Canucks confused about own goal

10:04 AM ET 10.13 | As he stood talking to reporters in the Vancouver Canucks dressing room, Roberto Luongo just kept shaking his head. The Canucks goaltender was still wondering what had happened after a Vancouver own-goal proved to be the winner in a demoralizing 4-1 loss to the Montreal Canadiens on Saturday night. "I didn't see," said Luongo. "I didn't see it. "They didn't show it on the Jumbotron, I didn't see it. You guys tell me what happened. You guys saw it. I don't even know what happened, I have to watch it on video. I left (the puck) for our guys and was looking up ice to get back to my net and all of a sudden it's in the back of my net." A Dan Hamhuis clearing attempt hit Jason Garrison and caromed in off Luongo's skates. Hamhuis reached in vain for the puck but was unsuccessful as it crossed the goal-line first. "I was picking up the puck and it clipped off (Garrison's) skate and ended up in Lou's feet and in the net," said Hamhuis. "It's a tough break."

Possibly the worst goalie in the NHL?

I shall send the Oilers film of my last roller-hockey game that I played in net.

I'll expect a contract offer within 5 days.

No worries, redemption is coming.. ...you can put a cardboard dummy in front of the net on Tuesday
