Luongo started his first game since March 27th against Carolina when he left after the first period following a collision with the Hurricanes' Radek Dvorak. Luongo sustained a mild concussion and missed three games.
The Flames won their second straight and fifth in their last eight.
The Panthers have lost five straight and eight of nine.
It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional.

I'm going to be really happy.
