Well, MAF did raise his glove hand in a threatening manner...so perhaps assault as a backup plan if the robbery thing doesn't pan out.

Best yet - it was in Philadelphia, and the goal judge turned the light on assuming it was in the net.

I still think this one was better, although probably more related to situation than actual physical execution.



And the Secret Service Save will always be my favorite Fleury save, it is iconic.

But last night's save was fantastic, no doubt.

In the game that Fleury made the behind the back grab out of the air save... a couple minutes after that save he made a really nice right toe save and then stopped a couple rebound-whacks. Him getting his foot over for that series was amazing.

That one was definitely a bigger save (who knows if they had won game 2?), but it was mostly on Carter for shooting at the far side of the next instead of the part that was wide open.

True, although at the moment he shot it, the whole net looked pretty wide open. :lol:

I feel like you could say this for a lot of "good" saves that end up on the highlight reel.

Definitely an incredible save, but i wouldn't label it the save of the year. Great save none the less

I think this Fleury save is better than the Caron save, Karlsson put the shot where he wanted, he pegged top corner... he was burying that puck.

On the caron save, low... to the middle of the net. I think Karlsson put it in the one place he didn't think Fleury could get it, and he didn't miss.

And Brian Savage pointing at the net for like 20 seconds after saying it was a goal.

I've been a MAF supporter, but making the athletic/reaction save has never been his issue. His propensity to react poorly and compound a situation after a soft goal has been his issue. But this one is easily in his top 5.

Sure, stuff happened after Marc-Andre Fleury's save Monday night.

For one, the Pittsburgh Penguins got away with one of the least legal, most terrible line changes you'll ever see.


ummmmm....how exactly did the Pens "get away" with it if we were penalized for Too Many Men?

Because there wasn't an attempted murder charge on Cooke, plus a trial in absentia.

Fleury is the best in the game! That's what happens when you got a mediocre player like Karlsson shooting on him.
