Marc-Andre Fleury pets his post after it saves him from Rangers goal (GIF)

Sometimes it's better to be lucky than good. Luckily for the Pittsburgh Penguins, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury was a little bit of both through two periods in Monday's Game 3 vs. the New York Rangers.

Along with his 26 saves, the Rangers hit three goal posts, including one by winger Mats Zuccarello that plunked the crossbar and then walked a tightrope down the goal line. While the on-ice officials were waiting for a video review to confirm it didn't cross the line, Fleury took a moment to show his appreciation for the pipe:
