They're going to reassess it and I'll know more tomorrow."

Roberto Luongo (lower body) has left Saturday night's contest against the Tampa Bay Lightning and will not return.

Oct 6 - 8:54 PM

Roberto Luongo is probable to start in goal Saturday night against Tampa.

It is the Panthers' season debut and Luongo is the team's starter, so this isn't a huge reach, but stayed tuned for confirmation. The 39-year-old has had his challenges staying healthy, but when he's able to play the past few seasons, he's been pretty steady. Drafting James Reimer as a handcuff wouldn't be a bad idea if you are a Luongo owner.
Oct 6 - 11:55 AM

Coach Bob Boughner would like to see Roberto Luongo play 50 games this season.

Luongo was limited to 35 appearances last year and he played in 40 contests during the 2016-17 season. The 39-year-old netminder has performed well when he's been healthy, but avoiding injuries has been difficult. If he misses time again this year then James Reimer will be looked upon to step up for the Panthers.

Roberto Luongo was irate following Wednesday's preseason game against Montreal.

Canadiens forward Max Domi sucker-punched Florida defender Aaron Ekblad in the contest, drawing the ire of the Panthers in the process. "I'm sure the league will look at it and we definitely won't forget about it," said Luongo. "You don't do that. You respect your opponents and if your opponent doesn't want to engage in a fight, there's no reason to drop your glove and punch him square in the face. Bit of a gutless play. You don't do those types of things." Domi will face a hearing on Thursday with the NHL Department of Player Safety.

Roberto Luongo believes that the Panthers are close to being able to win a Stanley Cup.

"The way we finished, adding (Mike) Hoffman, there are a lot of things to be excited about," the 39-year-old said. "I just wish I was five to 10 years younger so I could be here for a while with them, that's the part that is a little bit scary for me. I feel like we are right there and hopefully it will happen in the next couple of years but if it's five or six years down the road, then I don't think I'll be around for that, and that's scary."
Sep 1 - 6:08 PM

Roberto Luongo still isn't over the fact that the Florida Panthers missed the playoffs in 2017-18.

The Panthers dug themselves into a hole early, but they managed to make things interesting late. In the end, they missed the postseason by one point and that stings for the veteran goaltender. But now that the Stanley Cup Playoffs are over, he can start getting over it. "Until hockey’s off TV, it’s tough to start focusing on the next year," Luongo said. "Obviously, the emotions start to go away as time goes by. But for me personally, it’s always been about once the season is over as far as the Stanley Cup Final is when I can start moving on. And everybody’s back on the same page and working for the next season."

Roberto Luongo will probably be in goal for Florida Sunday night.

Luongo was slated to start Saturday, but the Panthers made a late switch and went with James Reimer after learning the team had been eliminated from postseason contention.

He has turned aside 98 of the 103 shots he has faced during his three-game win streak. Luongo has posted a record of 18-11-2 this season with a 2.48 goals-against average and .929 save percentage.
