VANCOUVER - Goaltender Roberto Luongo left the Vancouver Canucks game against the Winnipeg Jets with an unspecified injury Sunday night.

Luongo left the ice with 3:30 remaining in the first period and headed toward the Vancouver dressing room. Earlier in the period he was knocked to the ice in a goal-mouth collision with Winnipeg's Blake Wheeler. Luongo, who had made six saves, was replaced by Eddie Lack.
