Thats the reason Fleury doesnt and won't have great stats or performances. He gets the win, but he dove and let in an open net goal and then he lets Ovechkins rather weak wrister (looked weak live) scribble through his pads- if he was perfectly positioned that goal does not go in.
Again, average NHL goaltending. I am very interested to see Vokouns stats after Fleury and him have placed 15+ games.
The first one, yeah, that was on him. But he was looking to buy a call and, let's be honest, that's not something he does with regularity so I'll give him a pass on it. The second goal was simply one of the best shooters of all time having entirely too much time and space. I'm often critical of Fleury, but I had no problems with his game last night. If he plays at that level in the postseason, the Pens will be fine. That's all I care about.
