Personally, I find the goaltending a wash on paper and it'll be who really wants it more for this game IMHO
Luongo has won world championships for Canada. He also won that semi-final match against the Czechs in the World Cup in 2004. But in terms of the NHL, Luongo hasn't really won much. A couple of playoff series, but that's about it.
Luongo also has the most home victories (since moving to Vancouber) in the NHL. I think that will give him a small edge.
You're right though - the team that wins is the team that wants it more.
