Both the Dallas Stars and Vancouver Canucks lost some important guys in their lineup over the past few days. We don’t know the extent of Roberto Luongo’s injury, but two things are certain: 1) he’ll be out a significant amount of time and 2) groin injuries on goalies can bother them off and on all year. It’s not going to be as ugly as having Brenden Morrow out for the whole season but it’s not a whole heck of a lot better.
