from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,
An obvious goalie interference penalty on Lungo that wasn't called led directly to the eventual game-winning goal as the Panthers fell 2-1 to the desperate Coyotes Thursday night.
A Panthers source told the Sun-Sentinel that the referee admitted to the supervisor that he blew the call, but it's not reviewable unless it was called on the ice.
"He told me that a guy pushed him into me so I have to look at the replay,'' Luongo said. "I felt like I was already in the blue once the contact was made. It's tough for me to do my job when I end up in the corner. … It's frustrating because you can only give yourself a chance to make a save and on a play like that when you're truly taken out of a play you can't do anything about it.
"Unfortunately, that ends up being the game-winning goal.''
