Panthers G Roberto Luongo leaves after 1st period vs. Carolina with upper body injury

SUNRISE, Fla. - Florida Panthers goalie Robert Luongo has left after the first period against the Carolina Hurricanes because of an upper body injury and won't return to the game.

Hurricanes forward Radek Dvorak crashed into Luongo at 12:48 of the first, driving him into the back of the net and knocking the goal off its moorings. Dvorak was given a major penalty for charging and was ejected.

Luongo finished the period, in which he stopped 11 of 12 shots.

Quote of the Day

(The tribute) was great, brought back a lot of memories. I felt I wanted to give them the thank you they deserved. I understand the booing and it was expected. They are great fans.
