George Richards of the Miami Herald: Goaltender Roberto Luongo has struggled lately. There has been some talk if he’s battling an injury.

“The other things — health or whatnot — I have to put the work in and perform in games. That’s the bottom line for me right now.”

Luongo downplayed the issue, but acknowledged there is an issue.
