Fleury recorded 26 saves in a 5-4 overtime win over Minnesota.
It wasn't always pretty for Fleury, and the Golden Knights needed two goals in the final 7:20 just to force the extra session, but he managed to emerge with a second consecutive overtime victory and his third straight win overall. The 36-year-old owns a sparkling 10-3-0 record with an equally impressive 1.77 GAA and .935 save percentage, both of which would shatter his previous career bests. Fleury and the Golden Knights will have a day off before Wednesday's rematch with the Wild.
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. Fleury made their production stand for a win. It's his second shutout in four games against the Avalanche, and his third donut of the year. 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.
Fleury will guard the cage in Monday's road contest against Colorado, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Fleury will make his seventh consecutive start while Robin Lehner (upper body) remains unavailable. He's been terrific during that span, recording a 2.02 GAA and .929 save percentage despite a 3-3-0 record. The 36-year-old has coughed up six goals on 94 shots in his last three starts against the Avalanche.
Fleury surrendered three goals on 39 shots in Saturday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche in Lake Tahoe.
According to Dan Rosen of NHL.com, Fleury is 0-3-0 in these special outdoor contests, but this was his first open-air affair with Vegas, and the over eight-hour delay between the first and second periods due to poor ice conditions couldn't have helped his focus. He could get a chance to exact revenge on the Avs starting with Monday's game in Denver. Flower has blossomed early this season, as evidenced by his immaculate 7-3-0 record, 1.71 GAA and .935 save percentage.
Fleury will start between the pipes in Saturday's outdoor game against the Avalanche, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journalreports.
Fleury has played extremely well in the month of February, compiling a 4-2-0 record while posting an admirable 1.84 GAA and .931 save percentage. He'll try to earn his eighth win of the season in an outdoor matchup with a Colorado club that just potted three goals on 25 shots on Fleury in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Vegas.
Fleury yielded three goals on 25 shots in Tuesday's 3-2 loss to the Avalanche.
Fleury wasn't able to recapture his shutout form from Sunday's 1-0 win, instead allowing one goal in each period Tuesday. The 36-year-old dropped to 7-2-0 with a 1.56 GAA and a .937 save percentage in nine games. Robin Lehner (upper body) may be healthy in time for Saturday's game versus the Avalanche, which will be an outdoor contest at Lake Tahoe. If Lehner can't play, expect a well-rested Fleury to start again.
Per Jesse Granger of The Athletic, Fleury was the first goalie off the ice at morning skating, indicating he'll be between the pipes for Tuesday's home game against the Avalanche.
Fleury was fantastic in his last start Sunday against Colorado, turning aside all 30 shots he faced en route to his seventh victory and second shutout of the season. The 36-year-old backstop will attempt to pick up a third straight win in a rematch with the same Avalanche squad Tuesday.
Fleury posted a 30-save shutout in Sunday's 1-0 win over the Avalanche.
Fleury was locked in throughout the game. The Avalanche got more comfortable later in the contest, but Fleury was there with some big saves when needed. It's the 63rd career shutout for the 36-year-old goalie, and it's his second shutout of the year. Fleury improved to 7-1-0 with a 1.38 GAA and a .944 save percentage through eight games. It'd be tough to name a more impressive goalie through the first month of the season. If Robin Lehner can't play Tuesday, expect Fleury to earn a fifth consecutive starting nod.
Fleury led the Golden Knights onto the ice and will protect the home goal in Sunday's game versus the Avalanche, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Fleury will make his fourth straight start. He's 2-1-0 with six goals allowed on 75 shots over his previous three outings. The Avalanche are coming off a layoff from a COVID-19 outbreak, but Fleury's played well enough this year to be trusted in fantasy even in what could be a high-scoring battle.
Fleury made 24 saves in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Sharks.
It was another strong performance from the 36-year-old netminder, who is handling No. 1 duties for Vegas while Robin Lehner (upper body) is on the mend. On the season, Fleury has turned back the clock with a 6-1-0 record, 1.58 GAA and .934 save percentage through seven games, and while those ratios aren't sustainable, in the short term his fantasy value is sky high given the talent around him on the Golden Knights' roster.
Fleury will defend the road net in Saturday's game versus the Sharks, Sheng Peng of San Jose Hockey Now reports.
Robin Lehner (upper body) is sitting out, so Oskar Dansk will serve as Fleury's backup. Fleury has been the better goalie this year anyway, recording a .929 save percentage and a 5-1-0 record. He's an elite fantasy option Saturday, as the Sharks rank 25th in the league with 2.50 goals per game.
Fleury allowed one goal on 28 shots in a 1-0 loss to the Ducks on Thursday.
Fleury was a late replacement for Robin Lehner (upper body), as the latter was initially expected to start Thursday's game. Fleury was prepared though, with only a Maxime Comtois shot from the slot beating him in the third period. The 36-year-old Fleury took his first loss of the year in unfortunate fashion, dropping to 5-1-0 with a 1.68 GAA and a .929 save percentage in six outings. Depending on how Lehner progresses in the next two days, Fleury may be in line to start again Saturday in San Jose.
Contrary to a previous report, Fleury will start Thursday's game versus the Ducks, David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal reports.
Robin Lehner was initially set to start Thursday's game, but the plan changed prior to pregame warmups. Lehner won't dress as the backup -- Oscar Dansk will serve as Fleury's understudy. Fleury has yet to lose this season, with a 5-0-0 record, a 1.80 GAA and a .920 save percentage. This is the first time he's made consecutive starts.
Fleury allowed four goals on 23 shots in a 5-4 win over the Ducks on Tuesday.
Fleury let a 4-1 lead slip away in the third period, but he was bailed out by Zach Whitecloud's game-winner. The 36-year-old Fleury has had few missteps this year, and he remains perfect at 5-0-0 with a 1.80 GAA and a .920 save percentage through five starts. Should the Golden Knights' goalie rotation continue Thursday versus the Ducks, Fleury would be Robin Lehner's backup in that contest.
Per David Schoen of the Las Vegas Review Journal, Fleury was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate, which suggests he'll start between the pipes in Tuesday's home game against Anaheim.
Fleury has been fantastic this season, opening the year with four straight wins while posting an impressive 1.26 GAA and .944 save percentage. He'll try to remain unbeaten in a favorable home matchup with a Ducks team that's averaging just 1.85 goals per game this campaign, last in the NHL.
Fleury yielded two goals on 29 shots in Friday's 5-2 win over the Kings.
Fleury was perfect through the first two periods, and the Golden Knights tallied five times to easily take the win. This is just the second time in four starts that Fleury has allowed multiple goals, and he has won all four of them with five goals allowed on 90 shots. The 36-year-old is still expected to split time with Robin Lehner, but fantasy managers will want Fleury in their lineups when he plays based on his early-season results.
