Marc-Andre Fleury had played a pretty solid Game 4. Then he decided to vacate his crease, miss the puck and allow the Blue Jackets to tie things up with under a minute left in the third period.   Welcome to your nightmare, Pittsburgh fans.

However, in his team’s current series against the San Jose Sharks, Quick is receiving more recognition for his embarrassing behavior than for his play between the pipes.

Game 3 for the Tampa Bay Lightning was not going to be easy. Down in a 2-0 hole, they had to try to claw their way out of it in one of the most intimidating buildings in the NHL, the Bell Centre. The setting alone is enough to give any player the yips, but the Lightning kept plugging away, tying the game and then apparently scoring the go-ahead goal in the second period. Unfortunately...
