Today In NHL History - Luongo's Playoff Poop

On May 3rd in 2007, Vancouver Canucks backup backstop Dany Sabourin surprised everyone, including GM Dave Nonis, starting the overtime period against the Anaheim Ducks in Game 5 of the Western Conference Semifinals in place of netminder Roberto Luongo.

Originally thought to be an equipment issue, Luongo later revealed his absence had more to do with plumbing than padding admitting that he was suffering from untimely diarrhea. A subsequent tweet and explanation on CBC's After Hours confirmed that Lu was in the loo Anaheim beat Vancouver 2-1 in double overtime, taking the series 4-1 and eventually winning the Stanley Cup against the Ottawa Senators.

That's today in NHL history.
