Marc-Andre Fleury played out of his mind for the Penguins
The Pittsburgh Penguins put the final nail in the coffin riding Marc-Andre Fleury as the hot goalie beating the Caps in game seven 2-0
Marc-Andre Fleury is the hot goalie now. I am saying that right after they got their butts pounded the last two games before they beat the Caps yesterday 2-0. Alex Ovechkin was doing anything, and everything he could try to get a goal but all was for not. Marc-Andre Fleury just saw the puck all too well.
Fleury and the Penguins knew that all the luck was in their favor as he made a ridiculous save with the shaft of his stick. Ovechkin already was celebrating like he tied up the game but it was a little too early. Saves like that are moral killers and it did just that. After the Save, Marc-Andre Fleury gave a look and the smile just to say I got you now. From that point on the Caps didn’t stand a chance.
Plus there is no other sport that you can get away with such a clear showing of disrespect. Love it!!

“I talk to my stick, maybe. I say ‘thank you’ and say ‘good job,’ ” recalled Fleury after the game.
Fleury finished the night with 29 saves in game seven which is the second game seven he has won against the Caps on their home ice. In this series three of their wins came on the road.
“I think that we’re kidding ourselves if we don’t give Flower an awful lot of credit,” said center Matt Cullen. “He stole us more than one game this series and he kept us in a lot of others. We give him a lot of credit, and we’re all so happy for him and proud of him.”
The Penguins are going to ride this hot goalie all the way into another Lord’s Stanley Cup. The next series
