When Marc-Andre Fleury took his place in goal tonight, he was most likely aware of the rumors swirling around him. He might get sent down. He might get traded. He's dating Hilary Duff.

Legal.

He stared this adversity in the face...and lost. The Penguins, though, were without all of their top guns. We can't really judge his performance from listening to game on the radio, but the Pens lost and Fleury was in net.

Michel Oullet scored a power play goal for the Pens for a 1-0 lead. Buffalo scored a power play goal of their own towards the end of the period. Ryan Malone scored for the Pens in the second and they took a 2-1 lead going into the third. We all know what happens next.

It took Buffalo three minutes to tie the game up. Chris Drury scored for Buffalo with nine minutes left in the game to take a 3-2 lead. An empty net goal sealed the deal and that was it.

Stats
  • Henrik Tallinder (BUF) - 1 G, 1 A
  • PowerPlay: (BUF 1 for 6) (Pens 1 for 3)
  • Shots: Buf (29) Pens (22)
  • Fleury - 25 saves
  • Kristopher Letang: 20:43 ice-time, -1
  • Malkin participated in the morning skate.

PENS NEXT GAME: THURSDAY, OCTOBER 5. PHILADELPHIA. MELLON ARENA. OPENING NIGHT.
