VGK@PIT: Fleury pranks Penguins TV host Dan Potash

Marc-Andre Fleury pranks Penguins TV reporter Dan Potash by tying his microphone up in knots before the Golden Knights' game in Pittsburgh

  • 00:27 •

Marc-Andre Fleury is used to tying potential goal scorers up in knots, but he makes an exception for announcers when he returns to Pittsburgh.

Fleury, the Vegas Golden Knights goalie who spent his first 13 NHL seasons in Pittsburgh, decided to find Penguins TV reporter Dan Potash's microphones and, like one might do to a pair of shoes, tie them together.

The finished product, like all Fleury pranks, is a sight to behold.

Now, you might be asking where the evidence is that this was the work of the three-time Stanley Cup winner. Well, have we got a tweet for you.

All Potash could do was ponder how to get out of the situation.

Until, that is, he was set to exact his revenge.

Nice try, sir, but you can't outprank the king.
