ST. LOUIS (AP) -Vancouver Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo is back in the nets after missing two weeks because of a broken rib.

Luongo, who hadn't played since he was injured on Oct. 27, replaced Andrew Raycroft at the start of the second period Tuesday night against the St. Louis Blues. The Blues led the game 4-0 after one period.

Luongo took part in the Canucks' morning skate Tuesday but wasn't expected to play until Thursday in Detroit. Canucks coach Alain Vigneault removed Raycroft after the goalie allowed four goals on 13 shots.
