Goalie Start
Luongo will make his third straight start on Friday.
Luongo allowed two goals on 47 shots in the Panthers’ 3-1 loss in Carolina on Tuesday. Luongo has been under siege since returning to the crease, facing a whopping 91 shots through two games—stopping 84 of them (.923 SV%). Expect the barrage of shots to continue tonight as he has faced an average of 34.7 shots per game so far this season, making him an intriguing daily fantasy play tonight in Buffalo.

Goalie Start
Luongo will start Tuesday in Carolina.
Luongo surrounded five goals on 44 shots in the Panthers loss to the Rangers on Saturday. It was an inauspicious return to the crease for Luongo, who will make his second straight start after a six-game absence. Luongo has allowed a combined eight goals on 62 shots (.871 SV%) in two road starts this season.

Injury
The Panthers placed Roberto Luongo (thumb) on IR on Saturday.
Luongo left Friday’s game with a thumb injury and was forced to sit out of Saturday’s game in Washington. Despite being placed on IR, Luongo travelled with the Panthers to Montreal for Tuesday’s game, but is not eligible to return from IR until Saturday—expect James Reimer to start Tuesday and Thursday, but Luongo could start vs. the Red Wings this weekend.

Goalie Start
Luongo will start Friday vs. the Penguins.
Luongo allowed four goals on 38 shots in the Panthers’ loss in Philadelphia on Tuesday. Despite the loss, Luongo will make his second straight start tonight vs. the Penguins—the veteran has lost two of three starts while allowing a combined 10 goals on 101 shots (.901 SV%). He is a risky start against a high-powered Pittsburgh squad.

Goalie Start
Luongo will start Tuesday in Philadelphia.
Luongo allowed two goals on 39 shots in the Panthers win over the Blues last Thursday. The Panthers have alternated starts between Luongo and James Reimer so far, so Luongo will go tonight in Philadelphia. He has allowed a combined six goals on 63 shots (.905 SV%) in his first two starts of the season, but will be in tough vs. a Flyers team riding a hot-start.

Goalie Start
Luongo is expected to start Saturday in Pittsburgh.
Luongo allowed two goals on 39 shots in the Panthers’ win over the Blues on Thursday. His second start was much better than his first, but he may have a tough time doubling his win total tonight as the Panthers travel to Pittsburgh. The Penguins are one of the more dominant offences in the NHL, making Luongo a risky option tonight.

Goalie Start
Luongo will start Thursday vs. St. Louis.
Luongo allowed four goals on 24 shots in the Panthers’ loss in Tampa Bay in the Panthers’ season opener. James Reimer started and got the win the following night, but they’ll go with Luongo tonight vs. St. Louis. The Blues come in at 4-0-0 and the veteran was 10-8-2 with a 2.72 GAA and .914 SV% on home-ice last season.

Goalie Start
Luongo will start the Panthers season opener in Tampa Bay.
Luongo enters his 18th NHL season and is no longer the workhorse he once was. Luongo will start opening night, but is expected to basically split starts down the middle with James Reimer. In 39 starts last season, Luongo was 17-15-6 with a 2.68 GAA and .915 SV%. The Panthers are a completely different looking team and have a new head coach, who brings a fast paced style of hockey with him. This could lead to more work for Luongo on a nightly basis.
