VANCOUVER, B.C. - It looks like the Canucks could be without goaltender Roberto Luongo for four to five weeks.
That's the word from Luongo's agent Gilles Lupien, according to cyberpresse.ca.
A suspected groin problem forced Luongo to leaves five minutes into Saturday's 3-1 win in Pittsburgh.
He was hurt making what appeared to be a routine save on a shot by Philippe Boucher. He slowly collapsed to the ice and was assisted off while favouring his left leg.
Curtis Sanford replaced Luongo in goal.
Luongo, 29, has a save percentage of .928 and goals-against average of 2.17 this season.
