The chance of the game came eight minutes into the third period in a tie game. Pierre-Cedric Labrie took a double minor high sticking penalty on Steve Wagner and the Pens were given a golden opportunity. Norfolk made the first half of the power play disappear but one Penguins forward found room for another big time goal. Andrew Hutchinson took a puck from goalie Brad Thiessen and set up Bryan Lerg with a quick snipe power play goal, giving the Penguins a 2-1 lead with 9:40 left in the game.

That's Fleury's even strength save percentage, and he leads all playoff goaltenders in that category right now. Don't let the fact that our PK unit took the night off the last two games fool you: Fleury has been stellar so far. He is definitely the reason the Penguins are in this series right now. Go Flower!!
