Canucks 5, Devils 0 VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) -Roberto Luongo picked up right where he left off - shutting out teams on his home ice. Markus Naslund overcame the flu to score twice and Luongo returned from a rib injury to make 31 saves and lead the Vancouver Canucks to a 5-0 win over the New Jersey Devils on Tuesday night. "For Roberto to come back and play like this, setting the tone right off the bat by saving the breakaway, he set the pace and got us going, Naslund said. Making his first start since Dec. 8 because of bruised ribs, Luongo's shutout was his fifth of the season, and fourth in his last five home starts. Ryan Kesler, Trevor Linden and defenseman Aaron Miller - with his first goal in more than four years - also scored for the Canucks, who had one win in five games after winning 11 of the previous 14. Martin Brodeur finished with 19 saves for the Devils, who opened a rare Western Canada road trip with their third loss in five games. New Jersey is 2-3-1 since a nine-game winning streak. Brodeur edged out Luongo for last season's Vezina Trophy as the NHL's top goaltender, but Luongo clearly outplayed him.

I have lived in South Florida for the last 17 years (originally from Chicago) But i followed the Panthers closely while being down here. I do not understand people that say Luongo is overrated? Trading Luongo was the one of the worst trades of all time. While the Panthers had no scoring and little defense for many Luongo single handily stole and kept them in many games routinely making over 40 saves! Franchise Goaltenders arent exactly growing on trees in the NHL right now and if they are there they are locked up in long term deals. The Panthers got Byran Allen left from the deal??? The Panthers gave up Krajicek also. Bertuzzi was damaged goods that was a free agent to be and Auld please. PR I am sure yourself and many Canuck fans is laughing right now. You could have Dan Cloutier still imagaine.

Yea that Luongo trade was the worst in Panthers history. Vancouver has ripped off so many team over the years, the Naslund trade, Bertuzzi trade (to get him from the Isles), not to mention the trade to get both Sedins' in the draft. I loved Luongo on Florida, problem is he never seemed to ever get any offensive support. Going the Canucks that hasn't changed much, but they do have a good defensive team that can grind out wins, so can't complain. Meanwhile, Panthers would easily be first in the southeast if they had him in goal (no disrespect to Vokoun).

The Naslund trade is one the worst in history Stojanov lol years ago the guy was in some WPHL league. Vokoun had played extremly well this year for the Panthers though but they knew they needed a goalie and i think Nashville misses him a bit.

I'm surprised someone mentioned Kracijek. Sleeper in the deal IMO, he's turning into a solid top-6 D-man with top 4 potential.

Hes playing way more for the Canucks than he ever did for the Panthers who have lacked a deep backline for years and he still couldnt play regularly. Always could skate and had a hard shot just was a mystery down here guess he just needed the chance to play he always had the talent you could see that.

The Canucks blue line will be a treasure trove for the next few years.

And for the record Detroit should be stripped of the name Hockeytown and hand it over to Vancouver.

Yeah, but remember, Naslund couldn't even score on a line with Lemieux. At least Stojanov ko`d a few guys.

Actually, Naslund was a total bust in Pittsburgh, so why is it such a bad trade for them?

I could see a re-signing at a much reduced rate. He's a bargain at $3.5 - $4 mill max.

Idiots! When you make the trade it doesn't matter about what-if? It matters to move a slug off your team (regardless of how he performs elsewhere) for value. I lived in Vancouver at the time and Naslund completely sucked his first 2 years and was terrible in Pittsburgh, so Pittsburgh didn't lose anything.

your right... hasek for stephane Beaureguard and a 4th rounder shouldn't bother the Hawks, he only won 6 Vezinas and 2 hart trophies, doubt it affected them at all. I also doub tcalgary doesn't care that they put Martin sT. Louis on waivers cause he didn't produce there. heck, it never came back to haunt them , I mean he scored the game winner in game 6 at the saddledome and they ultimately won the cup 2 days later. but hey, they got rid off the slug.

Hasek was third and the Hawks had Belfour at the time.

Well I recall hasek was Belfour's backup, but when Belfour was pulled in game 4 of the 1992 finals, Hasek was the only thing that kept the Hawks going in that game. Buffalo saw his great play, and picked him up, chicago didn't give him another chance. So how did Belfour work out for Chicago? They underachieved terribly come playoff time.
