I don't see the puck until after it passes the defenseman.... that's a screen my friend. Like I said before, I still think he should have had it. I just don't agree it was a "floater" or an "easy save".
I do. That's a terrible goal. The defenseman leaned away from a long wrist shot. Fleury just did his usually playoff choke job.
Watching the TSN SportsCengre Panel analysis last night, Mathews Byron (or Aaron Ward) suggested that while it looked like an easy shot to stop, the puck hops -- lay flat onto Foligno's stickblade -- which when shot, it can be difficult to stop even if you think you can (as Fleury obviously tried to do).
Bob McKenzie countered that at the end of the day, all anyone's going to be talking about is Fleury bumbling the tying and OT goal. And the Penguins' stars (Crosby, Malkin) and the weak defence.
