Marc-Andre Fleury Named NHL 'Second Star' Of Week


Pittsburgh Penguins’ goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has reportedly been named the NHL’s ‘Second Star’ of the week – according to the teams’ website.

The award was given to him for the week ending this past Sunday.

Registering an undefeated record of 3-0-0 in three games, Fleury stonewalled 78 of the 83 shots he faced, and had a season-high 37 saves against the Columbus Blue Jackets last Friday.

Stopping 20-of-21 shots in a win against the Carolina Hurricanes, Fleury also helped the Pens’ beat the Boston Bruins — who knocked them out of these past playoffs — by turning away 21-of-24 shots.

On the season, Fleury owns a record of 10-2-0 (leads league in wins) with a 1.83 goals-against average and a .929 save percentage.

He also was recognized as the NHL’s ‘Third Star’ the opening week, so this makes it two awards on the year for Fleury.

Fleury will most likely be in the net this Wednesday when the team takes on the New York Rangers, and he’ll be looking to extend his winning streak to four.

The game can be seen on the ROOT network, and is set to start at 7:30 p.m.
