Redemption, thy name is Flower.
At least for now.
Going into the first game of the 2013 NHL season, many of us were hesitant to place all of our faith into the glove of our 28 year old netminder Marc-Andre Fleury. Considering the way he ended his stint in the 2012-2013 Postseason, many of these doubts were not completely unfounded. During the five games he played...

Cory Schneider made his regular season debut with the New Jersey Devils and, suffice to say, he didn't get the result he was hoping for.
The Pittsburgh Penguins jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period and didn't look back en route to a 3-0 win.
New Jersey carried play for a good portion of the game but the Penguins...
Thursday was the first seriously busy night in NHL this season. Here is what we learned:Marc-Andre Fleury pulled himself together. He has been an awful postseason goaltender. He didn’t look great during the preseason. The loss of back-up Tomas Vokoun really put his start in focus. And he opened the season by shutting out the depleted Devils.Radim Vrbata can still finish. And the...
Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 28 shots for his 250th NHL victory and franchise-record 24th shutout, and Sidney Crosby scored in Pittsburgh's two-goal first period to lead the Penguins to a 3-0 victory over the New Jersey Devils on Thursday night in the season opener for both teams.
Chuck Kobasew and Craig Adams added goals for the Penguins, who took control early.
Kobasew and Crosby...
Originally Martin Brodeur had been tabbed by coach Peter DeBoer to start the season-opener for the New Jersey Devils in Pittsburgh on Friday night. There's been a change of plans and instead Cory Schneider will get the start.
Last week Brodeur's dad Denis died back in his hometown of Montreal and Martin spent a little bit of time in Quebec. As a result DeBoer decided to...

Games Recap: Pens vs Devils
Marc-Andre Fleury’s Shutout
YOUR Three Stars of the Game.
PITTSBURGH — Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Tomas Vokoun will miss three to six months while undergoing treatment for blood clots.
The 37-year-old Vokoun hasn’t played since the blood clots were discovered last month. Vokoun said Wednesday that he hadn’t thought about retirement yet and wants to see how the treatment plays out before making any kind of decision.
from Elliotte Friedman of CBC,
- Here's the percentage of Pittsburgh's games Marc-Andre Fleury has played from 2008-09 to 2013 -- 76, 82, 79, 82 and 69. That lowest figure was last season, when the Penguins got Tomas Vokoun to ease his workload. Ray Shero says Jeff Zatkoff will be the backup while Vokoun recovers from blood clots, which will test Pittsburgh's willingness...
After a disappointing showing in the playoffs, Marc-Andre Fleury's season debut couldn't have gone much better.
He would appear to have another favorable matchup against the Buffalo Sabres, who haven't been able to generate much offense thus far.
The Pittsburgh Penguins try to open 2-0-0 for the third consecutive season Saturday night when they host the winless Sabres...
After adding Jarome Iginla, Brenden Morrow, Jussi Jokinen, and Douglas Murray around the trade deadline, the Pittsburgh Penguins were seen as a team that was "going for it" with "it" being the Stanley Cup. No offense, but when your team consists of Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, James Neal, etc. you're always "going for it". Regardless, the Penguins...
Fearless leaders and all stars are what make up this Pittsburgh Penguins hockey team we've grown to know and love. Two of those, however, are in make or break years for the team. For Dan Bylsma and Marc-Andre Fleury it's time to put up or shut up.

PITTSBURGH — Marc-Andre Fleury showed why he is the number one goalie in Pittsburgh as the Penguins rolled past the New Jersey Devils 3-0 on Thursday at the Consol Energy Center. He collected his first shutout and the Penguins first win of the season. Chuck Kobasew, Sidney Crosby, and Craig Adams scored for Pittsburgh, Kobasew […]
You have to start somewhere, and this was a good place for the 2013-2014 season to start. Too many times, the roles have been reversed in this type of game. Usually the Devils shut the Pens down, get some ****** goals, and go home. Not this time.
The Pens (and Marc-Andre Fleury) were aided largely by the fact that the Devils are terrible.

As the Penguins enter a new season, these are a few things that are on our minds for 2013-14.
Assuming Tomas Vokoun is out for a lengthy period, what do the Pens need to do to ensure that they stay competitive for the 20+ games that Zatkoff may play?
Andy Hughes: The Penguins’ goaltending situation is obviously an issue. With...
The Pittsburgh Penguins made few changes despite falling short in the playoffs once again.
The New Jersey Devils had a more eventful offseason.
The Penguins will have a couple of missing players for Thursday night's opener against the visiting Devils, who are expected to start new goaltender Cory Schneider instead of Martin Brodeur.
While other franchises might not fret, Pittsburgh...
