Maybe returning to the building of his greatest triumph was just what Marc-Andre Fleury needed. Of course it didn't hurt that most of Detroit's stars didn't play. Nonetheless the Penguins' goalie had his best performance of a shaky preseason as the Penguins handled a depleted Red Wings lineup at Joe Louis Arena 5-1. The Penguins got two goals from Chris Kunitz and one each from Craig Adams Jussi Jokinen and Pascal Dupuis. A misplay by Fleury led to Drew Miller's goal but he was otherwise strong. He will see plenty of action when the regular season begins; backup goalie Tomas Vokoun won't be ready to start the season Oct. 3 as he recovers from surgery to dissolve a blood clot.
