The Golden Knights received a great goaltending performance form Robin Lehner in Game 4 as he stole back the win the Knights had given up in the previous game. Despite his stellar play, it seems that Marc-Andre Fleury will be back in tonight after a few days off to think about an error that cost his team Game 3.

We can probably expect a bounceback performance from the three-time Stanley Cup champion, but there will still be opportunities to catch him out of position as he aggressively plays the position, and he’ll have nervous moments venturing out of his crease to play the puck as well.

Montreal will just aim for the same type of game they had on Sunday, peppering Vegas’s goalie with plenty of shots from in tight and looking to cash in on any rebounds.
