Fleury makes 34 saves, Golden Knights shut out Avalanche


DENVER — Marc-Andre Fleury made 34 saves for the Vegas Golden Knights in a 3-0 win against the Colorado Avalanche at Ball Arena on Monday.

Alex Tuch scored two goals, and William Karlsson had two assists for Vegas (11-4-1), which earned a split of the four-game set after losing the two previous games.

Philipp Grubauer made 25 saves for Colorado (9-5-1), which won its previous five home games.

Tuch gave the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead at 2:53 of the second period when he split between two defenders while skating down the slot and scored on a power play.

Tuch made it 2-0 at 6:14 when the rebound of his backhand shot from low in the left face-off circle went in off defenseman Bowen Byram‘s right skate.

Jonathan Marchessault scored with a shot from the left hash marks to make it 3-0 at 11:06 of the second.

It was Fleury’s third shutout of the season and the 64th of his NHL career. He made 30 saves in a 1-0 win against the Avalanche in Las Vegas on Feb. 14 in the first of the four straight games between the teams.
