Despite taking quite a beating against the Islanders Tuesday, goalie Marc-Andre Fleury practiced Wednesday and will be available for Thursday night's rematch in Long Island. Fleury took a shot to the jaw, was knocked over once and had his mask dislodged in a collision with defenseman Paul Martin on Tuesday.

The Penguins maintained he was pulled from the game because of an uncharacteristically poor performance, not health reasons. This was confirmed when Fleury practiced Wednesday.

"It's good," he said. "Couple of good hits. We're lucky. We play with good helmets."
