Marc-Andre Fleury does not want to be a part of your post-goal hugs, Brandon Saad

Don't be so Saad, Fleury.

After giving up his second goal in just under two minutes, it's understandable that Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury does not want to partake in any celebrations. Brandon Saad of the Columbus Blue Jackets had other plans, however.

Immediately after his 2-0 goal that doubled the Blue Jacket lead midway through the second period, Saad was so overcome with emotion after scoring his sixth tally of the year, he hugged the closest person to him. Fleury, however, happened to be Saad's closest target and took the brunt of the hug, until he could get his glove in between them to push him away.

Saad clearly didn't mean to rope Fleury into his celebrations, but the result is quite funny regardless.
