Penguins goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury assists fellow goalie guild member Calvin Pickard who forgot his water bottle prior to the OT period

  • 00:29 •

Colorado Avalanche goaltender Calvin Pickard won his first start of the season against the Pittsburgh Penguins on Monday, but he nearly lost his precious water bottle at the start of overtime. Fortunately, Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was there to offer a helping hand. 

When Fleury arrived at his net prior to the start of overtime, he found an extra water bottle on top of the net. It belonged to Pickard, who had left his bottle on top of the goal, which he had defended during the third period. Fleury showed his sportsmanship by sliding the bottle the length of the ice to Pickard. 

Fleury's gesture drew a sheepish smile from Pickard, who made 28 saves in Colorado's 4-3 overtime win.
