Fleury makes late start, Penguins rush by Blue Jackets 3-1

Fleury makes late start, Penguins rush by Blue Jackets 3-1

On Friday night, Lundqvist and Fleury - they of the combined 228 career playoff appearances - can give their teams 2-0 leads in their respective series if they can summon a bit of the old magic once again.

"Some stressful moments during the season", Fleury said.

Murray, who led Pittsburgh to a Stanley Cup title last spring, was declared Wednesday night's starter by Sullivan following the morning skate. He was set to get the start, but Fleury was the one occupying the starter's net when puck dropped.

I'll skip the lip service that the Jackets played well and we should be perfectly content and optimistic for the future. Three Penguins - Scott Wilson, Bryan Rust, and Justin Schultz - went to the locker room with injuries but all three returned shortly after. There were flashes of good play, mostly in the first and third period. One diehard Pittsburgh Penguins fan loves his team so much, he declined medical attention because he didn't want to miss Game 1 of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. "If we keep playing this same way, we will win the next game here, too".

Matt Murray has a lower-body injury, which forced Fleury into action at the last minute Wednesday in a 3-1 Penguins win, and Sullivan declined to discuss a time frame for Murray's return. Minnesota dominated the game, but Allen had 51 saves as the Blues were outshot 52-26.

RANGERS 2, CANADIENS 0: In Montreal, Tanner Glass scored in the first period and Henrik Lundqvist made 31 saves to help NY beat Montreal in Game 1 of their first-round series. Pittsburgh Penguins' Nick Bonino (13) celebrates his goal with Patric Hornqvist (72) during the second period in Game 1 of an NHL first-round hockey playoff series in Pittsburgh, Wednesday, April 12, 2017. Fleury withstood an early push by Columbus, and the Penguins responded by pulling away from the untested Blue Jackets. Sidney Crosby leads Pittsburgh with 44 goals, Evgeni Malkin has 39 assists and Phil Kessel has 229 shots on goal. For a long stretch at the start, they weren't. The Pittsburgh Penguins are averaging 3.4 goals per game and are scoring on 23.1 percent of their power plays. Columbus hogged the puck during the first period but was unable to create the kind of traffic in front of Fleury that could produce a goal. Sergei Bobrovsky has given up 127 goals on 1,854 shots faced and Joonas Korpisalo has allowed 38 goals on 401 shots. Kessel scored on the power play to make it 2-0 and nearly made it 3-0 on this breakaway.
