Marc-Andre Fleury pitched a shutout in the win or go home game 7 of the Eastern Conference Semifinals against the Washington Capitals. During the game the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender made some amazing saves. Fleury made 29 saves in the game but none better than the one he made with the handle of his stick on Alexander Ovechkin in the 2nd period. After the save Fleury had an interesting way of showing his stick how much he appreciated it.
Let’s check in to see how Twitter reacted to this.
That Ovechkin one-timer went off Fleury's stick shaft. Wow.

Alex Ovechkin was this close to tying it up on this one-timer. MAF saved it with the shaft of his stick. pic.twitter.com/VuM1DzX9ga

Just straight up stroking it like a champ. But after a save like that do you blame him.
