Luongo (lower-body) is expected to be back next week.

Luongo will miss his third straight game on Wednesday and head coach Bob Boughner said he has an “outside chance” to play this week. It seems more likely that Luongo will return to the crease next week, leaving James Reimer and maybe Michael Hutchinson to split their Friday/Saturday back-to-back.

Luongo (knee) will not play in either game in Finland.

Luongo is closing in on a return from a knee injury that he suffered in the season opener, but will miss at least the next two games. Head coach Bob Boughner said the plan for Luongo is to “play next week when we get home.” Look for Reimer to start Thursday and potentially Michael Hutchinson on Friday.

Luongo (Knee) returned to practice on Monday. A date for his return has not been set, but he will travel with the team on their upcoming two-week road trip.

Luongo hasn't played since suffering an MCL injury in the Panthers' season opener. The 39-year-old net-minder posted an impressive .929 SV% in 35 appearances for Florida last season. While he is the number one goalie on their depth chart, Luongo should continue to regularly concede starts to backup James Reimer when he returns to the lineup. Reimer has struggled so far this season, registering a 0-2-1 record and a .867 SV% in four appearances.
