Hey Caylie,

Game 7. Vancouver. And biggest game in Luongo’s career.

He’s gonna bring it. He has too!

Hi Chris,

Like many have said, this game will be a huge statement for Luongo.

He wasn’t faced with very many shots in the first, but the one he didn’t see went to the back of the net. I think he thought Recchi was going to shoot it and didn’t even sniff it after Bergeron one timed it. Tough to blame him on that one, the defensive coverage was pretty weak.

It’s one goal, I’m not too worried. The positive is that the floodgates didn’t open after Boston got their first.

Hey Caylie,

Louie has already been called on to make a great save in the first and you’re bang on that one from Bergeron was the result of poor defensive coverage from the boys in blue.

That said, Louie needs to board that net up and do everything to keep the puck out to give his boys a shot at getting one or two or three by Thomas.

Hi Chris,

Well that wasn’t quite the period we needed from Luongo. I really feel like he should have had that wrap around.

Answer me this if you could, what’s the ruling on that breakaway, shorthanded, goal…wasn’t that goalie interference?

I’m really not trying to be negative but to get 4 goals past Thomas seems like climbing Mt. Everest with no harness.

Hey Caylie,

Did Luongo board up the net in the 2nd? No. But he did stop the wrap around initially before it bounced in off of Daniel. And how does a goalie keep a puck out of the net with two players bowling it in?

I’m not sure of the ruling, but my guess is the Bruin had no chance to stop and as he was pulled down by a Canuck, all’s fair.

Hi Chris,

This is a tough pill to swallow. Bruins outplayed us today and deserved the win. Congratulations to them.

It’s been one hell of a year with many goals accomplished, unfortunately we just fell short. Hopefully this will fire us up for next season, the same way the Penguins dealt with their Game 7 home loss, a few years back.

Still and will always be proud of the boys and our team. Until next season!

Caylie
