Caron Save

Looking at it over and over again on the replays, it may be one of the best saves I have ever seen. For him to turn his body that quickly while sliding foward is unreal.

plus he kept his glove from passing goal line. That was even more impressive.

Simply an OUTSTANDING effort on that save. Caron never gave up on the puck whatsoever and had amazing reflex and reaction to stop that puck.

Did you see Crosby yelling after that save?? That was not in reaction to the save, (as Bob Errey thought doing color on TV), that was because he was blatantly tripped as the play was starting in the Flyers zone (right at their blue line) and it led directly to that scoring chance.

That is a call you have to make!! That trip was so obvious, right in the action of the play.

The ref's, while still calling things, are sliding back into old patterns of inconsistency.

Caron seems to make a great save every other game. He had a great one against Carolina too which I thought for sure was in. He never gives up on any shots (like Fleury). If a goalie can have heart, he's got it. (Too bad he's so inconsistent.)

I thought Fleury's wrap around stick save on Vanek in Buffalo was an amazing save, but this one is obviously better.

Easily one of the best saves ever. That wasn't a slow shot by Savage...not that it was a slapper but the way Caron had to come back for...just awesome.

i was on the phone and had told my friend that the Flyers just scored to go ahead on that play...then i saw the replay and was floored...it wasn't a goal.

just awesome.

that was indeed an unbelievable save. Thank God the Penguins managed to earn a point after a stellar comeback. It would have been a heartbreaker had the Pens lost 5-6 with 1:11 left in regulation. I was about to give up on the game when it was 1-5. I guess, no lead is safe in the new NHL
Too bad the Penguins always get called for a penalty in overtime which obviously makes it difficult to come up with a win in extra time. Nonetheless I am positive the team will have a boost going into tomorrow's game at home against Tampa Bay and finally get its first WIN of the season.
I think Fleury is back in goal. What do you guys think ? Ride Caron who seems to be hot now ? But then he is so inconsistent. I hope MAF gets the nod again. Afterall, today's game did not qualify as a full game that would count towards bonuses (one of many categories such as GAA, save %, minutes, games etc..) since MAF did only play 24 minutes. He needs to play a minimum of 25 minutes if I am not mistaken.

That save is absolutely worthy of it's own thread. Not only that, as far as I am concerned Caron has just secured himself the #1 goaltending job.

I think that reaction was more of disgust that they didn't call a penalty earlier in the play. Look around :11 in the replay, Crosby got slashed/tripped and nothing was called.

I like my interpretation better.

With the way he looks around at the net, then towards the bench, I think it was a reaction to the save.

I think Crosby was too fiery tonight for his own good.

Barking at Brashear. Pushing his own net off the mourings. Yelling at the refs. He needs to divert that energy better.


And that is one of the best saves I've ever seen.

Hmm...coincidence? When they pulled him I couldn't believe it, because he really didn't have much chance on the goals he let in, they were mostly high quality. But the above might just explain why they did it. And yea, I'd go with Fleury vs. Tampa, in spite of Caron's good play. It's not like Fleury played bad, IMO. Caron will get plenty of starts after Fleury is gone, especially if he continues to impress. I know it's early, but I wonder if Tbo might end up being our third-best goalie.

I understand what you are saying, but I really do like that he has fire. Better too much fire than too little.

However, too much fire will get him noticed more than he wants to in the league, players are going to go after him more often..

Exactly. Maybe one or two of the goals were partly Fleury's fault, but for the most part Forsberg and Gagne were skating circles around our defense (literally).

The only reason Fleury could have been pulled was to try to light a fire under the team. It worked.

Man, I wish the Pens signed Rafalski to the same contract they signed Gonchar to.
