The series opened with two tight games, but Games 3 and 4 were owned by the Golden Knights, who look to advance Monday against the Wild.
Fleury earned his 16th career playoff shutout, tying Curtis Joseph for third all-time. (Martin Brodeur’s the record holder at 24, while Patrick Roy tallied 23.)
The Wild have struggled on the power play, going 0-for-8 through three games. That will need to improve in order to have a chance of a comeback.
“I think we just have to move the puck quicker. [Minnesota’s PK] running around and doing a great job, especially on our breakouts,” said forward Kevin Fiala. “We couldn’t get in clearly and make something, so we just have to bear down on the faceoffs and help on the draws and do everything to win them back, and on the power play to move the puck quicker and shoot some pucks and get the pucks back. I don’t think we are doing the right things right now.”
