1. Fleury to steal a game or two
The Vegas Golden Knights have had to overcome their fair share of adversity inside The Bubble, including riding out a brewing goalie controversy.
That sparked a stunning Tweet from Fleury’s longtime agent Allan Walsh, who showed off his Photoshop skills with a rather graphic picture featuring Fleury with a sword going through his back.
Oh, and if that wasn’t enough then the sword had DeBoer’s name emblazoned on its blade.
The Golden Knights did brush that particular episode aside but this storyline won’t go away anytime soon.
However, while it would be fair to question if Fleury’s days are numbered in Sin City, that speculation can wait.
After all, the Golden Knights are all in to win a cup and Fleury still has a key role to play in any championship this year.
One of the main reasons why Fleury is a lock for the Hockey Hall of Fame when he does eventually hang up his skates is his sparkling postseason record, which includes three Stanley Cups and 81 Playoff wins.
And we predict that the Golden Knights will call on Fleury to come in and steal a game in this series, if not two.
It is somewhat an obvious prediction given that Fleury is a proven performer on the big stage, someone who has ice in his veins when the pressure is really on.
And, with the Stars boasting a plethora of potent weapons, we think that Fleury will stand on his head in at least one game, pull off unbelievable save after unbelievable save to steal a game or two and send a reminder to the front office that he’s still got a role to play this year.
