It appears that goaltender Marc-André Fleury's mishap during the Golden Knights' last game against the Montreal Canadiens last Friday will now cost him the start in the number four matchup between the two teams. At least that's what sources are saying.
If the Golden Knights head coach still refuses to confirm the identity of the starting goaltender for his team, Robin Lehner could be in front of the cage in Vegas according to Eric Engels, a journalist covering the Canadiens.

The NHL's official website also published an article questioning Fleury's presence in goal for tonight's game.
The goaltender was heavily criticized and mocked following a weak goal he allowed in the last match between the two teams.
With the Knights leading 2-1 on the scoreboard with two minutes left in the third period, the goaltender lost control of the puck on what appeared to be a harmless play behind his net. His team lost in overtime.
Game 4 between the two teams will be played at 8:00 p.m. tonight at the Bell Centre with the Montreal Canadiens leading the series 2-1.
