It doesn’t matter where they are, whether it’s in Vancouver or Chicago, Roberto Luongo catches flak from the majority of fans around the National Hockey League. His latest issue isn’t likely to put a stop to that anytime soon.
With the Canucks up 3-2 against the Nashville Predators on Tuesday, Luongo made the initial save, only to kick the puck into his own net. Not that the Preds needed the help, with the way they’ve been playing lately. Though the Canucks would win this one 4-3.
If this was most goaltenders, this would be a frustrating moment that would be forgotten quickly. But since it’s Luongo, you’re sure to hear about this on more than one occasion before the season is over.
