Oh how I love sports fans.
"Marc-Andre Fleury is back!"
That was the sentiment promulgating around the Internetz Thursday night. You are now to purge your memory of Fleury's horrible playoff performance last season, one of which he was not only yanked from games, but benched in favor of Tomas Vokoun.
Not only that, but it appears that if you happen to make any objective statement about the playoffs or perhaps being patient, you are basically told to "shut up", which was literally Tweeted by one Pittsburgh columnist after the game.
So, again to repeat, I guess it's "Marc-Andre Fleury is back!"
For as much as I want that to be true, and who knows, maybe we will eventually see him get back to the Cup-winning level of performance, I need to see more than one regular season game, not to mention playoff games, before it's all good with Marc-Andre.
