Big night for Fleury

In the midst of a banner campaign, Marc-Andre Fleury will look to set a personal milestone tonight when the Pens host the Isles at Consol.

Fleury is going for career win No. 300, aiming to become just the 30th goalie in NHL history to hit that mark. He’d also become just the fifth active goalie with 300 wins or more, joining Ryan Miller, Henrik Lundqvist, Evgeni Nabokov and Roberto Luongo.

As mentioned above, the potentially record-setting start comes in a year where Fleury has played very well. He’s 11-3-0 on the season, with a .930 save percentage and 1.98 GAA, which includes a league-leading four shutouts.

For the Isles, Chad Johnson will get the start in goal.
