    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Unable to hang on in overtime

    Fleury saved 21 of 25 shots in Sunday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Lightning in Game 5. Making his first start of the playoffs, Fleury allowed the game-tying goal and the eventual game-winner. "It wasn't the best I've felt in a game," said Fleury. "Still though, I've been practicing a lot. I should've been better ... It's tough to lose." The Penguins are now down 3-2 to in the series and have the tough decision of sticking with the veteran Fleury, or letting the rookie Matt Murray -- who's played well overall, -- draw the next start.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Starting Game 5

    Fleury will return between the pipes for Game 5 against the Lightning. Fleury performed well after subbing in for Murray in Game 4, stopping all seven of the shots he faced in the third period. It's quite possible the net will remain his for the rest of the playoffs if he continues to perform but Matt Murray still looms should he collapse at some point. The Penguins return home with the series even, looking to guard home ice to advance to the Stanley Cup Finals.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Finally sees postseason action Friday

    Fleury relieved starter Matt Murray in Game 4 on Friday against Tampa Bay, turning aside all seven shots as the Pens lost 4-3. Fleury entered the contest at the start of the third period after Murray allowed four goals on 30 shots in the first two frames. It was the veteran's first game action since way back on March 31, as a concussion followed by a recent run of hot play by Murray has kept the Flower out of the Pens' crease. Murray has been mostly great in the postseason (9-4, .923 save percentage, 2.33 GAA), and the Penguins skaters in front of him looked pretty lifeless in Game 4, so one would think that the rookie will be afforded a little bit of rope between the pipes. Then again, Fleury is a Stanley Cup winner and Olympic gold medalist with a ton of playoff experience under his belt (99 games), so it's anybody's guess as to who head coach Mike Sullivan will appoint his starter heading into Game 5 on Sunday. Stay tuned.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Lack of recent playing time an issue

    Fleury still hasn't made an appearance in the 2016 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Penguins coach Mike Sullivan relayed the following comment to Wes Crosby of NHL.com: "The challenge for him moving forward is that he hasn't played in an NHL game in quite some time." Indeed, Fleury hasn't shown up between the pipes since March 31, as he battled through a concussion injury only for rookie netminder Matt Murray to step into playoff action and not look back. There's no denying that Murray has been impressive in goal for the Pens as they continue their quest to win the Stanley Cup. He's fashioned a 7-3-0 record and 2.15 GAA, moving the Pens past the Rangers and Capitals to reach the conference finals. However, Murray did end up with a loss to the Lightning in Friday's Game 1 -- surrendering three goals on 20 shots -- leaving hockey fans wondering if Fleury will get an opportunity to play. After all, Fleury hoisted the Stanley Cup trophy with the Penguins back in 2009, and has been involved in postseason play with the team for the last nine seasons. It's anyone's guess where the team goes from here.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Serves as backup in Game 3

    Fleury (concussion) will serve as backup to Matt Murray on Monday in Game 3, Arpon Basu of LNH.com reports. The fact that Fleury is dressed for Game 3 and available to play suggests that he's finally recovered from his concussion, but coach Mike Sullivan apparently still doesn't have complete trust in Fleury's ability to play at full strength. Monday will be the first time that Fleury has been active since March.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Making "significant progress"

    Fleury (concussion) remains day-to-day but "is making significant progress," according to head coach Mike Sullivan. Matt Murray will be in goal for the Penguins on Monday night, but Fleury was able to take shots at Monday's morning skate, so it would be appear he is not far off from being able to resume game action. Whether he or Murray will be the primary goaltender when both are healthy remains to be seen.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Still suffering from concussion symptoms

    Fleury (concussion) told reporters he is still experiencing post-concussion symptoms. Fleury has been skating with the team and even faced shots during Monday's optional practice but the lingering nature of his second concussion of the season puts into doubt his return. As long as he is sidelined, the Pens will look to rookie Matt Murray who made his playoff debut this season. If Fleury can get healthy, he remains the team's starting netminder, although the longer he is out, the tougher the decision will be on coach Mike Sullivan to pull the red-hot Murray.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Not skating with team

    Fleury (concussion) has not skated for the past two days according to coach Mike Sullivan, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. The lack of ice time for Fleury seems to indicate he suffered a setback, despite Sullivan insisting the netminder remains day-to-day. The Pens have given over the reigns to rookie Matt Murray with the 29-year-old sidelined. After participating in practice prior to Game 1, fantasy owners and fans alike should be concerned regarding Fleury's availability down the stretch, although if he gets healthy, look for him to retake his spot in the cage.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Ruled out for Game 3 against Rangers

    Fleury (concussion) will not suit up for Tuesday's playoff contest with New York, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Fleury will sit out his eighth consecutive contest as he works his way back from his second concussion of the season. It is unclear whether or not the 31-year-old has been near returning all last week or if coach Mike Sullivan is just trying to keep the Rangers guessing. Jeff Zatkoff is the likely replacement, although Sullivan did tell reporters that Matt Murray (head) is available for Game 3. In terms of fantasy options, it is a fluid situation in net until such time as Fleury is cleared to return and can reclaim the starting goal full time.

    Penguins' Marc-Andre Fleury: Unavailable for Game 2 on Saturday

    Fleury (concussion) won't dress for Game 2 against the Rangers on Saturday, TSN's Frank Seravalli reports. Fleury has participated in practice three times since Wednesday, which is a promising sign as the No. 1 goalie hasn't hit game ice since March 31. However, the Pens decided Fleury was not quite ready to return to action as the team took warmups Saturday. Jeff Zatkoff, winner of Game 1 in this series, will protect the crease with Tristan Jarry serving as the backup.
