Penguins Offense Spoils Marc-Andre Fleury's Return to Pittsburgh

Penguins Offense Spoils Marc-Andre Fleury's Return to Pittsburgh

The fan favorite, owner of practically every Penguins goaltending record from his 13 seasons with the franchise, makes his return to the Steel City Tuesday night for the first time as a member of the Golden Knights, and is expected to receive a hero's welcome back from the PPG Paints Arena crowd.

Tonight was about Fleury facing his former team; so it's time to take a look at how everyone has done against their old teams.

Fleury played against - and beat - his former teammates in December in Las Vegas, but he said that doesn't compare. His work has been featured on Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, FOXSports.com, CBSSports.com and many others. James Neal, who spent four seasons in Pittsburgh, got his 23rd.

The Golden Knights failed to garner any good chances after that, as the Penguins improved to 17-0-0 when leading after two periods. Though he missed time with a concussion this season, he's a major reason that Vegas leads the Western Conference standings.

Winnipeg Jets' Dustin Byfuglien (33) attempts the wraparound on Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (29) and Deryk Engelland (5) during the first period of an NHL hockey game Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He willingly chose to waive a clause that would have let him stay with the Penguins.

With caution, take Nunes memo seriously
The panel is conducting one of several investigations into whether Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election. The FBI and Justice Department deny they've done anything wrong, and they opposed the public release of the memo.

Fleury regained the starting job when Murray aggravated an injury during warm-ups in the first game of the playoffs.

In Buffalo, Adam Henrique scored 1:36 into overtime and Anaheim snapped a three-game skid. Washington received scoring from Chandler Stephenson, Matt Niskanen and Nicklas Backstrom.

In Sunrise, Florida, Aleksander Barkov scored twice, including the go-ahead goal late in the second period, to lead the Canucks past Vancouver. Those that opted out were Justin Schultz, Brian Dumoulin, Riley Sheahan, Ian Cole, Kris Letang, Carl Hagelin, Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby.

In St. Louis, Jason Zucker tied a career high with his 22nd goal and Devan Dubnyk made 35 saves in Minnesota's win over St. Louis.

In Denver, Gabriel Bourque and Tyson Jost scored 2:14 apart in the second period, Jonathan Bernier stopped 39 shots and Colorado beat San Jose.
