The Vancouver Canucks really don’t like playing against Marc–Andre Fleury.
Last night, the goalie helped the Vegas Golden Knights to secure a 5-3 victory, now leading the Western Conference semifinal series 3-1. They now can advance with a win Tuesday.
Marc-Andre Fleury had his 81st career postseason win last night, moving him ahead of Ken Dryden for sole possession for 6th place on the NHL’s all-time list.
Also, it was his first appearance in the playoffs since his agent, Alan Walsh, made the spotlight by posting a drawing of Fleury being stabbed in the back with a sword that had “DeBoer” engraved on it. It was a reference to head coach Peter DeBoer for not letting the former Penguin play.
However, last night, he was back and made a couple of insane saves.
Former NHL player and current Sportsnet analyst Kevin Bieksa took to Twitter following the Golden Knights game with a great observation on Fleury’s performance.
