Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury can't hide from the fact that his play in the Eastern Conference Quarterfinal series against the Philadelphia Flyers has been nothing short of disastrous. With only 67 saves on 84 shots, his .798 save percentage reads more like the save percentage from his shootout competitions this season, so to think it reflects his full body of work in these Stanley Cup Playoffs is not only troubling; to some Penguins fans, it may even be a bit nauseating. As a result, fans and analysts alike are asking the same questions heading into Wednesday's Game 4. Why has Fleury struggled so severely? Why is a former Stanley Cup winner having such a tough time controlling rebounds and bouncing back from bad goals? Clearly he lacks confidence, but can he revive it in time to stave off elimination?
Fleury's struggles speak to tension, lack of rhythm
