From Josh Peter at Yahoo! Sports,
This just in: Roberto Luongo is mortal.
Casual fans might be asking, “Roberto who?” But the puckheads among us must be asking, “Roberto Luongo is mortal? You can’t be serious, can you?”
We’re serious. Very serious.
The Anaheim Ducks did more than beat the Vancouver Canucks on Wednesday in the Stanley Cup playoffs. In a 5-1 victory, they dispelled the myth that Luongo, Vancouver’s splendid goaltender, can single-handedly carry the Canucks into the Western Conference finals. The Ducks did this in astonishing fashion, too.
Note: No disrespect to the Ducks—their goals were well-earned, and Luongo has struggled against them all season—but Mr. Peter’s entire article seems to be prefaced on the idea of The End of Luongo. Well, Luongo got scored on 4 times in regulation in the first game of the Dallas series as well. Just because he didn’t dominate in Game #1 of the 2nd round, doesn’t necessarily mean he’s out of this series. (Just thought I’d point that out. Hmph.)
