Luongo allowed the game's first goal when Michael Grabner beat him on a shorthanded breakaway, but that was the only time the Panthers trailed in the game. This was the veteran's first game back in the lineup since Mar. 7 and it's his first victory since Feb. 25. Luongo has a 15-15-4 record with a 3.13 goals-against-average and a .899 save percentage this season.
