Luongo left Friday’s game late in the first period after going down to make a save on Hurricanes centre Lucas Wallmark right at his doorstep. After making the initial stop, the 39-year-old Luongo remained down on his back in apparent pain as Carolina winger Jordan Martinook banged the loose puck into the net, giving Carolina a 1-0 lead.
As Martinook was celebrating his goal with his teammates, Luongo was seen down on the ice holding what appeared to be his right knee.
Panthers trainers came out to check on Luongo, but he was able to skate off the ice under his own strength.
Luongo entered Friday’s affair with a 4-3 record, a 3.07 goals-against average and a .902 save percentage.
Backup James Reimer came in to relieve him.
