Old friend Roberto Luongo appeared to seriously injure his groin Saturday as the Canucks won in Pittsburgh. Coach Alain Vignault says Luongo is going to have an MRI to determine the severity of the injury, but the local scribes say he could be out a while. And the way he's been playing lately, that sucks.
"It's very disappointing, frustrating," Luongo told The Vancouver Sun. "We've been playing great as a team and I've been really happy with the way my game has been in the last few weeks. It's really disappointing to have something like this happen.
"The schedule has been pretty brutal here the last week or so. I don't know if that had something to do with it or not. Tough to say.
"There was pretty much a lot of pain there. Right away, I knew it wasn't good."
Let's hope Roberto has a quick recovery.
-- Congrats to Goldie and all those Syracuse alums out there for the Orange's win over Notre Dame today. Been a long couple of years for SU so you have to feel good for those fans who stuck with their school after a nice win.
