07:43 AM ET 02.26 | While international hockey headlined the game over the past few weeks, Pittsburgh Penguins goalie Marc-Andre Fleury had some time to work on a mask dedicated to his NHL city's team. If you're going to represent for Steeltown in Soldier Field, home of the NFL's Chicago Bears, you might as well look ready for some football. Fleury's longtime mask artist Stephane Bergeron painted up his special Stadium Series mask to resemble a Steelers helmet for the Penguins' outdoor game versus the Chicago Blackhawks on Saturday. The pressure now shifts to Corey Crawford's mask designer and his ability to artistically capture the "Super Bowl Shuffle" onto a CCM. Reports that defenceman Olli Maatta will wear a Polamalu wig for the occasion remain unconfirmed.

Fleury's will be done in Chicago as it is in Pittsburgh?

Wish I knew how to post pictures, but I kind of like the new mask. It does have that "Steeler" look to it. As far as Maatta wearing a Polamalu wig, I just don't know.

If MAF plays anything like the Steelers ..... the Pens might want to put in a call to Buffalo about Miller!

If there is a Penguin player who is fat and vastly overrated then he should wear the Polamalu wig.

Or ready for retirement.

Too many outdoor games. One a year is enough.

I don't mind them. I wouldn't pay $2 to go sit 300' from the rink, but they are fun to watch on the telly. They just have to stop tempting fate and leave the warm weather sites out of the mix.

Dodger Stadium worked out better than I expected.

And, that's where you'll find me. Sitting in my comfy chair by the fire place in front of my TV with my favorite bevys on hand, instead of freezing my arse .... to see nothing.

He has 1 or 2 more years in him (not at his current pay scale).

Then a 5 year wait for his induction into the HOF.

Up until the last couple years he was arguably the best safety in the league. Injuries and age have caught up to him though and unless he makes a big turnaround this year, I don't see him finishing his contract with Pittsburgh.

I thought he played well last year. Blowing up plenty of plays, as well as forcing some big turnovers. Something the Steelers have been lacking the past few years.

They used more as a 5'th linebacker, than as a Safety. If they stick with approach, I think he can still be productive.

Well........lets see how the guy who should have been number three on Canada will play...

I still like they guy, but he did miss some tackles which was unheard of in his younger years. Seems like him and Timmons are almost interchangeable now. I was thinking if they drafted a good safety they could move Troy up to linebacker and playing him like they did with Harrison. Steelers need another linebacker to fill in when Woodley is hurt half the season as usual.

I am so glad that MAF had no part of the Olympics. He wasn't the same goalie when he came back from Vancouver. He has only shown flashes of his old self since then and has tanked in every playoff.

Well you see him more than I do, but I'm surprised as they won and he had no worries as he didnt play. Not that there is absolutely no pressure, but is that it, cause he's been good in reg season.

I guess these playoffs will tell.....
