On the first shot of the game, Fleury made a save but coughed up a very juicy rebound and Derick Brassard took advantage to score the first goal of the game.

To his credit, he made some fantastic saves and controlled his rebounds the rest of the game and prevented Game 1 from getting out of hand. Pittsburgh lost, 2-1, but the Penguins should feel good about the way they played in the second and third periods.
