He was beloved in Pittsburgh and he's become a folk hero in Las Vegas.
April 26, 2018; Las Vegas, NV, USA; Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Marc-Andre Fleury (29) makes a third period save against the San Jose Sharks in game one of the second round of the 2018 Stanley Cup Playoffs at T-Mobile Arena.
The Golden Knights meanwhile, stayed even, but most of their good work in that area was against Los Angeles, as they only controlled 45 per cent of the high danger chances against the Sharks. He seems to be smiling most of the time.
Grabbing the win was Connor Hellebuyck, who stopped 36 of the 37 shots that he faced to improve to 8-4 with a 2.25 GAA and a.927 save percentage in this his first season of playoff action.
And with his numbers, who's to argue?
The Jets defeated the Nashville Predators 5-1 in Game 7 Thursday to advance to the franchise's first Western Conference final, which begins Saturday in Winnipeg against the Vegas Golden Knights.
"He's a great guy". The airline announced today it's adding two special nonstop flights between Winnipeg and Las Vegas on May 17 and May 20. "For us, we wouldn't be here if we didn't have him".

Trans Mountain argued that the bylaws were unconstitutional because they conflicted with the federal approval and the NEB Act. The $7.4-billion project would almost triple the flow of diluted bitumen and other products between Edmonton and Burnaby.
It's hard to predict a Stanley Cup Champion this season because any one of these four teams could win it all. Instead of one night in a fancy ball gown and magicked-up pumpkin carriage, the Golden Knights have carried their success throughout the regular season and into the playoffs, staving off the stroke of midnight with every victory. And he's still working to refine his game.
Brenda Bourns said private charter provider Air Charter Service reached out to her earlier this year to see if she was interested for any events.
Fleury had five days off in between series while Hellebuyck will have had just 48 hours to prepare for one of the fastest and most potent offenses in the league. "I'm super excited to be here and just having a chance to be playing playoff hockey with this team". "You try different things, (and there's) maybe one technical thing that's changed", Fleury said. The Lightning are the deepest team in hockey and now have all the momentum in the world after surgically dismantling the Bruins. While the Golden Knights have been a great story, there has been plenty of grumbling from the stepsisters left behind by Cinderella. I'm not putting anything past this storybook Golden Knights team.
"There was lots of unknowns going to this team - the talent, the organization, the players, seeing how we would do". "On and off the ice, he's a phenomenal goalie". So far in the playoffs, the Quebec native has played even better.
The Winnipeg Jets, above all, need to defend the Golden Knights offense.
"They're good. They're obviously one of the best lines out there", said Fleury. The Jets will play the Knights games 3 and 4 Wednesday and Friday at the T-Mobile Arena. That winning percentage, ranked third in the National Hockey League in this young season, is a welcome improvement over the 40-42 record from the 2016-17 season campaign.
