Canucks need 'more' from Luongo

CHICAGO -- Good news for Roberto Luongo -- he's a Vezina Trophy finalist.

There, that outta take some of the edge off those back-to-back hooks in Games 4 and 5.

The team with all the awards --two Art Ross, a Hart, Jennings and President's to name a few -- needs answers more than it needs hardware right now.

Head coach Alain Vigneault is calling on everyone, stars and foot soldiers alike, to be better.

"We need more from our four lines, our six defencemen and more from our goaltender," he said.

After a brilliant shutout in Game 1, Luongo's grip on the series seems to be slipping. He's allowed 10 goals in just over three periods and has a ghastly 3.67 goals-against average and .885 save percentage.

The last time he was pulled in consecutive games was March 2008.

It looks like the Hawks have crawled inside his kitchen again.

"I don't see in his head so I dont know," said Hawks winger Marian Hossa, who had two goals, both on Luongo's suspect glove hand, in Game 5. "But hopefully."

Luongo says his mental five-hole is just fine, thank you.

"It's four out of seven, you know," he said. "After three games you would have thought we were in their heads. Now its 3-2 and people suggest the opposite. Thats what happens in the playoffs."
