Chicago Blackhawks goaltender Marc-André Fleury has started the last six games in-a-row. He’s 4-1-1 in those six games, winning four-straight, and having a shutout in his last outing against the Anaheim Ducks. Going 3-0-0 this week and earning his third shutout of the season gave him the NHL’s Second Star of the Week honors!

Fleury has been huge for the Blackhawks this season, but especially since the coaching change from Jeremy Colliton to Derek King. Since November 7, Fleury is 12-4-2, tied for fifth in the NHL for the most goalie wins. He has all three of his shutouts this season in that stretch of time, tied for the most in the NHL since that date. His .929 save-percentage since November 7 is tied for the third-best in the NHL among goalies to start at least 10 games.
Fleury is 13-11-2 this season with a .915 save-percentage and a 2.73 GAA. He is one of 13 goalies this season to have at least 13 wins, a .910+ save-percentage and a GAA under 3.00. HIs three shutouts are tied for the third-most this season in the NHL.
