Goalie nods: Struggling Fleury to start versus Oilers

4 Comments

Marc-Andre Fleury will be between the pipes for the Pittsburgh Penguins tonight in Edmonton.

After starting the season so well, not to mention signing a $23 million extension, Fleury had a tough month of January, allowing 26 goals on 244 shots for a save percentage of just .893. (And his February didn’t start out too well either, with a 4-0 loss to Nashville on Sunday.)

Fleury’s five-on-five save percentage now ranks 23rd out of the 32 goalies that have played the most this season.

The Oilers are going with Viktor Fasth.

Elsewhere…

Cam Talbot for the Rangers versus Tuukka Rask for the Bruins.

Jonas Hiller for the Flames versus the Sharks, who have not announced a starter.
