Roberto Luongo G FLA 19 Hrs
Harvey Fialkov of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel indicates that Luongo is likely to start Thursday's game against the Blue Jackets.
Luongo, who would be making his 38th start of the season on Thursday, will look to bounce back after being yanked from Tuesday's game against Detroit after allowing five goals on just 17 shots.

Luongo was lit up for five goals on just 17 shots before being pulled from Tuesday's loss to the Red Wings.
Al Montoya stopped all 10 shots he faced in relief, giving the Panthers a chance to mount a comeback in this closely contested game, but they fell short. Chalk this up as a rare dud for Luongo, who should get right back at it when the Jackets come to town Thursday.

Luongo allowed two goals on 23 shots in Monday's 2-1 loss to the Canucks.
It wasn't a bad performance in net, but Miller's now lost in four consecutive starts. At 17-9-9, the 35-year-old has been reliable for much of the year and will continue to see the bulk of the starts between the pipes, so he's still worth rolling out there.

Luongo stopped 32 of 34 shots in Saturday's shootout loss to Edmonton.
While Luongo was outstanding against the Oilers, the 35-year-old has now suffered three straight losses. It was a good bounce-back outing, though, as Bobby Luo had given up seven goals in his previous two games. With a 17-9-8 record on the season, to go with a .924 save percentage and 2.33 GAA, you can keep rolling the workhorse with confidence.

Luongo made 25 saves on 28 shots in Thursday's loss to the Avs.
The two teams came into the third period tied 2-2, but Luongo ended up allowing a power-play goal and the Panthers could never get back. That's two losses in a row for Luongo, but the prospect of giving a start to Al Montoya can't be too appealing.

Luongo was pulled in the second period of Tuesday's loss to the Jets after giving up four goals on the first 20 shots he faced.
Al Montoya was even worse in relief, stopping just 11 of 15, so maybe the Winnipeg offense was just unstoppable in this one -- or maybe the Florida defense was just that bad. Bobby Lou got the yank after giving up two goals to Mathieu Perreault, then another two to Dustin Byfuglien. But we'll give him a mulligan, considering how strong he's been in net this year.
