Fleury stopped 23 of 26 shots in Saturday's Game 2 win over the Rangers.

A decent outing for Fleury, who has allowed five goals through his first two playoff games. He appears to have escaped some of his postseason woes from the past and is looking calm and collected in the crease. Fleury is the man in Pittsburgh and the Pens will continue to ride him throughout their postseason run.

Fleury will be in the crease for Saturday's game 2 against the Rangers, Andrew Gross of The Record reports.

Fleury racked up 36 saves in Thursday's Game 1 against the Rangers, but it wasn't enough to secure a win, as the Penguins ultimately fell to New York by a score of 2-1. He'll look to register another solid outing on Saturday, and will likely be the Penguins' go to goaltender throughout their playoff run.

Fleury made 36 saves Thursday in Game 1 against the Rangers, but the Pens couldn't overcome two first-period goals in a 2-1 loss.

Just 28 seconds into the game, Fleury coughed up a huge rebound off a Rick Nash shot right into the high slot, and Derick Brassard made him pay. The second goal wasn't too pretty either, with Fleury only getting a piece of a long-distance Ryan McDonagh snipe. But he locked things down after while the Pens tried to battle back; unfortunately, the Rangers were able to stifle Pittsburgh's offensive attack.

Fleury will be between the pipes for Game 1 of the Penguins' first-round series against the Rangers, Seth Rorabaugh of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Fleury turned in arguably the best season of his career in 2014-15, posting career-best marks in GAA (2.32), save percentage (.920), and shutouts (10), while leading the league in the latter category. However, it was the Penguins' collapse down the stretch that likely has fantasy players hesitant to trust Fleury, who needed a blanking of the hapless Sabres in the regular-season finale to secure his team a playoff spot. Fleury will now have to do battle with a Rangers squad that sported the league's third-best scoring offense (3.02 goals per game) en route to capturing the Presidents' Trophy, which will make it difficult to lean on the goalie in both playoff pools and daily formats.

Fleury blanked the Sabres on 28 shots Saturday, recording his NHL-high 10th shutout in a 2-0 regular-season finale.

It's questionable as to how much Vezina Trophy consideration the Pittsburgh netminder might receive, but there's little doubt he's the Penguins' MVP. Despite playing behind only five defensemen the final week of the season due to salary cap concerns, Fleury came up big when the team needed it most. The win was just his second in eight starts. Facing the Presidents' Trophy-winning Rangers in the postseason will be a tall task for the Flower. He was pulled after 25 minutes in his last start against New York, allowing four goals on 17 shots in 25 minutes. Last year, Pittsburgh won three of its first four games versus the Rangers in the playoffs, only to lose the final three games.

It's certainly not ideal to turn to Fleury on back-to-back nights, but after the Penguins couldn't close the deal Friday night against the Islanders, coach Mike Johnston will be forced to stick with his No. 1 netminder as the team looks to earn a playoff berth. A match against the league's worst team is normally a layup for most goalies, but Fleury hasn't made things easy on himself with a decline in his performance down the stretch. He's lost six of his last seven outings while conceding three of more goals in all but one of those games.

Fleury surrendered three goals on 26 shots as the Penguins fell by a 3-1 count Friday against the Islanders.

The Islanders used a two-goal third period to pull away from the Penguins, who remain on the playoff bubble heading into Game 82 of the season Saturday against the Sabres. While Friday's loss won't help Fleury's efforts to shed the "choker" label, he actually played fairly well in this one, earning the game's third star while keeping the Pens competitive for most of the night despite the offense's failure to get much going. With their postseason hopes on the line Saturday, expect Fleury to return to the crease.

Fleury will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Islanders.

Despite their best efforts of late to give away a spot, Fleury and the Penguins can clinch a postseason berth if they're able to upend the Islanders, who claimed their own trip to the playoffs with the Bruins losing on Thursday. Even if the Islanders choose to rest some regulars, it's hard to bank on Fleury coming through in the clutch, as he's yielded exactly four goals in three straight outings, with his latest defeat coming after the Penguins staked him to a 3-0 lead. Use him with caution.

Fleury stopped 40 of 44 shots in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Senators on Tuesday.

He did everything he could to help earn Pittsburgh at least one point, even though the Pens blew a three-goal lead. Fleury will almost surely start Friday at home against the Isles with a postseason birth hanging in the balance. He could start Saturday, too, if the Pens find a way to blow yet another game.

Fleury is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Sens, Josh Yohe of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

Fleury, who gave up four goals on 34 shots in a 5-3 defeat to the Blue Jackets on Saturday, returns to the Pittsburgh net after giving way to Thomas Greiss in Sunday's 4-1 loss to the Flyers. The Penguins will thus look to snap a three-game slide that has left them just two points ahead of the Sens, who are in ninth place in the Eastern Conference standings with 93 points through 79 games.
