Video: Fleury Comes Up Big ... Again
On Friday night, with 6.2 seconds to play in the season, Fleury made two of the biggest saves of his career as he not only turned aside a shot from Henrik Zetterberg through traffic, but he also stopped future Hall of Fame defenseman Nicklas Lidstrom on the rebound as time expired. Video after the jump.
What an incredible ending to an incredible series. Fleury had struggled in Detroit prior to Game 7 (though, he wasn't the only player), as the Penguins lost the first three games played in Joe Louis Arena by a combined score of 11-2. In the final two games of the series, with the Penguins facing elimination, Fleury was Pittsburgh's most important player, turning aside 48 of 50 shots.
