Dreger: Full marks for Marc-Andre Fleury

I did a quick tour through the Penguins' dressing room following Game 3 and Marc-Andre Fleury's teammates gave him full marks for holding them in the game in the second period.

Pittsburgh only had four shots on goal in that middle frame, probably their worst period of the series thus far, but they rebounded because they re-focused during the second intermission.

Penguins head coach Dan Bylsma is a pretty calm guy. He walked into the dressing room and he didn't make a big deal, saying 'fellas, you're running around out there. Relax and let's go play our best period.' And they did.

Man Advantage

Everyone in Mellon Arena saw it; unfortunately the four officials on the ice didn't.

The Penguins caught a huge break as they had six skaters on the ice for at least 20 seconds in the Wings' offensive zone late in the period; however neither referees Paul Devorski nor Dennis LaRue noticed the infraction.

Why didn't they see it?

For starters, no one between the benches was hollering and no one on the benches was hollering. Ordinarily, you have the assistant coaches and the players from the Red Wings saying 'too many men' and then the officials start counting heads. That didn't happen.

Not an excuse. A mistake was made.

Foot Soldier

Look for Pavel Datsyuk to be back in the Red Wings lineup for Game 4 Thursday night. Head coach Mike Babcock gave us every indication going into Game 3 that Datsyuk would likely be able to play for Game 4.

A finalist for the Hart Trophy, Datsyuk suffered a swollen foot blocking a shot in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals against Chicago.
