Golden Knights’ Marc-Andre Fleury hilariously recreates major blunder ahead of NHL Playoffs semis Game 4 vs. Canadiens
Well, it seems like Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury has completely moved on from his major blunder in Game 3 of the NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs semis against the Montreal Canadiens. In fact, he’s just made fun of it by recreating that forgettable moment for Vegas during practice ahead of Game 4.

It could be remembered that Fleury mishandled the puck from behind the net late in the third period of Game 3. That led to a sort of freebie goal for Montreal, as Josh Anderson scored the game-tying goal to send the game into overtime. Anderson would later strike again on the breakaway in OT to give the Habs the 3-2 win and a 2-1 series lead. Fleury ended the game with 20 saves on 23 shots faced.
The Golden Knights’ resilience will be tested in Game 4, with the series still in Montreal. Vegas’ special teams definitely need to step up. The Golden Knights have yet to score on the power play in the series, as the Habs continue to make life hard for opposing teams to capitalize on the man advantage. Montreal has not allowed a single power-play goal in the last 10 games this playoffs, thanks in large part to the outstanding job between the pipes of Carey Price.
Will the Golden Knights even the series up Sunday night? That will heavily depend on Marc-Andre Fleury’s performance.
