VIDEO: Marc-Andre Fleury gives up long goal to Alex Edler
Alex Edler sent a shot from just beyond the red line off of Marc-Andre Fleury and into the net for yet another bizarre goal this NHL season.
Marc-Andre Fleury is oft-criticized as the weak-link for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Though he’s played extremely well this season, he has certainly had his moments of bad, still. The latest moment of bad came in Saturday’s game against the Vancouver Canucks.
Alexander Edler unleashed a long shot from just beyond the red line. Fleury made the initial save, but the puck kept spinning off his body, up and over his head and bounced across the line. Fleury couldn’t seem to find the puck after it hit him.
The goal gave the Canucks a 1-0 lead and the Penguins’ goaltender yet another reason to blush.
