Luongo will start Thursday vs. the Avalanche.

Luongo stopped all 33 shots that he faced in the Panthers shutout win over the Bruins on Tuesday. It was an outstanding return to the crease for Luongo, who missed the previous five games with a knee injury. The 39-year-old has not lost on home-ice this season, going 3-0-0 with a 1.00 GAA, .967 SV% and one shutout. Tonight he faces a Colorado team that is 10-5-2 on the road this season.

Bjugstad (undisclosed) will be a game-time decision on Thursday.

Bjugstad was on the ice for Wednesday’s practice in a non-contact sweater after leaving Tuesday’s game with an undisclosed injury. Head coach Bob Boughner said Bjugstad was feeling “surprisingly decent” and listed him as a game-time decision for tonight’s game vs. the Avalanche. Juho Lammikko centred the third line with Bjugstad limited in practice.

Luongo leads the Panthers onto the ice for warmups.

Luongo has missed the last five games with a knee injury but has a chance to start on Tuesday. Luongo is officially listed as a game-time decision for tonight’s game, so monitor his status when the Panthers hit the ice for pre-game warmups. The veteran netminder has gone 2-0-0 while allowing just three goals on 58 shots (.948 SV%) in two games on home-ice this season.

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.

Reimer will start Wednesday vs. the Ducks.

Reimer allowed three goals on 32 shots in the Panthers win over the Devils on Monday. It’s been a tough season for Reimer, who is 2-3-1 with a 3.36 GAA and .902 SV% on home-ice. As poor as he has played, Reimer has a solid matchup against the Ducks this evening. The Ducks have won three of their last four but rank second last in the NHL in scoring (2.19 GF/pg).
