Marc-Andre Fleury Entering Some Rare Air

from Dave Stubbs of NHL.com,

Marc-Andre Fleury has worked his way up the NHL goalie leaderboard with a style and flair as unique as his personality, and Patrick Roy, Martin Brodeur and Grant Fuhr are very much enjoying his journey.

Fleury and the Vegas Golden Knights are tied with the Montreal Canadiens in the best-of-7 Stanley Cup Semifinals with Game 3 at Montreal on Friday (8 p.m. ET; USA, CBC, SN, TVAS).

In his 15th NHL postseason, 11 with the Pittsburgh Penguins and the past four with the Golden Knights, the 36-year-old native of Sorel, Quebec, has kicked, sprawled, pirouetted, windmilled, dived and grinned to 90 Stanley Cup Playoff wins, two short of tying Fuhr, the Edmonton Oilers legend, for third place.

First and second are Fleury's boyhood idols: fellow Quebec natives Roy, with 151 for the Canadiens and Colorado Avalanche; and Brodeur, with 113 for the New Jersey Devils.

Good read Paul! Thanks for posting that.

Someone the other day on here mentioned Quebec goalies. It is truly amazing the top goalies are all from the same providence in Canada.

Fleury has been steller for so long. It is incredible how well he has played even in a season of being the back up.  Just think, in 2008& 9 he was facing the wings in the SCF.
