Blue Jackets Thinking About Luongo

from the Columbus Dispatch,

The puck drops for the Blue Jackets against the Canucks today in Nationwide Arena.

But will it ever get past Luongo?

“I’ve played against him a lot of nights when it’s … well, it’s never impossible, but it seems like it,” said Blue Jackets left winger Fredrik Modin, who saw a lot of Luongo—too much, he might say—when Modin played for Tampa Bay and Luongo played for Florida two seasons ago.

“Guys get frustrated. What would be goals against other goalies, Luongo saves. So you feel like you have to be perfect to beat him, and it gets into your head.”
