Description: Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury continues to battle and has kept Pittsburgh in the series versus the Rangers.
Insight: Fans can criticize him for past postseasons, but Fleury has made some big saves in the first round of the 2015 playoffs. On Monday, he made a couple wonderful saves when the Penguins trailed, 2-0. Pittsburgh scored late and nearly tied it at two, which would not have been possible without the heroics of Fleury. Still, Pittsburgh will be asking for more from their netminder as New York leads the series, 2-1, after Monday's, 2-1, victory.

Description: Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury yielded two suspect goals in the first period in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals against the Rangers, but he bounced back to have a very nice game overall.
Insight: On the first shot of the game, Fleury made a save but coughed up a very juicy rebound and Derick Brassard took advantage to score the first goal of the game. The second goal came from Ryan McDonaugh on the point of the power play, but it didn't appear to deflect off of anyone. Another save Fleury probably should have made. To his credit, he made some fantastic saves and controlled his rebounds the rest of the game and prevented Game 1 from getting out of hand. Pittsburgh lost, 2-1, but the Penguins should feel good about the way they played in the second and third periods.
