The Vegas Golden Knights hit the ice for the second game of a four-game homestand on Feb. 15 as the New York Islanders made their only visit to southern Nevada of the year.
Fresh off a dramatic 6-5 win against St. Louis two days earlier, the Golden Knights picked up where they left off and claimed a narrow 1-0 victory against the Islanders.
Fleury's 60th Shutout
He only had to make 19 saves, but Marc-Andre Fleury was perfect as he blanked New York for the team's second win in a row. It was his first time back in his famous gold goalie pads and the switch back to his old gear brought the team some positive vibes.

Tyson Fury Takes Over
Before he took on Deontay Wilder for the second time, boxing champion Tyson Fury donned his VGK gear to enjoy a game at The Fortress.
Naturally, he was drawn to this scrap from Ryan Reaves early in the game.
The Golden Goal
For the first time in T-Mobile Arena history, the Golden Goal was scored as Ruben netted five shots in a row from center ice to win a slew of prizes from MGM Resorts, including $30,000.
Two fans came to The Fortress all the way from Vienna, Austria. They rocked jerseys of the Vienna Capitals with whom the Golden Knights work collaboratively on hockey operations strategies and player development.
