08:03 AM ET 04.03 | The Vancouver Canucks have clinched a playoff spot, but they know they won't be in the postseason for long if goalie Roberto Luongo does not regain his form quickly. Luongo is mired in one of the worst stretches of his career. He is 9-8-1 since January 30th, when he allowed three goals on eight shots in Toronot. Luongo pulled it together to help Team Canada win gold at the Olympics, but he says that his struggles are entirely mental and not mechanical. Canucks' coach Alain Vigneault did not help him on the road to recovery by leaving Luongo in for the entirety of Vancouver's 8-3 loss to Los Angeles on Thursday night.
