Dan Bylsma is going with Brent Johnson in goal this Friday night at CEC against the Islanders and possibly even again on Saturday at Philadelphia, according to the Post-Gazette.
Fleury's first three games this season have been horocious. BJ's one game was solid, if not very solid. Some wouldn't even hedge on the solidity of BJ's game against the Devils and would just call it, "real solid." It's way, way too early to talk about a benching of Fleury for any more than a game here and there, but I am in total support of starting BJ this Friday. The Pens desperately need to win a game at home before this new arena thing becomes an albatross around their neck all season (I don't know what an albatross is, but people always say it is around a neck). With the unsteadiness of Fleury, BJ gives the Pens a better chance of winning tomorrow.
We stand behind Bylsma on this call.
|Get to your game, BJ.|
