Luongo captured the third star after posing a 3-0-0 record and 1.30 goals-against average with Vancouver. The 34-year-old Montreal native is 14-8-5 on the season with a 2.28 GAA and .918 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
