Luongo left in the second period of Wednesday's win over Carolina with an upper-body injury and was replaced by Al Montoya.

Coach Gerard Gallant said he didn't think the injury is serious, but it remains to be seen if Luongo will miss additional time.

Nick Bjugstad scored 21 seconds into the game and the Florida Panthers edged the Carolina Hurricanes 1-0 on Wednesday night despite an injury to Luongo.

The veteran goalie made 11 saves before leaving with 9:38 left in the second period with an upper-body injury. Luongo was replaced by Montoya, who stopped 22 shots in his sixth appearance of the season. "It's not going to be that serious; we'll know more tomorrow," Panthers coach Gerard Gallant said of Luongo's injury.

Luongo made 36 saves in Saturday's win over Philadelphia.

After struggling some in his first two games, Luongo is 4-1-1 with a 1.32 goals-against average and .959 save percentage.

Luongo made 39 saves Saturday.

Luongo has been mediocre with a 2.57 GAA.

Luongo stopped 30 shots for his 375th career win and continued his mastery against Colorado on Tuesday.

Luongo is 13-0-2 in his last 15 games against the Avalanche. He's a smart fantasy play against them.

Luongo stopped all 26 shots in Friday' 1-0 win at Buffalo.

Luongo was brilliant in earning his first win of the year. He owns a 2.67 GAA through four games.

Luongo gave up five goals on 14 shots before leaving the game 2:59 into the second Saturday.

Al Montoya, the NHL's first Cuban-American - which gives him enormous popularity in South Florida - finished with 10 saves in relief for Florida.
