The Penguins are hoping for some luck after their 13th consecutive victory.

Franchise goalie Marc-Andre Fleury did not finish a 1-0 victory Tuesday over the Montreal Canadiens at Consol Energy Center.

His helmet absorbed an accidental shot from the left arm of teammate Tyler Kennedy in the final moments of the second period.

Coach Dan Bylsma said Fleury was being evaluated by team physicians but declined to provide specifics. However, goaltenders coach Gilles Meloche said he thought Fleury was “going to be OK.”

Fleury was hit while covering a puck in the blue paint of his crease during a scrum that Kennedy and Canadiens right winger Brian Gionta arrived at late. Fleury finished the period but was replaced by backup Tomas Vokoun for the third.

“If you watch the replay, their own guy falls on Fleury — it's self-explanatory,” said Gionta, whom former Boston College teammate and Penguins defenseman Brooks Orpik described as a “pretty honest player.”

No Penguins player apologized for their third-period response: Structure of Bylsma's system was abandoned at times in favor of runs at Gionta, who said he was not surprised.

The Penguins were ahead, 1-0, after captain Sidney Crosby's 15th goal in the second period, and before the puck dropped on the final 20 minutes, left winger Matt Cooke was barking at Gionta in the faceoff circle.

Cooke was penalized for roughing 31 seconds into the final period.

“With a one-goal lead, you probably don't want to take that penalty,” Orpik said. “It's a fine line, but when you see a guy sticking up for a teammate, it's one of those ones that is worth killing.”
