Fleury Nets Two Points In Flames Win

Calgary Flames defeated the Florida Panthers 5-2, in their pre-season game. Flames right winger Theoren Fleury scored a goal and added an assist in his second game of his comeback. He made get his chance to play with the Flames during the season if he keeps this up.

Fleury assist came when he made a beautiful pass to Daymond Langkow in the second period. Fleury rushed the net, looking for a rebound, but Langkow's shot trickled passed the Florida net minder. The crowd at Pengrowth Saddledome went wild when his assist was announced through the public announcement system. In the third period, Fleury made a nifty move and scored on the backhand, five hole. Again, the crowd went wild with chants of "THEO! THEO! THEO!".

Funny thing is, NHL.com has the assist listed as "more" and the goal listed as "Unknown Backhand". Fleury is not listed on the NHL.com roster.

Two points in two game, plus a shootout winner. I know it is just pre-season, but this season could be fun to watch. Maybe I should head up to Calgary to see a game. Who knows, maybe I will get a chance to Fleury play again.
