The microscope was on goaltenders Roberto Luongo and Eddie Lack Sunday afternoon when the two faced off against each other for the first time since Luongo was traded on March 4 from Vancouver to Florida. Lack and the Canucks would pull out the victory, winning 4-3 in a shootout, but it was Canucks defenseman Kevin Bieksa who made the save of the game.

Bieksa robbed Panthers forward Colby Robak, who had tipped the puck toward the open net before it was kicked out of midair by the Vancouver blueliner to bail out Lack.
