After tribute to shooting victims, Luongo stops Capitals

SUNRISE, Fla. (AP) Roberto Luongo spoke eloquently on the ice and then played brilliantly in net.

On a night when the Florida Panthers honored the victims of last week's shooting at nearby Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, their veteran goalie delivered a stirring speech to the crowd during a somber pregame tribute.

Once the puck was dropped Thursday, he made 33 saves in his third game since returning from a groin injury to lead the Panthers to a 3-2 victory over the Washington Capitals.
