Putting apart the recent massive quantity of goals received by Roberto Luongo, the guy will be back under the Vancouver pipes for Game 5 of the Stanley Cup finals. Odds.
Alain Vigneault doesn’t doubt on Luongo’s skills and he is backing him up for next game. “You can bet on that,” Canucks coach Vigneault said Thursday evening after the team arrived from Boston.
Luongo hasn’t been that sharp lately and was pulled after giving up four goals on 20 shots in a 4-0 Game 4 defeat Wednesday night. All together Robert has given up 12 goals in both games at Boston. Nevertheless, he has been the best goalie throughout the season.
But Vigneault said his team’s struggles in Boston were more than just about one player and dismissed any talk that he would start backup Cory Schneider over Luongo as he did for Game 6 of their first-round series with Chicago. Scores.
“Roberto is the guy, he’s my guy and he’s playing,” said Vigneault. “It’s that simple.”
A confident-sounding Luongo said he was set to put the last two games behind him and move on. He added that the series is tied and nothing is lost.
“You know, it’s the Stanley Cup finals, you have to think about the goal here,” Luongo said Thursday evening. “Obviously, we lost two games and it’s 2-2, and it’s two out of three, and we have home-ice advantage. That’s the way you look at it. We have a chance to get up 3-2 tomorrow.” Las Vegas odds.
