Groundhog Day was nearly two weeks ago, but it lives on for Roberto Luongo.

Every game seems the same for the Vancouver Canucks goalie, who has gone to a shootout in his last six starts.

He hopes that string will end tonight against the Colorado Avalanche (7 p.m., Sportsnet Pacific, Team 1040) with what would be a rare Canucks win in regulation time.

"I don't think I have been to this many shootouts in a season," Luongo said after this morning's optional morning skate. "I think it's six games in a row now for me."

Those six straight shootouts are an NHL record for a goaltender.
