Above: Really good goaltender

They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery and I’d have to think that Marc-Andre Fleury was a big Dominik Hasek fan growing up. Sure his Penguins bio says that he idolizes Martin Brodeur and Patrick Roy, but this save is a good part Dominator in my estimation.

With the Penguins down by a goal in the second period, Fleury was quick enough to re-adjust his positioning after a huge looping rebound. Once the bouncing puck landed on the stick of Erik Cole, Fleury opted to (probably) take things a bit further than he needed to with a rolling glove save to keep the deficit to one. The Pens eventually brought it back to a tie game and a shootout.

The French commentary only adds to the awesomeness of the save. See/hear for yourselves.

Updates from said game: Penguins lost; Habs score in the eighth shootout round; Scott Gomez still doesn’t have a goal since February 5, 2011.
