Vid: Marc-Andre Fleury Gives Up Goal from Center Ice against Canucks

Marc-Andre Fleury is 7-0 on the season.

It's a perfect record but it hasn't come without a few mistakes. Today, Fleury made his mistake early, by badly botching this 100-foot slapper from Canucks' Alexander Edler. Watch as the puck kicks up off his chest protector, bloops up over his head, lands behind him and spins over the goal line.

In the video (above) it actually looks like Fleury sees the puck. Clearly he didn't.

But not to worry, Fleury stopped the one the shot that counted on Saturday against Vancouver. When he denied Ryan Kesler in the shootout the Penguins had their fifth home win against zero losses, and Fleury had his 7-0 record despite this extremely soft goal.
