Every milestone is a good excuse to eat cake.

And Vegas Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury had double the reasons to take part in a little dessert.

Earlier this season Fleury played in his 800th career regular season game and, on Tuesday (his 808th game) he picked up his 446th career win.

The milestone victory, a 2-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks, moved Fleury into seventh place on the career wins list, passing Hall of Fame goalie Terry Sawchuk.

The veteran of 16 NHL seasons was given a special cake by his wife, Veronique, and three children to mark the occassion.

The cake featured golden pads in front of a brick wall with the number 800 on top and "446 Wins" written in front of the crease.

Fleury now only trails New York Rangers goalie Henrik Lundqvist (450 and counting) and Curtis Joseph (454), Ed Belfour (484), Roberto Luongo (489), Patrick Roy (551) and Martin Brodeur (691) on the all-time regular season wins list.
