Roberto Luongo to start Game 7
"Roberto's handled the big stage before, he'll be fine," Canucks head coach Alain Vigneault said on the eve of the big game.
Luongo didn't start Game 6 in Chicago although he entered the game in the third period in relief of starter Cory Schneider after he cramped up. Luongo allowed the overtime goal to Ben Smith which tied the series 3-3.
Vigneault also said that Luongo was told before Game 6 on Sunday that he would get the start Tuesday night if the series went seven games.
