Marc-Andre Fleury is the starting goalie for the Vegas Golden Knights against the Vancouver Canucks in Game 4 of the Western Conference Second Round at Rogers Place in Edmonton on Sunday (NBCSN, CBC, SN, TVAS).

Fleury last played Aug. 15, a 2-1 win against the Chicago Blackhawks in Game 3 of the first round, the first of back-to-back games. He made 26 saves, allowing a third-period goal to Olli Maatta.

Robin Lehner started the other nine postseason games for Vegas, including the first three against Vancouver. He shut out the Canucks 5-0 in Game 1 on Aug. 23 and 3-0 in Game 3 on Saturday to give the Golden Knights the lead in the best-of-7 series.

Lehner was 7-2-0 with a 2.08 goals-against average, .921 save percentage and two shutouts in the postseason. Fleury was 2-0-0 with a 2.50 GAA and .886 save percentage.

Fleury started each of the Golden Knights’ first 27 Stanley Cup Playoff games after they entered the NHL in 2017-18 and helped them reach the Stanley Cup Final in 2018, which they lost to the Washington Capitals.
