1. Marc-Andre Fleury
Could there really have been another choice for our first Star of the Game against the Edmonton Oilers?
Put simply, no.
Because, without the heroic efforts of Marc-Andre Fleury, the Golden Knights would have been dead and buried in the first period.
With the Oilers absolutely piling on the pressure and peppering the Vegas goal with a barrage of shots, Fleury stood on his head and bailed his team out time and time again.
He absolutely robbed the red hot Leon Draisaitl with a spectacular pad save in the opening frame, and that set the tone for the rest of the night.
Fleury gave his team the best possible chance to win and they delivered, clearly inspired by the exploits of their future Hall of Famer.
And the highlight of the night came in the third period when Fleury somehow denied Connor McDavid from recording his 32nd goal of the year despite being sprawled out on the ice.
This was another dominant display from Fleury who has been lights out as of late, going 5-0-0 in his last five starts with a .942 Save Percentage and a 1.60 Goals Against Average.
Fleury moved up to 17th on the All-Time Shutout list with 61st, tying Turk Broda, while the 35-year-old leads the NHL in shutouts over the past two seasons with 13.
This was a vintage Marc-Andre Fleury display and the veteran goalie is getting back to the peak of his powers at just the right time.
