Roberto Luongo picked up his first shutout of the young NHL season last night in a 3-0 win over the Sabres in Buffalo. Luongo played a solid game while getting some help from the crossbar and post, and Ryan Stanton in two different situations in the third period. Regardless, it was great to see Bobby Lu get the goose egg after an uneven start to the year.
While not privy to the post-game congratulatory handshakes and head butts, it’s still fun to imagine what Luongo was saying to his teammates after the game.
So here’s CHB’s Top 10 Things that Luongo Said Upon Completing His Shutout:
