08:18 AM ET 01.31 | It seemed like old times in Vancouver, where Roberto Luongo earned a shutout, a No. 1 star and cheers from the Canucks faithful. [Luongo] threw a little gasoline on the goaltending controversy with another strong performance Wednesday night. A surprise starter, Luongo turned aside all 24 shots he faced to record his 61st NHL shutout. He's now played more minutes this season than Cory Schneider, who had been anointed Vancouver's new starter last spring. Many expect Schneider will start Friday night against the Blackhawks, who are 6-0-1 after losing 3-2 in a shootout to the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday night. But many observers also thought coach Alain Vigneault would start Schneider against the Avalanche.

Come on Vancouver it was a win. WGAF if Fin played goal?

Did they expect Luongo to lose the game on purpose to avoid a controversy? I love the way these media outlets try to stir the pot and create controversy.

For the uninitiated Fin is their mascot. Here's a photo of him skating with Gomez before he was traded.

Looked more like an impromptu practice with Chara to me.

"Canucks' Luongo complicating goalie decision"

Yep. "Complicating." That's what he does best. Keep it going, Lulu. Hank is delighted.
