Insider Only Fleury steals game 2 from the Flyers

If the Flyers look back at a turning point in this series, they’re going to look at Marc Andre Fleury‚Äôs toe save on Jeff Carter with less than 10 minutes remaining in the third period.
Up 2-1, Flyers forward Jeff Carter had the puck on his stick with a open net in front of him to put the Flyers up 3-1 and most likely head back to Philadelphia with the series tied 1-1.
Fleury made a brilliant save on Carter, which resulted in the Penguins staying in the game and eventually led to Evgeni Malkin tying the game at 2-2 with 3:37 remaining in regulation.
Fleury is playing at a higher level than he was last spring when the Penguins swept through the Eastern Conference going 12-2.

Fleury has stopped 64 of 67 shots through the first two games of the series and the difference between Biron and Fleury so far, is Fleury has come up with “a big save” when one is needed.
The Flyers have the talent to get back in this series but winning four out of the next five games is a daunting task for the Flyers, with the way Marc Andre Fleury is playing for the Penguins.
