If it were one or two games with Fleury I could understand why some fans are asking "why?". But his play has been dropping the last four or five games. I believe Therrien has enough confidence in Thibault. On top of that, I feel he actually feels Fleury needs a 'longer' break.
It's strange though, the last time Fleury played the Panthers he shut them out. I do have to wonder if Therrien is better off playing Fleury against the Panthers and then playing Thibault against the Bolts? Who knows though? Much like with Therrien's trading/player decisions, I really can't complain about Therrien "plugging" the players he has been dealt. I'll take his word for it.
