NHL Playoffs: Penguins to Start Marc-Andre Fleury in Game 5 Against Lightning

PITTSBURGH -- Marc-Andre Fleury is back on the job for the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Coach Mike Sullivan said Sunday that Fleury will start Game 5 of the Eastern Conference final on Sunday night against Tampa Bay.

This will be Fleury's first start of the postseason.

He last started on March 31 before being sidelined with his second concussion of the season. Fleury played the third period in relief of rookie Matt Murray during Game 4 on Friday, stopping all seven shots he faced in a 4-3 loss that evened the series at two games.

The Penguins also announced Sunday that defenseman Trevor Daley is out for the remainder of the playoffs after suffering a broken ankle in Game 4. Daley, acquired in a trade with Chicago last December, had one goal and five assists during the postseason.
