Luongo should be viewed as questionable for Thursday's game against the Stars.

Luongo took a shot to the side of the head during the first period of Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs. After initially remaining in the game to finish the period, he didn't return from the locker room following the first intermission, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Luongo was on the receiving end of a Leo Komarov slap shot, which sent him sprawling to the ice upon impact. After consulting with the trainer, Luongo stayed in the net for the final 4:03 of the period, but the Panthers decided to keep him out after reevaluating him in the locker room. It's possible that his removal was only precautionary, but the Panthers should provide more clarity on the situation after the game. Backup goalie Al Montoya will man the crease for the remainder of the game.

Luongo is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Maple Leafs, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Luongo returns to the Panthers' net Tuesday after giving way to Al Montoya in the second game of the team's back-to-back set on Sunday. He'll face a Toronto squad that has dropped two straight 4-0 decisions (to Montreal and Washington).

Luongo had one of his worst outings of the season Saturday, giving up three goals on 14 shots to the Sabres. However, the Panthers offense bailed him out and eventually came away with a 5-3 victory.

After Bobby Lu allowed a couple quick ones (two in the first 7:18) the Panthers put forth a total team effort, rallying for a three-goal flurry of their own in the second period while allowing just eight shots on goal in the final two frames. Buffalo would tie it up just past the midway mark of the third, which Scottie Upshall and Derek MacKenzie answered with two more goals to ice it for Florida. Expect Luongo to quickly put this one behind him and continue to perform more in line with his .920 save percentage and 2.40 GAA as the boys in Sunrise attempt to chase down the Bruins for the final Wild Card spot in the East.

Luongo led the Panthers on the ice for pregame warmups and will be in the crease for Saturday's game against the Sabres, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

Coach Gerard Gallant typically prefers to split back-to-back sets between his two goalies, but with the Panthers fighting tooth and nail with the Bruins for the final wild-card spot, Luongo could get another nod Sunday against the Lightning, too. Any decision on Sunday's starter will likely depend on how Luongo fares against the Sabres, the league's lowest-scoring team. The Sabres have been more competitive in their recent contests, but the team's lack of playmakers -- especially with Zemgus Girgensons and Tyler Ennis out -- should make Luongo the favorite to come away with the victory Saturday.

Luongo gave up just two goals on 28 shots Thursday, but got no offensive support and thus took his second loss to the Blackhawks in three days.

Corey Crawford shut out the Cats, so Luongo was stuck with his third straight defeat despite allowing two or fewer goals for the ninth time in 10 starts. Wins haven't been flowing in for Luongo owners, but at least the rate stats remain strong.
