Neither Fleury, nor Anderson was willing to give up a goal until late into the third period and none of them wanted to be the goat in a sudden death situation. That somewhat turned out to be Anderson as Kessel's quick second attempt beat him low before he could get set, with barely 7 minutes left to play in the game. Pittsburgh secured the shutout for Fleaury after.
It's the second shutout in 3 games for Fleury who needed to be in top of his game amidst the Pens recent scoring woes. They also lost Bryan Rust and Justin Schultz to injuries, none of whom returned to the game.
