Luongo blanks Canadiens, Panthers win 7th straight at home

The Florida Panthers are hot at home and Roberto Luongo is doing his best to keep it that way.

Luongo made 40 saves in his second shutout of the season, Nick Bjugstad scored his fourth goal in two games, and the Panthers beat the Montreal Canadiens 5-0 on Thursday night for their seventh straight home win.

The Panthers have points in eight straight games, their only loss, 5-4 in overtime at Tampa Bay on Tuesday.

"After the last game in Tampa where I felt like I didn't really come up with the big save when I needed it, I really wanted to bounce back and make sure I was there if there were any breakdowns," Luongo said.
