Flower Power: Fleury thriving in familiar spot for Penguins

PITTSBURGH (AP) Marc-Andre Fleury is doing his best to stay in the present.

Who knows how much longer he'll play for the Pittsburgh Penguins? The winningest goaltender in franchise history certainly has no clue. Heck, 10 days ago he was the backup to Matt Murray. Now he's the most important reason the defending Stanley Cup champions are heading to round two after taking care of Columbus in five games.

"I think once you realize you never know what's coming, you try to enjoy every moment that you have," Fleury said after Pittsburgh finished off the Blue Jackets with a 5-2 win on Thursday. "We have a great team. We have great fans. It's a fun place to play. Try to embrace it and enjoy the momentum."
