Roberto Luongo on Goal Tim Thomas Allowed in Game 5: ‘It’s an Easy Save for Me’


Roberto Luongo gave up eight goals in Game 3 in Boston. He followed that up by giving up four goals before being yanked in Game 4. On Friday in Game 5, though, he bounced back to post a shutout.

Apparently, that was enough for him to start giving out goaltending lessons.

"It's not hard if you're playing in the paint," he said of the degree of difficulty that Tim Thomas faced on the game's only goal, scored by Maxim Lapierre. "It's an easy save for me.

"If you're wandering out and aggressive like he is, that's gonna happen. He might make some saves that I won't but in cases, like that, we wanna take advantage of bounces like that and make sure we're in position to bury those."

Luongo also said that he went on a walk along the ocean to calm his nerves prior to Game 5 in Vancouver. He then wondered aloud if he'd be able to find any coastline to stroll upon in Boston prior to Game 6.
