Appearing under the headline “Here’s a new one - Blame Luongo?”, Jim Morrison from the CP via the Toronto Star:
Goaltender Roberto Luongo must play better if the Vancouver Canucks hope to end their recent slide, coach Alain Vigneault said Tuesday.
“When we were on a winning run we were getting a little bit more timely saves,” Vigneault said after the team’s practise. “Roberto, and when we use Curtis (Sanford, the Canuck backup), it’s been a little more challenging that way, for what ever reason.
“I know Roberto really wants to get on the same roll he was on prior to this. He would probably be the first one to tell you that since probably the Islanders game, the goaltender he has faced . . . has probably had a slight edge there.”
