The Penguins Can’t Make It This Easy For Alex Ovechkin

The Washington Capitals, especially Alex Ovechkin, were mostly shut down for game 3 of the Eastern Conference semifinal series, which the Penguins won 3-2 on the strength of the rejuvenated Evgeni Malkin’s suddenly inspired play. But if Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury makes more mistakes like the one in this video, the Penguins may not make it back to Pittsburgh for a game 6, which they would need in order to win the series. Fleury has earned a reputation for poised play thanks to his great run with the Penguins last season, but this whole season has been an inconsistent one for the 24-year-old franchise goalie. He has made some great  saves, but also some head-scratchers. Watch this cakewalk goal he allows to Ovechkin, likely the easiest playoff goal Ovechkin will ever score that isn’t a true empty-netter.
