1/18/2018 Marc-Andre Fleury, VGK, G

Analysis: A well-deserved First Star for Fleury, who was outstanding much like he's been nearly each time out since returning from a concussion in mid-December. The veteran netminder improved to 7-2-2 with a sparkling 1.44 GAA, a .953 save percentage and two shutouts in 11 starts since coming back. He's also yielded two goals or less in seven of his past eight assignments.
1/18/2018 James Neal, VGK, RW
James Neal scored one goal in 15:19 of ice time in the Golden Knights' 4-1 win over the Lightning on Thursday. He took five shots and had a plus-minus of +3 for the game. Neal now has 19 goals on the season.

Analysis: The All-Star selection had entered this marquee matchup on a cold spell with just one goal, one assist and a minus-5 rating over his last 10 games. Fifteen of Neal's 19 goals have now come in even-strength situations.

Analysis: Perron had gone a season-high seven straight games without a goal, though he recorded five assists during the drought and is tied for the team lead in that category. The veteran continues to produce at nearly a point-per-game pace while reviving his career with the Golden Knights, and he's had at least one point in 20 of his past 26 outings.
1/18/2018 John Tavares, NYI, C
John Tavares scored one goal in 19:45 of ice time in the Islanders' 5-2 loss to the Bruins on Thursday. He took two shots and had a plus-minus of even for the game. Tavares now has 25 goals on the season.
