Save of the Night – Marc-Andre Fleury (February 23)

Marc-Andre Fleury

Aside from the occasional night off – or the even less common instance when a save or goal isn’t deemed worthy – the gang at PHT will decide which tally or stop is the best of any given night. Once those two winners are determined, we’ll share our reasoning (and most importantly, the video clip for each) in posts for your viewing pleasure.

He may have just been prolonging the inevitable, but Marc-Andre Fleury’s glove save with a minute left in overtime was a thing of beauty. Patrick Marleau on a breakaway is a scary thing for any goaltender—but even more so when the game is on the line. Fleury made a great save; unfortunately for him and the Penguins, Marleau would score the game winner about 55 seconds later. It still doesn’t change the fact that this is the best save we saw all night.

    Great save. Fleury is playing out of his mind lately and keeping the Penguins in games.

    A great save no doubt. Too bad the same guy beat him less than a minute later to win the game. But with those two goalies last night, if Marc-Andre Fleury would’ve made it for 4 more seconds, it would’ve been one hell of a shootout.

    I hope for the Pens’ sake, Crosby can make it back sometime soon, because these two teams would make an epic Stanley Cup Finals.
