Roberto Luongo leaves Panthers game with lower-body injury | NHL

The Florida Panthers may be without Roberto Luongo, again. 

Luongo left Florida’s game against the Carolina Hurricanes after he allowed a goal at the end of the first period on Friday night.

After he saved two shots from Lucas Wallmark, Luongo laid on his back and grabbed his right leg as Jordan Martinook gathered the rebound and put the Hurricanes up 1-0. 

Luongo laid on the ice for more than a minute as trainers attended to him. He eventually skated off on his own power.

The team announced that he would miss the remainder of the game due to a lower-body injury.

The 39-year-old suffered a right knee injury in Florida’s season-opener. The severity of the injury was unknown, but it kept him out until Nov. 1. 

Luongo is 4-3 with a 3.07 goals allowed average and .902 save percentage this season.
