By: Mike Stiles - Wednesday, December 11, 2019

(LAS VEGAS) – Marc-Andre Fleury has enjoyed many big moments during his decorated NHL career. This one might have been the most emotional. Fleury made 28 saves and the Vegas Golden Knights beat the Chicago Blackhawks 5-1 on Tuesday night in their goaltender's first game since the death of his father, Andre. The 16-year veteran hadn't started since a 4-2 loss to Edmonton on Nov. 23. Reilly Smith, Deryk Engelland, William Karlsson, Max Pacioretty and Ryan Reaves scored for the Golden Knights, who now hit the road for two games on a 5-1-1 run. Corey Crawford, who dropped to 1-4-0 against Vegas, made 32 saves for Chicago, which played its third road game in six nights. Dominik Kubalik scored with 27 seconds left to spoil Fleury's bid for his 59th career shutout.
