Fleury now owns a 9-3-2 record with a 1.77 goals-against-average and a .943 save percentage this season.

Deryk Engelland's recently signed one-year, $1.5 million deal includes an additional $1 million in performance bonuses.

In other words, Engelland could end up coming with a $2.5 million cap hit in 2018-19 if he meets his performance bonus requirements. That's a moderate improvement over his 2017-18 contract, which has a $1 million base salary and another $1 million that can be earned in performance bonuses. Engelland has played a valuable role for the Golden Knights this season as he has three goals, 13 points, and a plus-nine rating in 41 contests while averaging 19:39 minutes per game.

The Vegas Golden Knights have not allowed a power play goal in their last 23 attempts.

The Golden Knights have jumped up to 13th overall in penalty killing efficiency with their recent outstanding play. "When your PK is good, it starts with goaltending," Knights coach Gerard Gallant said Sunday after the team’s 40-minute practice at City National Arena. "We talk about special teams a lot. They can win you a lot of hockey games." It's just another reason to love the expansion team this season.

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 27 of 30 shots in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Edmonton Oilers.

Fleury's best save of the night probably came midway through the first period when he got across to stop Leon Draisaitl and quickly covered up the puck to not give away a rebound. Unfortunately, Fleury couldn't hold the third period lead and he eventually gave up the game-winning goal to Darnell Nurse off a two-on-one in the extra period. Fleury's record drops to 9-2-2 with a 1.82 goals against average and .942 save percentage.
