It won't have any impact on mid-April, but MARC-ANDRE FLEURY got off to a tremendous start, stopping 27 shots in a 3-0 shutout of New Jersey last night.

Fleury's behind-the-back grab of a loose puck made the highlight reels, but that was mostly luck. His stop of Adam Henrique's penalty shot was a more accurate microcosm of Fleury's night. Henrique made all the right moves, but Fleury shut him down.

Fleury got caught deep in the net on a couple near-post saves. But no goals, and no harm done. It was a good night for Fleury.

Last night was consecutive sellout No. 287 for the Penguins. Never take that for granted. The fans were quiet early. The Pirates' lopsided loss stunned them.
