Stanley Cup Final 2018: Golden Knights’ Fleury shows off puck-handling

Marc-Andre Fleury is putting together one of the best statistical runs for a goaltender in the history of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. But don't think that means he's a one-trick pony.

With the Golden Knights preparing for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Final against the Washington Capitals on Wednesday, Fleury got out of the crease and his goaltender gear to show off his puck-handling and shooting skills (even attempting to impersonate teammate William Karlsson), drawing cheers from the fans in attendance.

There's no Fleury has become a favorite among Golden Knights fans. He has the highest-selling jersey, according to Fanatics and even has a dog named after him — Bark-Andre Furry. Vegas has often made its practices open to the public, drawing capacity crowds, and Fleury has done his best to make those sessions entertaining. In the first practice after Vegas' 6-4 win against the Capitals in Game 1, Fleury jokingly flipped the net over during a four v. zero drill in the offensive zone so he wouldn't allow any more goals.

The 33-year-old didn't have his turn in his best numbers in Game 1, when he surrendered four goals on 28 shots. But entering the game Wednesday, Fleury has a .942 save-percentage in this postseason, the fourth-highest of all time for goalies who appeared in at least 15 playoff games.
