Fleury Shooting For Consistency

from the Daily News,
The smile that Marc-Andre Fleury made his trademark with the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles is as bright as ever. After several seasons of ups and downs with the Pittsburgh Penguins, the 21-year-old goaltender still flashed the pearly whites yesterday at the team's mini camp at Moncton Coliseum. "It's fun to get back into action," said an upbeat Fleury, who took over the starting job in December last season and started 50 games after Jocelyn Thibault went down with an injury. "I've grown a year older and I'm more experienced. I played a lot last season and that's going to help me this year." He said he's hoping to be more consistent this season, noting that it's "difficult to be perfect every single game." "I think if you want to be a good No. 1 goaltender, that's the most important thing," said Sorel, Que., native. "If you can, every night, give your team a chance to win, it's the best thing you can do."
