Bruins Vs. Canucks, Game 5: Roberto Luongo On Lapierre's Goal: 'It's An Easy Save For Me'

Roberto Luongo didn't waste any time taking a shot at Tim Thomas - and the way things have been going in net for Luongo prior to Game 5, you can't really blame him.

Thomas (24 saves) allowed the eventual game-winning goal to Maxim Lapierre 4:35 into the third period, but the Canucks' goalie believes that he would have made that save easily.

"It's not hard if you're playing in the paint," Luongo said of the difficulty of the play. "It's an easy save for me, but if you're wandering out and aggressive like he does, that's going to happen. He might make some saves that I won't, but in a case like that, we want to take advantage of a bounce like that and make sure we're in a good position to bury those." (via WEEI)

Luongo had 31 saves en route to his fourth shutout of the playoffs. In the series, Luongo has 141 saves on 155 shots (14 goals allowed). Luongo gave up eight goals in Game 3 and four goals in Game 4, both of which were in Boston.
