Marc-Andre Fleury is still experiencing concussion symptoms.

However, he took part in an optional workout on Monday and he is able to face shots from teammates. Fleury won't be cleared to return until his symptoms are completely gone. "It's one of the toughest things I've been through," he said. "Some good days, when you think you're back, and some bad days, when you think it's never going to get fixed. It's a lot of ups and downs. The playoffs are such a fun time of year to play hockey. Every game is so intense, meaningful. It's tough to just be watching." Matt Murray will continue to fill in for the Penguins while Fleury is sidelined.

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) skated on Sunday in his full equipment.

Unfortunately there is no update on Fleury's availability despite skating twice in three days. However Penguins fans should take heart, their main man appears to be improving and nearing his return.
Apr 23 - 1:18 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) skated on Friday.

Fleury wasn't wearing his goaltending gear though, so we wouldn't take this as a sign that he's close to returning. Fortunately for the Penguins, Matt Murray has posted a 0.50 GAA and .979 save percentage in back-to-back wins.
Apr 22 - 1:39 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) didn't skate with the Penguins on Thursday.

Fleury hasn't shared the ice with his teammates so far this week. We would be very surprised if he ended up playing in Game 4 on Thursday.
Apr 21 - 12:00 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) didn't practice Wednesday.

Coach Mike Sullivan said that Fleury "remains day-to-day." He has looked close to returning at times, but it's understandable why the Penguins are being cautious with his concussion.

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) won't play in Game 3 on Tuesday night.

He remains day-to-day with a concussion. Fleury didn't take part in the morning skate.
Apr 19 - 12:21 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) has not been cleared to play by the Penguins medical staff.

Fleury has been practicing for the last week but is still not ready to go. He last played on April 2 and will be a game-time decision Tuesday for Game 3. If he is unable to go, then Jeff Zatkoff will get the start once again.
Apr 17 - 9:42 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury is a game-time decision for Game 2 against the Rangers on Saturday.

Coach Mike Sullivan made that announcement just a few minutes ago. Game 2 starts at 3:00 p.m. ET so we won't have to wait much longer to figure out if Fleury will be in goal or not. The 31-year-old has been sidelined with a concussion since April 2. If he doesn't play on Saturday, look for Jeff Zatkoff to get the start for Pittsburgh.
Apr 16 - 1:30 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) hopes to be ready to play on Saturday in Game 2 versus the New York Rangers.

He describes himself as a "work in progress" and he didn't miss Game 1 on Wednesday because of a setback. Jeff Zatkoff started that game instead and he stopped 35 of 37 shots in a 5-2 victory. Fleury was on the ice for an optional session on Thursday.
Apr 14 - 2:18 PM

Apparently the Penguins knew days in advance that Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) wouldn't be available for Game 1.

Fleury told Jeff Zatkoff on Tuesday that he'd be the Game 1 starter. The Penguins kept that information private though out of a sense of gamesmanship, per coach Mike Sullivan. While it was surprising that Fleury didn't play given that the team's practice on Wednesday made it look like he would, it's not surprising that Sullivan and the Penguins withheld information. In the playoffs especially, this kind of thing is not uncommon.
Apr 14 - 9:14 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) is not with the Pittsburgh Penguins for the pregame warmup.

Fleury took part in the team's Wednesday morning skate and it looked like he would be the team's starting goaltender based on that. The Penguins were calling him a game-time decision though, so this possibility was certainly left on the table. With Matt Murray also sidelined though, it looks like Pittsburgh will be opening the playoffs with Jeff Zatkoff.
Apr 13 - 7:36 PM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) was the first goalie off the ice following the Penguins' morning skate.

Fleury was also in the starters net during the practice. Officially the Penguins are still calling Fleury a game-time decision, but based on what happened Wednesday morning, it seems likely that he will start.
Apr 13 - 11:27 AM

Marc-Andre Fleury (concussion) is feeling good, but remains questionable for Game 1.

Fleury hasn't played since March 31, but he has been practicing recently. If he's not ready to play, Pittsburgh might have to start Jeff Zatkoff because Matt Murray (upper body) is also questionable.
Apr 12 - 1:08 PM

Veteran Pittsburgh goalie Marc-Andre Fleury practiced with the Penguins Monday for the first time since suffering his second concussion of the season.

Rookie goalie Matthew Murray suffered an upper-body injury late in the first period of Pittsburgh's 3-1 loss to the Philadelphia Flyers on Saturday, so the Pens clearly hope Fleury is ready to play in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference First Round against the New York Rangers on Wednesday night. Pittsburgh recalled goalie Tristan Jarry from Wilkes-Barre/Scranton of the AHL on Sunday, but Fleury could play for the first time since March 31. "I skated by myself the past few days, so it was good to get out there with the guys," Fleury said. "It's never easy to watch them … Just [taking it] one day at a time. It was my first practice." Fleury won eight of his final nine starts before sustaining a concussion during a Pittsburgh win over the Nashville Predators. He had given up three goals or fewer in six of his last seven starts.
