Marc-Andre Fleury must have been watching the Olympics because the three-time Stanley Cup-winning goaltender debuted a new stick-handling move Monday night against the Los Angeles Kings.
After a Kings clear during a first period Golden Knights power play, the biscuit bounced off the boards and died outside the trapezoid where Fleury could play the puck.
Fleury, who is a notoriously silly human, decided to mess around as he waited for Colin Miller to retrieve the puck.
Fleury turned his goalie stick into a curling broom. Alas, his stick doesn’t have the same powers and the technique totally didn’t work at all because of this very complicated physics equation: Heavy puck + no velocity = fail.
Fleury’s Canadian curlers didn’t medal in the 2018 Pyeongchang Olympics for the first time since the sport was reintroduced in 1998, but Team USA had the shock of a lifetime. USA’s Team Shuster defeated Olympic favorite Sweden in the gold-medal match.
It took just one sweep to get the win for Shuster’s squad.

Maybe they can teach MAF how to properly sweep and he’ll never have to handle the puck again.
