It seems to me that Marc-Andre Fleury was created by the hockey gods with the sole purpose of balancing out the unfairness of one team having both Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby.

Thanks to MAF, the game that looked like it was about to get completely out of hand is now tied at three all heading into the third period, and Peter Budaj has settled down after a rough first period. Can the Habs win this one?
