Goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was a bit rusty as Penguins training camp opened.

That likely is to be expected after an offseason that stretched to nearly five months, longer than the Penguins are used to, after a first-round exit in the playoffs. It was so long that Fleury was able to rest, go on safari in Africa, train and still get a little antsy for things to get rolling again.

A little rustiness is not a bad thing necessarily for Fleury, if previous years are any indication.

"Usually, I'm not that good in camp," Fleury said. "But, last year, I had one of my best training camps, and the start of the season was not good."
