Bruins Vs. Canucks: Roberto Luongo Will Start Game 7 For Canucks

Roberto Luongo has a fifty percent success rate when it comes to wins in the 2011 Stanley Cup Final. The Vezina Trophy candidate has had three dandy games at home, yet has had three disastrous games on the road.

Despite Luongo's inconsistency, Vancouver Canucks coach Alain Vigneault is sticking with Luongo for Game 7.

"I haven't talked to him. He he knows he's going back in next game," Vigneault said. "He's going to be real good."

"I don't have to say anything to him. He's a professional," Vigneault said when asked what kind of message he might pass along to Luongo. "His preparation is beyond reproach and he's going to be ready for Game 7." (via WEEI)

Luongo was pulled from Game 6 nearly eight minute in and was replaced by former Boston College goalie Corey Schneider. Luongo made five saves on eight shots in the losing effort.
