Panthers goalie Luongo scratched from start

SUNRISE, Fla. -- Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo was scratched from his start against the Philadelphia Flyers on Tuesday night because of an upper-body injury.

Luongo led the Panthers onto the ice for warm-ups, but was ruled out shortly before game time. He is in uniform and on the bench.

Dan Ellis will make his fifth start for the Panthers since being acquired from the Dallas Stars in a trade for Tim Thomas on March 5.

Luongo played two games after returning from an upper-body injury sustained March 27 in the first period of a game against the Carolina Hurricanes.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
