NHL.com @NHL

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.
