Marc-Andre Fleury ties an NHL Legend with last night's win

The Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues continued their series last night. The series was tied 1-1 after the teams split the games in Minnesota before the series shifted to St. Louis. There were many questions heading into the playoffs surrounding the Wild. Many fans weren't sure that starting Fleury was the right call, especially after Cam Talbot went 13 consecutive games without a loss.

After giving up 4 goals in game 1, Fleury has turned things around and only given up 3 goals combined in the last 2 games. Over that span he's stopped 61 of 64 shots he's faced and he has had a calming impact on the entire Wild team. But last night's win was special for another reason for Fleury, as it was actually a historical victory.

Last night, Marc-Andre Fleury made 29 saves earning his 92nd career playoff victory, tying him with Edmonton Oilers' Legend, Grant Fuhr. Fuhr and Fleury currently sit 3rd all-time on the playoff victory list, trailing only Martin Brodeur (113) and all-time leader, Patrick Roy (151).




Fleury will not be able to catch Roy, but with a strong showing both this year and next, it's possible Fleury will end his career in 2nd place on the all-time list.
