Luongo made 22 saves in a 5-4 shootout loss to the Rangers on Saturday night.

EDGE Analysis

Since mid-November, Luongo has just a single win in seven starts. Bench him until you see signs of life in his game. He's too much of a risk right now.

Luongo will start in goal Saturday, taking on the Rangers at home, George Richards of The Athletic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo owns a 5-4-0 record with a 2.85 GAA and .911 save percentage over 11 games this season. The 39-year-old's numbers don't jump off the charts, but Bobby Lou is playing reasonably well considering he's had to work through a couple of knee injuries. His next challenger is a Rangers team that ranks 24th in the NHL in road scoring at 2.38 goals per game, so consider teeing up Luongo in DFS contests.

Luongo made 32 saves in a 5-2 loss to the Avalanche. He allowed four goals.

EDGE Analysis

The game was tighter than the score indicated. It was knotted at twos until the Avs went up 3-2 at the 6:21 mark of the third period. Luongo's fantasy value lies somewhere between this performance as the shutout he tossed out in his last game. But it was just his second game back after injury, so we'll give him a couple more games to settle into a groove.

Luongo will start in goal Thursday evening against the visiting Avalanche, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo had been dealing with a knee injury heading into Wednesday's home game against the Bruins, so it was a pleasant surprise to see the veteran back between the pipes, let alone pitching a 33-save shutout to the delight of the home crowd. Luongo will now meet up with an Avalanche team that is 7-1-2 over its last 10 games.

Luongo turned aside all 33 shots in Tuesday's 5-0 win over the Bruins.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo's first shutout of the season was also the 77th of his career. The veteran netminder's 2.71 GAA and .914 save percentage through 10 starts are right in line with his career marks of 2.50 and .919, so owners of the 39-year-old shouldn't have much to complain about this season -- other than his lack of crease time. For reference, James Reimer is currently leading the timeshare with 13 starts.

Luongo (knee) will return to the lineup and start in Tuesday's game versus the Bruins, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo has been on the shelf for the last five games and is healthy again. The veteran backstop draws a favorable matchup against the Bruins, who have scored two or less goals in seven of their last eight games. Luongo's game has taken a step back so far with a .902 save percentage and 3.07 GAA, so this will be a solid opportunity to re-gain confidence.

Luongo (knee) will be a game-time decision Tuesday evening against the visiting Bruins, Steve Goldstein of Fox Sports Florida reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers had hoped that Luongo would be ready to return by the weekend, but James Reimer was put to work in a back-to-back set against the Sabres and Lightning, respectively. Florida also has Michael Hutchinson on the roster if he's needed to start against the B's in the upcoming contest.

Luongo (knee) is unlikely to be available until Tuesday against Boston after coach Bob Boughner told reporters there was an "outside chance" the netminder would be available Friday or Saturday, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

With a back-to-back on the schedule, the Panthers figure to go with James Reimer for two of the three outings with Michael Hutchinson getting the other. Prior to getting hurt, Luongo was struggling with a 0-3-0 record and 5.72 GAA in his previous four contests. Once given the all-clear, the veteran should see the bulk of the starts the rest of the year -- assuming his knee holds up.

Luongo (knee) skated prior to Monday's practice session, but won't be in the lineup against the Devils, Jameson Olive of the Panthers' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Luongo will miss his second straight contest due to his knee issue. Prior to getting hurt, the Montreal native was stuck in a rut, as he was winnless in his previous four outings along with a 5.72 GAA and .827 save percentage. James Reimer figures to continue deputizing in Luongo's stead.

Luongo is dealing with a knee injury -- apparently, it's the same knee that caused him to miss nine games earlier in the season -- but there's hope that it's not as significant of an issue this time around, John Shannon of Sportsnet reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Panthers will presumably take a closer look at Luongo after Saturday's home game against the Blackhawks. Meanwhile, James Reimer will start against Chicago, with Michael Hutchinson available as the emergency backup.
