Video: Fleury’s falling save; Panik dekes Malkin for tremendous goal

Whether by choice or a lack of offers, Marc-Andre Fleury is still with the Pittsburgh Penguins. He celebrated that fact with one of the stranger (and more impressive) sequences you’ll see during Wednesday’s game against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Fleury made consecutive stops, totaling robbing Brent Seabrook on a rebound with the sort of collapsing stop you seldom see.

That save kept the Blackhawks lead at just 1-0 (Patrick Kane‘s goal is worth watching, by the way), opening the door for an outstanding backhand goal by Scott Wilson.

Here’s the MAF GIF:

Richard Panik made a tremendous play to put the Blackhawks back up 2-1 to end the period, however:

Wow. Here’s Panik getting around Evgeni Malkin in jaw-dropping fashion:

If the second period’s brilliant play carries over to the third, it could be quite the finish. The game’s on NBCSN and you can stream it here.
