Injured Luongo dominates NHL All Star voting
Roberto Luongo is injured. The anchor of the Vancouver Canucks hockey team declared himself unfit to play due to a rib injury. Luongo, however, continues to dominate the All Star voting for the goalie category, with nearly 20,000 more votes than Pascal Laclaire. Oh yeah, and Luongo's backup Curtis Sanford is pretty good too, stopping 33 of 35 shots last night against the Anaheim Ducks, 16 of which came in the 3rd period.
He may be on the outs health-wise, but Canucks goalie Roberto Luongo (left) is in when it comes to all-star voting. In fan balloting results for the Western Conference released Wednesday, Luongo is the top goalie, pulling in 154,591 votes, nearly 20,000 more than Columbus's Pascal Leclaire's 135,447. The overall vote leaders are two Detroit Red Wings: Nicklas Lidstrom (301,245) and Henrik Zetterberg (210,890).
