DETROIT (AP) -Marc-Andre Fleury did his part Monday night, making all the routine saves and more than a few memorable stops to put the Detroit Red Wings' planned Stanley Cup celebration on ice for at least a couple more days.
The young netminder has been outshined by his veteran counterpart, Chris Osgood, for much of the series, but it was the former overall No. 1 pick who stole the spotlight in the Penguins' 4-3 triple-overtime win in Game 5.
Apparently the Penguins goalie and his youthful teammates didn't get the memo about Detroit's plan to celebrate another Cup for the Red Wings.
One game from elimination and playing at Joe Louis Arena - the site of a combined 7-0 whitewash in Games 1 and 2 - Fleury and Co. did what few outside of western Pennsylvania thought possible.
The series shifts to Mellon Arena on Wednesday for Game 6. Two more wins by the Pens, and they will have made history in more than one way, becoming the first team in 66 years to win a Cup after trailing 3-1 in the finals.
When Petr Sykora's game-winner hit the back of the net, Fleury threw his arms in the air and rushed to the blue line where he was mobbed by his teammates.
