Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury reached an impressive milestone last night, when his team won 5-1 against the Carolina Hurricanes. Fleury registered his 386th win in the NHL, passing Mike Vernon for 14th all-time on the NHL's career goalie wins list. With their win last night, the Golden Knights took the first overall position in the NHL, one point ahead of the Tampa Bay Lightning. Tampa Bay can take the first position back with a win tonight against the Chicago Blackhawks.
Drafted first overall by the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2003, Fleury started 708 games in the NHL so far, posting a record of 386-219-70 with a 2.56 goal-against average and a .913 save percentage. This season, the 33-year old netminder has a record of 11-3-2 with a 1.68 goal-against average and a .946 save percentage.
The Golden Knights are currently first in the Pacific division with a record of 31-11-4. They will play their next game on Tuesday against the Columbus Blue Jackets.
