Fleury Stops Show Treats Defending Cup Champs like Anything Bot Kings in Shutout Penguins 3, Kings 0


Molinari, Dave, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (Pittsburgh, PA)


Marc-Andre Fleury stopped all 36 shots Los Angeles threw at him in the Penguins' 3-0 victory Thursday night at Consol Energy Center.

Looked like he could have turned aside another 36, too.

Blindfolded.

"Marc was really in a zone," Penguins coach Mike Johnston said.

But simply because Fleury was pretty much flawless while recording his 30th career shutout and second in the past three games doesn't mean he had all the answers. Fact is, he was flat-out clueless about at least one thing.

When asked if he knew who Gary Inness was, Fleury responded with a puzzled look and a single syllable: "No."

The Penguins have scored on 15 of 38 chances with the extra man this season, getting two or more man-advantage goals six times in their first nine games.

"That's a great stat," left winger Chris Kunitz said. "Hopefully, it goes like that all year."

Yeah, well, he shouldn't wager his children's college funds on that happening because the Penguins are scoring on a preposterous 39.5 percent of their power plays.

Their conversion rate actually dropped Thursday, when they capitalized on 2 of 6 opportunities.

"We took too many penalties, and they're the best power play in the league," Kings captain Dustin Brown said. …
