Hes trying to act strong on the outside but you have to know this man is having one hell of an internal battle. He’s probably heartbroken and I just hope he can see how losing this game wasn’t just his fault. Marc stepped up this playoff series and the rest of the team needs to step forward with him. I understand he made a mistake, it happens. Nobody’s perfect (even though I think he is). The players that get paid a ton of money to score for us and play to earn that money need to step up and quit chilling in the backround. This isn’t a one man show. They need to work together to earn the title of Stanley Cup champions and if the rest of this team can’t pull their shit together, it’s not going to happen. I really hope this doesn’t wreck Marc’s confidence. I wish he would realize how amazing he has played this year and I’m glad he was able to work past that block in his mind that appeared in the post season. I believe in Fleury and I think all other pens fans need too as well. He’s an amazing goalie and he deserves penguin fans respect and support. We would have lost in regulation time tonight if it wasn’t for him. He made a ridiculous amount of saves and as a penguins fan, I am proud like none other to have Marc as my teams starting goaltender.
