Stanley Cup Finals: Roberto Luongo vs Tim Thomas, for the Seventh Time
VANCOUVER - So far we have been treated to a goaltenders duel in the Stanley Cup Finals.
Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins, and Roberto Luongo of the Vancouver Canucks are both nominated for the Vezina Trophy as the best regular season goalie, and they are continuing that stellar play into the post-season.
Thomas has been fairly consistent, while Luongo has been up and down, better than Thomas in Vancouver, and not even in the same league while in Boston.
Through six games, here are the goalie statistics:
Games 1, 2 and 5 in Vancouver:
Thomas 0-3, 1.68 GAA, 0.946 Save percentage
Luongo 3-0, 0.67 GAA, 0.979 Save percentage. *2 shutouts
Games 3, 4 and 6 in Boston:
Thomas 3-0, 1.01 GAA, 0.974 Save percentage. *1 shutout
Luongo 0-3, 8.05 GAA, 0.773 Save percentage. *Pulled in Games 4 and 6.
Will we see the home Luongo, or the road Luongo tonight? My money is on the home Luongo, as he fees off the energy from the fans. Plus he went on another of his fabled walks around the Stanley Park seawall today.
