Finally, some good news (Jason Botchford, Vancouver Province):
Roberto Luongo is back.
No, he’s not yet ready for a game, but Luongo took a big step in that direction when he returned to the ice Monday morning in Columbus.
In full equipment, Luongo stretched and skated around the rink, the best sign yet he will be back in the Canucks’ lineup sooner than later.
This isn’t a knock on Sanford and Schneider as both have been very good in relief. However, seeing Lui – the team’s captain and emotional leader – back on skates is a sweet, sweet sign for sure.
