Fleury turned aside 23 of 25 shots in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Islanders. The veteran netminder continues to roll, and Fleury is now 10-2 over his last 12 starts with a 2.34 GAA and .919 save percentage. The Golden Knights are surging back towards the top of the Pacific Division, and Fleury's huge workload gives him tremendous fantasy value while they do so.
Fleury will start in goal on the road Wednesday, facing the cross-conference Islanders, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports. Fleury is tied with Frederik Andersen for the league lead in wins at 17 apiece, though Vegas' go-to netminder has appeared in three more games than the Danish goalie for the Buds. Flower, who has made 28 starts, will turn his attention to an Islanders club that ranks second in the league in converting high-danger scoring chances at even strength at 57.75 percent.
Fleury allowed two goals on 24 shots in a 4-2 victory against the Stars on Sunday. The 34-year-old continues to be a little inconsistent, but he leads all goaltenders in starts, wins, minutes and shutouts. Fleury has won a lot lately, going 9-2-0 in his last 11 games. During that time, he's steadied himself, posting a .918 save percentage.

Vegas' celebrated netminder boasts a stellar .929 save percentage at home compared to a wholly substandard .888 save mark outside of Sin City. Fleury will take on a Stars team that will counter with Ben Bishop and boasts a robust conference record of 10-2-2.
Fleury turned aside 20 of 25 shots in Saturday's 5-1 loss to the Kings. The 34-year-old has been hot lately, winning eight of his last nine starts, but he came out flat Saturday afternoon and the Knights' offense couldn't bail him out. Fleury still has an 11-6-0 record and .913 save percentage over 17 outings since the beginning of November, and barring a serious injury he appears headed for his 10th career 30-win season.
