Fleury, Golden Knights top reeling Penguins

(TSX / STATS) -- LAS VEGAS -- Veteran goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury was endeared by the Pittsburgh Penguins and Vegas Golden Knights fans, and had the admiration of players from both sides Thursday night in an emotional game for him at the T-Mobile Arena.

Fleury, who played 13 seasons with Pittsburgh before his selection by Vegas in the expansion draft in June, made 24 saves against his former team in a 2-1 victory in front of the capacity crowd that had a strong contingent of Penguins fans.

"It really couldn't get any better than this," Fleury said. "I've been around this game for a little bit. That was good. We got the win. It was a close game with only two goals on our side. It was as good as it gets."
