The Penguins are heading into Friday’s game on a four-game losing streak, as they have struggled to keep the puck out of their net, and part of that is because of their goalie. In the last four games, Fleury has started in three of them, and has played poorly in each of those games.

In April, Fleury has allowed 12 goals in three games, as the Philadelphia Flyers, Columbus Blue Jackets, and Ottawa Senators have all scored four goals against Fleury this month.

Fleury has played the Islanders three times this season, and his results have been mixed. In the first game of the season, Fleury allowed only one goal in the Penguins’ 3-1 win, but since then he has struggled. In the last two games against the Islanders, Fleury has allowed four goals in a 5-4 shootout loss, and then five goals in their last game.

With Fleury’s struggles of late and his struggles against the Islanders means New York should be able to score some goals in this one.
