Fleury's slump creates Penguins goalie dilemma @NHLdotcom

PITTSBURGH (AP) - Nearly a month into the season, the Pittsburgh Penguins' top goalie hasn't lost a game in regulation. He is second in the NHL in goals-against average and save percentage. When he's played, the Penguins have recorded 11 of a possible 12 points.

The dilemma: He's not Marc-Andre Fleury, the man who won the Stanley Cup with a brilliant Game 7 against Detroit less than two years ago and was a Canadian Olympian last winter.

Backup Brent Johnson's strong play - he's 5-0-1 with a 1.16 goals-against average - is creating a tricky situation for coach Dan Bylsma as the Penguins begin a three-game road trip Wednesday in Dallas.
