Marc-Andre Fleury had the magic act in Vegas on Tuesday night.
The veteran goalkeeper earned his 450th career win with the aid of a spectacular save against Toronto forward Nic Petan.
With the Golden Knights clinging to a 3-2 lead, the Maple Leafs' Ilya Mikheyev ripped a shot that clanged off the crossbar. Petan won the race to the puck and immediately fired a shot that looked like a sure goal.
Caught out of position, Fleury dove back toward the net and snared Petan's shot.
“You know, a little lucky because I didn’t stop the first one, it was off the crossbar, right?" said Fleury, who made 31 saves. "It’s good when you get those secondary opportunities to redeem yourself."
Fleury is a fun-loving guy. "I just enjoyed it," he added. "You know, (had) a little giggle, a little smile, right? (I was) just happy it didn’t go in."
The Maple Leafs didn't enjoy it. They have now lost six in a row, with a 0-5-1 record since Mitch Marner was injured. The Toronto fan base seems to be waiting for some form of shake-up.
Fleury, 34, is only the seventh goalie to reach 450 wins. His penchant for amazing saves is why he has enjoyed consistent success in the NHL. He is three wins short of tying Henrik Lundqvist for sixth on the all-time win list.
Fleury has an 11-5-1 record with a 2.49 goals-against average and .921 save percentage this season.
