Sabourin in Net for Penguins on Saturday

Coach Michel Therrien told the media yesterday that he "would be surprised" if Marc-Andre Fleury played in the game tomorrow against the Vancouver Canucks.

Fleury did not travel with the Penguins to Atlanta for their game yesterday.

I keep reading mixed reports. Fleury continues to tell the press that the trainers are being overly cautious but I think missing this many games is a little more than just being overly cautious! The injury is speculated to be a number of things but the two most prevalent have been a lower body injury (groin) and ankle (not the same one he injured last season).

They keep saying his injury isn't serious, but I'm not so convinced anymore...

In other news, the Canucks gave Luongo a rest last night and he didn't play. I really hope this was just a one game rest because I will be majorly disappointed if BOTH of my favorite goalies are out of the lineup when I'm at the game on Saturday :(

I love Dany and all, but MAF is my boy...
