Vegas Golden Knights DFS SPIN

Marc-Andre Fleury stopped 20 shots in a 3-2 loss to Montreal in Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Semifinals on Wednesday. Fleury closed the door on some early chances by the Canadiens in Game 1 of the series on Monday and allowed his teammates to build up a lead. That didn't happen on Wednesday, as Montreal scored two goals on 12 shots in the first period. Paul Byron avoided Fleury's poke check attempt late in the second period to give the Canadiens a 3-0 lead and that held up as the game winner following a late comeback try by the Golden Knights. The defeat ends Fleury's five-game win streak and he will look to rebound on the road in Game 3 on Friday. The best-of-seven series is tied at 1-1.
