Is "Fleury" French for "soft goals"?

No magic here.  Flyers played better that period.  Some nice stretches for the Pens, but all phases were out played.  No one wins every period though, but they need to take the second.

 @Steve HP Great point.  So they really have to stop the dumb penalties.  Great PK tonight though, even with the two allowed.  No way they stop the 5-3 anyway.

There is only one key to the game tonight: Flower.

 

10-3 was great and all, but an .880 save percentage isn't going to cut it tonight.

 @PotMeetKettle Good point.  Especially since Philadelphia fans have never done anything racist.

 @Hoss I've gone to three Browns/Steelers games in their new stadium.  I can't say it's a really good fanbase.  Twice I was challenged to a fight for wearing a Steelers jersey.  Good thing I usually have about 20,000 fellow Steelers fans with me.

Being capable is pretty meaningless.  Actually doing it counts.

 

Last year he had three pretty bad games against Tampa Bay, and this year he's had three beyond awful games.  Sorry, but those are the facts.  #1 overalls simply have to be better than that.

Solid post, but one mystery of this blog is why Fleury is always defended.  He's been beyond awful, and it's too simple to just blame the defense.  He's a goalie - you're not going to have someone play defense out of their mind like Scuderi did on the last cup run all the time.  You need to make big saves and he's not doing it.  Really, he's never done it.

 

I'm not saying trade him, but it's time to start raising the expectations.  If you could pick any goalie in the league for us tonight, he wouldn't be it.
