Luongo Starting Tonight

Numerous reports state Roberto Luongo will start in goal tonight for the Vancouver Canucks when the play the San Jose Sharks.

Cory Schneider has practiced but may not be ready for a return.

My question is, what will the Canucks do if Luongo wins tonight and Schneider is ready to play game 2?

added 4:32pm, Luongo below talks about starting game 1.

I believe that whenever Schneider is healthy, he’ll go. He had a grade “A” year.  You don’t bench a 64 million dollar goalie to the extent that Luongo was benched unless the alternative is playing out of his mind which Schneider is/ was before the injury.  Luongo also had some terrible moments this year.  Just recently against Edmonton. As a Wings fan this sucks because SJ being removed from this whole equation is ideal and it’ll be a lot harder for ‘couver to win with Bob in there instead of Schneider.  It makes things maddening to predict when no ones knows what’s injured and how bad on Schneider, right?
