NEW YORK (AP) – Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury has a concussion and did not travel to New York for Saturday’s game against the Islanders.
Coach Mike Sullivan said before the game that Fleury was not feeling well Friday and was sent to see team doctors. The coach said the concussion diagnosis came that afternoon. This is Fleury’s second concussion this season. He missed eight games in December with post-concussion symptoms.
Sullivan says Matt Murray will start in goal against the Islanders, with Jeff Zatkoff the backup.
Pittsburgh is on the verge of clinching its 10th straight playoff appearance, and Fleury has been key. He has a 35-17-6 record in 58 games with a 2.29 goals-against average and .921 save percentage.
