That's So MAF (the musings of a Penguins goalie)!

BETTER LATE THAN NEVER (this post was written the day after the game, but I never got around to actually posting it; it was the talk of the internet the day after this game - January 12th)

If any of you were / are wondering what Fleury was doing crossing his arms in a brief pose at the sound of the buzzer marking the end of the game a few weeks ago on January 12th (pictured left), the answer lies in what occurred at the end of the last game the Pens played against the Habs.  It was pretty much Fleury taking a jab at Canadiens goalie Carey Price who, in their previous meeting after stopping all 5 of the Pens shootout attempts to win the game over them 2-1, he stood up and struck a similar pose (pictured below).

When asked about it, Fleury had this to say, "I just thought that's how we celebrate in Montreal," Fleury said, when asked why he did it. "I don't know. For a laugh."

And to all of those Habs fans who are in an uproar about Fleury's actions, I only have ONE THING to say, "ole, ole, ole, ole, O-LE, O-LE!" [and maybe your goalie should concern himself more with his consistency (LACK thereof) instead of taunting the opposing team when he simply does his job as a goalie!!]
