Roberto Luongo fooled by centre-ice shot
Panthers netminder allows unlikely goal
Florida Panthers goalie Roberto Luongo probably wants this one back.
In Tuesday night's game against the Anaheim Ducks, forward Tim Jackman lobbed a backhand shot from near centre ice that bounced past the veteran netminder.
The Panthers were up 5-1 in the second period before the unlikely goal squeaked through. Florida ultimately wasn't too concerned, as they went on to win by a score of 6-2.
Of course, the Montreal native took the slip in stride, and tweeted a brilliant solution to the problem.

It was just over a week ago when a similarly harmless-looking shot beat Toronto Maple Leafs goaltender Jonathan Bernier in a 3-1 loss to the Phoenix Coyotes.
