One of these days Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury is going to score a goal. He's not afraid to take a shot when the opportunity presents itself, and he's had a couple of near misses in recent years. He had another one on Monday night in Pittsburgh's 2-1 win over the Columbus Blue Jackets.
So close. So very, very close.
The Penguins were winning, 2-0, at the time and there was just over a minute to play so it was a great time to go for it.
When it comes to his No. 1 priority, stopping the other team from scoring, Fleury was great for the shorthanded Penguins in the win by stopping 32 of the 33 shots he faced for a team that was playing without three of its top four defensemen.
