Marc-Andre Fleury

The recent Stanley Cup Final featured a goalie matchup between Braden Holtby of the Washington Capitals and Marc-Andre Fleury of the Vegas Golden Knights. And while many statistics were used to favor one goalie or the other, a surprising statistic favored both. It turns out, Stanley Cup winning goalies aren’t the regular season’s ironman goalies.

Last season at this time Marc-Andre Fleury was in the same spot. Two rounds complete in the Stanley Cup playoffs, eight wins down and eight to go, and Fleury was the odds-on favorite to take home the Conn Smythe Trophy. But that was in Pittsburgh. He was eventually replaced in net and the Penguins went

For the second straight game, the San Jose Sharks and Vegas Golden Knights finished regulation tied at three. For the second straight game, the Sharks overcame a two goal deficit and tied the game. And, for the second straight game, the Sharks got their most effective offense from power forwards. More specifically, from power forwards

Looking back at the players that NHL teams left “unprotected” and thereby eligible for the upstart Vegas Golden Knights to select for their expansion roster brings a great sense of irony. For example, it’s ironic that Marc-Andre Fleury, previously with the Pittsburgh Penguins, and James Neal of the Nashville Predators would both be unprotected and selected by

Every hockey fan is aware of how successful the Vegas Golden Knights are in their inaugural season, outperforming expectations by a wide margin. Although projected to be a .500 team at best, they are in first place in the Pacific Division and on the cusp of clinching a playoff spot. Most expected them to be

The Pittsburgh Penguins — at least for the past few decades — have been a franchise known for their offense. When an organization is lucky enough to have multiple generational talents like Mario Lemieux, Jaromir Jagr, Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin it isn’t surprising to see that portion of the game demand the most attention. However, they’ve

For more than a decade, Marc-Andre Fleury was the unquestioned starting goaltender for the Pittsburgh Penguins. Everybody remembers his spectacular Cup-clinching save on Nick Lidstrom; the native of Sorel-Tracey, QC has always had a knack for theatrics. Professional sports can be a cruel business, and nobody knows this better than Fleury. Not long ago, it would’ve

At the start of the season, the first general manager in Vegas Golden Knights’ history – George McPhee – said that his team was going to be competitive in their inaugural season. “I think it’s going to be a pretty good team,” he said in a piece by NHL.com’s Nicholas Cotsonika. “We’re happy that we’ve

Repeating as Stanley Cup champs isn’t easy. In fact, before the Pittsburgh Penguins’ ridiculous 2017 run, it hadn’t been done since before the salary cap era, when the Detroit Red Wings repeated as champions in 1998. Of course, the Wings probably spent around $60 million on their team—adjusted for inflation, that’s about $90 million in

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby joined Mario Lemieux and Bernie Parent as the only other players in NHL history to win the Conn Smythe Trophy in back-to-back years. Crosby deserved it, posting eight goals and 27 points in 24 playoff games. But he wasn’t the only member of the Penguins who played at an MVP
