Vancouver general manager Mike Gillis told reporters that it could be more than a day-to-day issue with Luongo. Lack said he was prepared to assume the No.1 role long-term.
"I guess we just have to wait and see what happens," said Lack, who made 45 saves Sunday. "If I'm back in the net Tuesday [against the Boston Bruins], I'm going to have to make the best of it, and if Lu is back, that's great.
"I have confidence in myself and I know we've got a tough month coming up here before the Olympic break. We've had a lot of injuries before and we'll just have to make the best of it."
Luongo was coming off a groin injury that forced him to miss the previous three games. He made 46 saves in a 3-1 loss Saturday.
"My foot got caught under me as he was accidentally running me over," Luongo told reporters after the game. "Luckily this time, the pain went away. It was a tough call. Hockey is a fast game and that's what we want to do to the opposing goalie, too – crash the net and create havoc."
Laurie, 43, is a local emergency goalie. He served as a backup for Anaheim last season. Lack said he was notified about three hours before puck drop.
"Today I felt like I was a Canuck, and I was rooting for us to win, and it was a lot of fun," Laurie said.
