by Gordon Weigers @GoldenKnights / VegasGoldenKnights.com

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.

VGK Worldwide
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.
