Marc-Andre Fleury robs Steve Bernier, saves game

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sport

Marc-Andre Fleury was the biggest reason the Penguins were able to win on Friday night. This was his biggest save of the night, and it was pretty awesome.

The Pittsburgh Penguins were not particularly strong on Friday night, particularly over the final two periods of their 3-2 win against the New Jersey Devils, playing about as poorly as a team can play while still walking away with a win.

After jumping out to a 3-0 first period lead, thanks in part to a weird goal given up by Cory Schneider, the Penguins seemed to take their foot off the gas a little bit and allowed the Devils to take the game to them in the second and third periods.

It nearly cost them.

Fortunately for Pittsburgh goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was on top of his game and pretty much stole two points for the Penguins. Perhaps no save was bigger than this play along the goal-line, getting his stick down just in time to prevent Steve Bernier's shot from crossing the line.

Fleury ended up stopping 37 of the 39 shots he faced, and perhaps none was bigger than that one.
