Video: Roberto Luongo Criticizes Tim Thomas on Maxim Lapierre’s Game 5 Goal

Roberto Luongo

Tim Thomas has played outstanding for the entire Stanley Cup, and may be in line to win the Conn Smythe whether or not the Bruins win the Cup. He allowed just one goal in a 1-0 defeat in Game 5, but Vancouver goalie Roberto Luongo said that one goal would have been an “easy save” for him.

If you recall, Maxim Lapierre collected a pass off the end board and one-timed it off of Thomas’s body and into the back of the net.

Luongo’s argument is that if Thomas were in the paint, a normal spot for the goaltender, he would have stopped Maxim Lapierre’s shot and the game would have still been scoreless. Thomas has an aggressive, unorthodox style that often sees him leaving the crease to make stops…but does Luongo have a point?

Check out the comments:

Luongo has a lot of nerve, especially considering he allowed 12 goals in Games 3 & 4 of the series.

What do you think of his comments?
