A Golden Night for the Golden Knights

BC-HKN--Golden Knights-Kings, 1st Ld-Writethru,424

Marc-Andre Fleury on Tuesday had 31 saves for his 12th career playoff shutout as the Vegas Golden Knights became the first expansion team in the 100-year history of the National Hockey League to sweep a playoff series in their first season with a 1-0 victory over hosts the Los Angeles Kings.

What I'm talking about is that Vegas was able to make plays with the puck the Kings were not.

The Vegas Golden Knights made history on Tuesday night by beating the Los Angeles Kings 1-0 to complete a sweep of their first-round playoff series.

"We're still a few wins away from this being a great story", Fleury said.

"It was a tight series, low scoring on both sides, it was a quick and awesome series, both teams were defensive and taking care of business", Fleury said. That success can be tributed to veteran goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, a former Pittsburgh Penguin and three-time Stanley Cup victor.

All of this is to say that there were still questions about Fleury's ability to get the job done in the post-season even after he backstopped the Golden Knights to top spot in the Pacific Division on the strength of a 29-13-4 record with a career-best.927 SP, 2.24 goals-against average and four shutouts. "It all started when we went 8-2 in our first 10 games".

The online gambling site has the Golden Knights at +450, just ahead of the Nashville Predators, who were the favorites entering the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Vegas' seven goals are two fewer than any other team has scored in a best-of-seven sweep in National Hockey League history."It feels great", Marchessault said. Fleury denied Kopitar with an outstanding glove save in the third period of Game 4. However, his offense only scored three goals during that time. If the Sharks win their series, they will take on the Las Vegas Knights for the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. He followed that up with a.921 SP against the rival Washington Capitals, pitching a shutout in the seventh and deciding game to send Pittsburgh to the Eastern Conference final. The Pittsburgh Penguins did so in 1970 against the Oakland Seals, and MLB's Boston Braves pulled off the feat in 1914 against the Philadelphia Athletics.A big reason for Vegas' success this season and in the playoffs so far has been the play of goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury, who was selected by Vegas in the expansion draft after he helped the Penguins win the Stanley Cup three times. "Tonight was our best game and created the most quality chances, just didn't finish off". In Tuesday's game, he had 31 saves.
