Fortunately for the Panthers, Segin wasn't thrust into action, as James Reimer made all 28 saves in a win over the Nashville Predators. And more importantly, the Panthers starter isn't expected to miss significant time.
Panthers coach Tom Rowe told reporters after the 2-1 win that Luongo is day to day with an apparent upper-body injury.
Center Nick Bjugstad was also banged up Friday. Rowe didn't have a definite report on his status.
By the way, Segin spent three years manning the net at UConn. Where was he two seasons ago when goaltending coach Robb Tallas was almost forced out of retirement?
