The Vancouver Canucks will take on the Florida Panthers in a noon time matinee today. On this road trip so far, they’re 1-1-0, and finish off with a back-to-back today and tomorrow night against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
But despite every point being so crucial to the Canucks, despite every remaining game of the season being a make-or-break game – and you can throw every other cliche out here – today, forget everything else. All everyone wants to talk about is facing long-time face of the franchise and winningest goaltender in Canucks history, Roberto Luongo, since he was traded at the trade deadline.
It’s a huge game for us, it’ll be fun to see him again but we’re focused on getting the win – Henrik Sedin
Playing against Roberto in the first game is going to be a tough game. – Eddie Lack
What Lu can’t see, he can’t stop. – Alex Burrows
It’s going to be weird. I was in that locker room a week-and-a-half ago, so it’s the first time really I’ve been traded during the season. I don’t know how I’m going to feel but it’s definitely going to feel weird. – Roberto Luongo
Please don’t shut us out. Please don’t shut us out. Please don’t shut us out.
