Marc-Andre Fleury would like to have this Max Talbot goal back

Apr 15, 2012, 4:56 PM EDT

Marc-Andre Fleury has had better playoff series in his career. So far his first round series against Philadelphia has been less than memorable, but he may have reached his low point this afternoon.

Pittsburgh was holding a 1-0 lead thanks to a Jordan Staal goal but Maxime Talbot and Sean Couturier were hoping to change that. Boy did they ever as Couturier’s shot was steered away but Talbot so delicately touched the rebound only to see it flutter through Fleury to tie the game at 1-1.

U-G-L-Y you ain’t got no alibi, that goal is ugly. And soft.

    As you were typing this Bryzgalov let in a really weak one, not quite as bad but pretty damn close. I’ve never seen such atrocious goaltending in a playoff series on both sides.

    I think that was Giroux, not Coulterier

    both goalies have been atrocious. its good that the flyers are able to bounce back. they have the lead going into the 3rd. lets hope that they can keep it going here and finish it off.

      Delusional flyers fans will look at this series and think they’re going places. the next team they play will have better goaltending and defense. The Bryz and his team mates will be right behind the pen’s waiting to tee up!

        Couldn’t agree with you more. Beating a terrible team in the first round guarantees nothing.

    He’d probably like to have his job in net back, sorry Third Perioddddd.
