Marc-Andre Fleury makes incredible stick save

Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury historically didn't enjoy playing in New Jersey.

In fact, he had won just one of his previous nine appearances against the Devils on the road.

However, he reversed the course of history on Wednesday night, when he made what can be considered a save-of-the-year candidate en route to a 5-2 victory.

When Adam Henrique's shot was deflected just in front of Fleury and headed for a certain goal, he made magic happen.

That's right, he stood up, scrambled, twisted and swatted it away with his stick before it could enter the goal. Talk about hand-eye coordination.

It's also worth noting that he entered the game in relief of Matt Murray, who left with a lower body injury earlier in the game.

Fleury made 23 saves on the night, but none compared to the special one above.

On the season, he has started 20 games with 23 appearances and has gone 11-5-4 with a 3.13 GAA and .908 save percentage.

While he's clearly at the tail-end of his NHL career, plays like the one above remind us all that he still has some skills in between (and outside of) the pipes.
