Luongo finished the period but did not return. Dan Ellis took over net duties for the Panthers the rest of the way.
According to the Panthers' PR department, the move was simply precautionary,
#FlaPanthers Roberto Luongo left the game after the first with an upper body injury--pulled as a precautionary measure.
