I found myself, much like probably every other Canuck fan on Saturday night biting my fingernails and sitting on the edge of my seat for 3/4 of the game. Perhaps it was the early goal that got past Luongo, or the daze I was left in after I quickly adjusted my TV, trying to fix the color from the new (baby blue Canucks Jerseys). However I think the major contributor to my upset stomach was the major scare to "King Luongo".
In the second period of the game, Lankow was cross checked into Luongo by newly addition Arron Miller. The funny thing after the replay it looked like Luongo was selling the call big time. But after a few seconds he was still lying on the ice in what looked like obvious pain.
"It's alright right now," said Luongo."I don't know if he was pushing or not but he fell on me and I fell back on my knee."
At that very moment, I could feel my heart start to pound I looked on like I just witnessed a car crash, It was like time had stopped, and everything and anything the Canucks did in the past year was riding on what Luongo was about to do next.
Luckily Luongo's next's actions were positive and he was able to shake it off. But I sat there still on my seat shaking my head wondering what if.
Does anyone else worry about this like I do ? Do the Canucks have everything riding on Luongo ?
