It was the 61st career shutout for Fleury, moving him into a tie for 17th place on the NHL's all-time list with Hall of Famer Walter "Turk" Broda. The five shutouts also moved him into a tie with Elvis Merzlikins of the Columbus Blue Jackets for the league lead.
Nick Cousins, making his Golden Knights debut after being acquired in a Monday trade with the Montreal Canadiens, scored a goal, as did Max Pacioretty and Shea Theodore. Vegas extended its season-high winning streak to seven games, tying for the second-longest mark in team history.
Kings 2, Penguins 1

Petersen made 35 saves in his fifth start of the season and 15th of his NHL career. Blake Lizotte had a goal and an assist and Trevor Lewis also scored for the Kings, who are 4-2-1 in their past seven games following a 2-12-1 stretch.
Avalanche 3, Sabres 2
J.T. Compher had a goal and an assist, including the go-ahead score midway through the third period, and Colorado beat Buffalo in Denver.
