Jesus Christ, Flower. I mean is this sick bastard the most heartless individual in the NHL? The Toronto Maple Leafs have been pure shit so far this year. Nothing has been going right for them. It's absolute chaos up in Toronto and it's only a matter of time before the whole thing comes crumbling down. They lost 5 straight heading into last night so a win on the road in Vegas would be huge for that organization starting to get back on track. So down by a goal with just a few minutes left in the 3rd period, Nic Petan looked to have what would have been the game-tying goal served up on a platter for him. At the very least, the Leafs could get out of Vegas with a point.
Marc-Andre Fleury said however you would say, "get the fuck outta here, bitch" in French.
Again, have he no heart? The last time the Toronto Maple Leafs won a hockey game was against these Vegas Golden Knights in overtime back on November 7th. That's 6 games and almost 2 full weeks ago. But not only did Flower go out there and make one of the greatest saves we'll see all year, but he also locked up a regulation win for the Golden Knights. Just a real selfish prick right there. It's like he doesn't even care of Mike Babcock finally gets fired or not.
Oh and by the way, that win was number 450 in Fleury's career. He's just the 7th goalie in NHL history to hit that mark. The others are Martin Brodeur, Patrick Roy, Roberto Luongo, Ed Belfour, Curtis Joseph and Henrik Lundqvist. He still has 2 more seasons left on his contract after this one. He's not going to catch Marty Brodeur's 691, and getting to Patrick Roy's 551 might be difficult too. But Luongo sitting there at 3rd all time with 489 career wins? Excuse me, sir, but I believe that spot belongs to Mr. Fleury.
