Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury got the crowd on its feet with a remarkable stick save on Washington Capitals forward Evgeny Kuznetsov at 18:29 of the second period in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference Second Round at PPG Paints Arena on Monday. 

From a near split out at the top of the crease, Fleury reached back over his right leg and got the heel of his stick down to make the save. Penguins forward Patric Hornqvist offered some backup by clearing the loose puck with his open hand.

Fleury was all smiles after the play was over and got some love from his teammates for keeping the Capitals from adding to their 1-0 lead.
