Feb 08, 2018, 09:38
Fleury played 13 seasons in Pittsburgh and won the Stanley Cup in 2009, 2016 and 2017.
It was a tough decision to let Fleury go, but Pittsburgh had to do it. He said he misses his Pittsburgh friends, is grateful for the opportunity the Knights have given him and he's excited about what they've accomplished to date with an National Hockey League expansion record 35 wins and 74 points.
With the Penguins able to protect only one goaltender in the expansion draft, Fleury waived his no-trade clause and was taken by the Golden Knights.
Here is a look at the tribute video the Penguins put together to welcome back Fleury.
Fleury stopped 24 shots in that December game, the first meeting between the teams.
"I think it's different from every game I've ever played", Fleury told reporters Monday in Pittsburgh. "I want to remember it and remember my time here". Keith Kinkaid stopped 15 shots to get the win for the Devils while Casey DeSmith allowed three goals on 38 shots to get the loss for the Penguins.
Evgeni Malkin and Phil Kessel scored goals for the Penguins in the third period.
Kessel extended the lead to 5-2 a little more than three minutes later on a one-touch, backdoor feed from Malkin. Ryan Reaves, Ian Cole, and Jake Guentzel scored goals for the Pittsburgh Penguins in the second period.
Matt Murray, Fleury's former understudy in Pittsburgh, made 21 saves to top his mentor.
Reilly Smith paced the Golden Knights with a pair of goals with Ryan Carpenter and Alex Tuch also lighting the lamp. The Western Conference leaders have 20 wins in their last 28 games.
Fleury regained the starting job when Murray aggravated an injury during warm-ups in the first game of the playoffs.
