Fleury was the first goalie off during morning skate, indicating that he'll start in Monday's home game versus the Wild, Jesse Granger of The Athletic reports. Fleury has been phenomenal this year, recording a .941 save percentage and a 9-3-0 record, so he should retain the No. 1 job even when Robin Lehner (upper body) gets the green light. The Wild head to Vegas with a six-game win streak in tow, and they've averaged 4.5 goals per game in that stretch.
Fleury yielded two goals on 30 shots in Saturday's 3-2 overtime win over the Ducks. Fleury was steady throughout the game in a close battle against the Ducks. The 36-year-old kept things even into overtime, where a second goal by William Karlsson lifted the Golden Knights to victory. Fleury improved to 9-3-0 with a 1.59 GAA and a .941 save percentage in 12 games. Saturday also marked Fleury's 100th regular-season win with the Golden Knights. Next up is a two-game homestand versus the red-hot Wild on Monday and Wednesday.
Per David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal, Fleury was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, indicating he'll be between the pipes for Saturday's road game against the Ducks. Fleury was unbeatable in his last start Monday against the Avalanche, stopping all 34 shots he faced en route to his eighth win and third shutout of the season. The 36-year-old backstop will try to earn a second straight victory in a road matchup with an Anaheim team that's 3-5-2 at home this year.
Fleury and the Golden Knight's game versus San Jose on Thursday has been postponed following the news that an unnamed Sharks player entered the league's COVID-19 protocols Wednesday. Fleury will have to wait for Saturday's game against Anaheim for his next potential opportunity to get between the pipes. He's been one of the best netminders in the league this year, having compiled an 8-3-0 record with three shutouts while posting an impressive 1.55 GAA and .942 save percentage in 11 appearances.
Fleury posted a 34-save shutout in Monday's 3-0 win over the Avalanche. The first period was tightly played, but the Golden Knights' offense took over in the second.

The 36-year-old improved to 8-3-0 with a 1.55 GAA and a .942 save percentage through 11 games. Fleury will look to stay strong Thursday versus the Sharks, unless Robin Lehner (upper body) is able to return.
