Fleury demoted despite win against Flyers
PITTSBURGH -- So much for Wednesday night's 3-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers.
Fleury made 45 saves in the Penguins' overtime win over the Flyers on Wednesday.
He was called up to replace Sebastien Caron, who strained a quadriceps muscle last week, but is expected to come off the injured list in time to play Saturday against the Flyers at Mellon Arena.
Fleury has a win, a loss and a tie with the Penguins this season, a 3.40 goals-against average, and a .913 save percentage. Fleury is undefeated with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this season.
