Marc-Andre Fleury’s current goaltender mask is a real nice gesture to his former Penguins teammates. NHL netminders often do tributes to important people or things in their lives, and Fleury’s is quite the touching one.

The mask also got handwritten additions in James Neal — currently playing in Nashville — and one Matt Niskanen.
Yes, that one. The one at the center of all the controversy surrounding Sidney Crosby’s injury.
Fleury took matters into his own hands when he sported his mask during Game 4, with a name suspiciously taped out.
Pretty funny. Marc-Andre Fleury had "Nisky" written on back of his helmet. He taped over it after Game 3. pic.twitter.com/7lkxHIZq6i— Brady Trettenero (@BradyTrett) May 4, 2017

That’s some hardcore pettiness right there. Maybe they’ll battle out their squabbles in Mario Kart next!
