Some food for thought entering another week of hockey ...
That's the number of career wins Marc-Andre Fleury has after defeating his former team on Saturday, which ties him with Terry Sawchuk for seventh place on the all-time list.

In his age-35 season, Fleury leads the league in games played (9), wins (6), shots against (287), saves (268) and goals saved above average (7.27). In the cap era, only five goalies aged 35 and older who appeared in at least 60 games finished with a winning record: Martin Brodeur (twice), Roberto Luongo (twice), Miikka Kiprusoff, Dwayne Roloson and Curtis Joseph. Fleury is a historical outlier and a future Hall of Famer, so normal age vs. regression curves might not apply to him. He easily remains a top-10 fantasy goalie despite his age.
That's the Kings' Corsi For% this season, according to Natural Stat Trick, and the second-best rate behind the Flyers' 56.23 percent.

Last season, the Habs were the only top-10 team in CF% that missed the playoffs, and they missed by just two points.
