It's not uncommon for goalies to flash new pads in games shortly after unwrapping them but when asked post-game if he got caught leaning on the Sharks second goal -- a bad angle shot on which he looked out of sorts -- Luongo responded: "I wasn't feeling too comfortable with the new pads, to be honest with you. I felt good in practice with them, but in the first it was not going great and I don't know if that had anything to do with that goal or not, but I switched back to the other ones." After donning his old, more-comfortable leg pads, Luongo didn't fare much better. The tone was set early for the superstar and it lasted a full 60 minutes. Luongo was clearly frustrated after the game that he wasn't able to make the huge save when it was needed most, notably on breakaways by third-line checkers Curtis Brown and Mike Griermore
