Add the habitual 3-4 times where he is bambi handling the puck behind our goal, and I just cannot accept that this is the standard of a GOOD/+ game. The bar is just too low then.

This was simply our Fleury. The guy who can make awesome stops but cannot be relied upon to be a consistent game breaker for us.

I really hope Vokoun gets the next one - and a real chance to push Fleury's automatic starter credentials.
Simply saying "5 goals on 24 shots must means MAF was bad" is such an ignorant comment.

He was literally bowled over by his Eng on one goal and two others were off of Pens turnovers to wide open guys in the slot.
