Luongo made 27 saves in Thursday's 4-2 win over Toronto.

Luongo has allowed one or two goals in each of his last five starts. He is 3-2-0 during that stretch.

Luongo was a late scratch for Tuesday's game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Luongo skated in warmups before the game, but team officials announced shortly before the start of the game that Luongo is out with an upper-body injury. He was replaced by Dan Ellis, who made his fifth start for the Panthers since being acquired from the Dallas Stars on March 5.

Luongo left after the first period against the Carolina Hurricanes on March 27 because of an upper body injury and won't return to the game.

Hurricanes forward Radek Dvorak crashed into Luongo at 12:48 of the first, driving him into the back of the net and knocking the goal off its moorings. Dvorak was given a major penalty for charging and was ejected. Luongo finished the period, in which he stopped 11 of 12 shots.

Luongo made 25 saves on Friday against Buffalo, recording a shutout in his first start after being acquired by Florida in a trade with Vancouver.

The goalie, who previously played for Florida from 2000-06, helped the Panthers to a 2-0 win in his return.

Luongo was traded by the Vancouver Canucks to the Panthers, who gave up goalie Jacob Markstrom - once considered their future in net - and forward Shawn Mattias to make the deal happen.

Luongo told Canada's TSN Radio that he thought his contract would make him untradeable. He signed a 12-year extension in 2009, with the deal paying him about $64 million through 2022.

Goalie Carey Price will start Canada's Olympic opener against Norway on Thursday, and Luongo will start Friday against Austria.

The 34-year-old Luongo is a three-time Olympian who already earned a gold medal in 2010. He won four straight elimination games in Vancouver, making 34 saves in the overtime final against the United States.

Luongo turned away 28 shots in Tuesday's 2-1 win at Edmonton

Luongo has been superb since the start of December, going 7-2-1 with a 1.67 GAA and one shutout.

Luongo returned Saturday in the embarrassing fight-filled game with the Flames.

Luongo suffered an undisclosed injury in Los Angeles on Jan. 4.

Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo expects to return to the Canucks' lineup soon and be ready to play for Canada in the Sochi Olympics.

Luongo took part in his first workout with the team Wednesday since sustaining a lower-body injury Dec. 22 against Winnipeg.

Luongo returned Saturday to face Jonathan Quick in a possible showdown between the goalies that could meet in a potential Canada-United States Olympic hockey contest in Sochi.

Luongo hadn't played since sustaining a lower-body injury Dec. 22 against Winnipeg.
