It was a huge win on Wednesday for the Vegas Golden Knights who shutout the Edmonton Oilers 3-0 at T-Mobile Arena.
Marc-Andre Fleury was the star of the show for the Vegas Golden Knights as he stopped all 29 shots fired at him, recording the 61st shutout of his career in the process.
And the Knights needed Fleury at the top of his game given that the Oilers had absolutely dominated the first period.
They outshot the Golden Knights 12-9 in the opening 20-minutes of play, while maintaining 3:23 minutes of possession in the offensive zone.

But Fleury absolutely stood on his head and he pulled off some stellar stops, including a stunning pad stop to absolutely rob Leon Draisaitl.
Fleury’s heroics gave the Knights the platform to try and get the job done in the offensive zone, a mission they accomplished.
And the game was iced midway through the final frame when Shea Theodore hammered home a laser of a shot from the point.
This was a real statement win for the Golden Knights who are now riding a seven-game winning streak, and if they win on Friday against the Buffalo Sabres they would tie the franchise record for the longest win streak that was set between Dec. 14, 2017 to Jan. 2, 2018.
