VANCOUVER, British Columbia (AP) - Vancouver coach Alain Vigneault says Roberto Luongo will start when the Canucks host the Edmonton Oilers on Sunday night.
The Canucks are coming of an embarrassing 7-3 home loss to Anaheim in their season opener Saturday, with Vancouver starter Cory Schneider getting pulled in favor of Luongo after allowing five goals on 14 shots.
Luongo allowed two goals on 12 shots - both by Teemu Selanne - that gave the Ducks 6-2 and 7-3 leads.
Luongo, the Canucks' former No. 1 goalie, is on the trading block after being displaced by Schneider in last spring's playoffs.
