Panthers' Luongo 'exhausted' after 3 games in 4 days
Three games in four nights might be too much hockey.
Florida Panthers goaltender Roberto Luongo spoke following his team's 4-3 loss to the New York Islanders in Game 3, and admitted he's 'exhausted' following the trio of games over four nights, according to Sportsnet's Chris Johnston.
The Panthers and Islanders opened their best-of-seven series with back-to-back games on Thursday and Friday, and after just one day of rest, they were back at it again Sunday night.
Luongo has suited up in all three games for his club, but the 37-year-old has allowed 10 goals in that span. He now boasts a 3.13 goals-against average and a .907 save percentage, down from his 2.35 and .922 marks from the regular season.
Luckily for Luongo and company, the teams will now get two days of rest before resuming the series Wednesday.
