FLEURY SET FOR HOMECOMING AS GOLDEN KNIGHTS VISIT PENGUINS

Marc-Andre Fleury is expected to play his first game in Pittsburgh as a visiting goaltender when the Western Conference-leading Golden Knights (35-13-4, 74 points) face the Penguins (29-22-3, 61 points). A fan-favorite with the Penguins for 13 seasons, Fleury was selected first overall in the 2003 NHL Draft and won the Stanley Cup three times with Pittsburgh – including back-to-back titles in 2016 and 2017 – before joining Vegas in the expansion draft last June. Fleury, who owns a 15-4-2 record in his first 21 games with the Golden Knights (including a 2-1 win vs. PIT on Dec. 14), compiled a 223-105-33 record in 374 regular-season home games with the Penguins – including a 136-52-14 mark at PPG Paints Arena.

Overall, only 10 points separate the eight teams in the Metropolitan Division, six of whom are in action tonight: WSH, NJD, PIT, CBJ, PHI and CAR.

FIRST STAR – EVGENI MALKIN, C, PITTSBURGH PENGUINS
Malkin led all skaters with six goals and eight points (6-2—8 in 3 GP) as the Penguins (29-22-3, 61 points) gained four of a possible six points to finish the week in third place in the Metropolitan Division. Malkin began the week by recording his 12th career regular-season hat trick, including the game-winning goal, in a 5-2 win over the San Jose Sharks Jan. 30. He followed it up with two goals and two assists in a 7-4 victory over the Washington Capitals on Feb. 2 before scoring Pittsburgh’s lone marker in a 3-1 loss to the New Jersey Devils Feb. 3. The 31-year-old Magnitogorsk, Russia, native leads all skaters in goals and points since Jan. 1 (15-9—24 in 14 GP) and sits tied for fourth among NHL scorers this season with 29-31—60 in 50 games.

SECOND STAR – HARRI SATERI, G, FLORIDA PANTHERS
Sateri went 3-0-0 with a 1.67 goals-against average and .946 save percentage to guide the Panthers (22-22-6, 50 points) to a perfect week and into a tie for fourth place in the Atlantic Division. Sateri opened the week by making 32 saves in a 4-1 victory over the New York Islanders Jan. 30 to earn his first career win. On Feb. 1, he stopped 30 shots in a 4-2 victory over the Buffalo Sabres and finished the week with a 26-save performance in a 3-2 triumph over the Detroit Red Wings Feb. 3. The 28-year-old Toijala, Finland, native has appeared in seven games for Florida this season – his first NHL campaign – posting a 3-3-0 record with a 3.19 goals-against average and .908 save percentage.

THIRD STAR – REILLY SMITH, RW, VEGAS GOLDEN KNIGHTS
Smith finished second in goals and tied for third in points (4-1—5 in 4 GP) as the Golden Knights (35-13-4, 74 points) won three of four games, set a new benchmark for wins by a team in its inaugural NHL season and finished the week first overall in the Western Conference standings. Smith recorded one goal and one assist in a 4-2 victory over the Calgary Flames Jan. 30. He then notched one goal in a 3-2 overtime win over the Winnipeg Jets Feb. 1 before being held pointless in a 5-2 loss to the Minnesota Wild Feb. 2.
