Canucks' Luongo to start in goal against Oilers

VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault says Roberto Luongo will start when the Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.

The Canucks are coming of an embarrassing 7-3 home loss to Anaheim in their season opener Saturday, with Vancouver starter Cory Schneider getting pulled in favor of Luongo after allowing five goals on 14 shots.

Luongo allowed two goals on 12 shots - both by Teemu Selanne - that gave the Ducks 6-2 and 7-3 leads.

Luongo, the Canucks' former No. 1 goalie, is on the trading block after being displaced by Schneider in last spring's playoffs.

Quote of the Day

I think everyone left it out there. Every game this season, regular season and playoffs, we played as hard as we could. We're not out of the playoffs right now because of lack of effort, and that's all that we can ask of each other.
