Twitter reaction: Golden Knights, Fleury praised after historic sweep

Watch as the Golden Knights and Kings shake hands after Vegas sweeps the series in four games.

The Vegas Golden Knights can’t seem to go a full week without making more history.

With a 1-0 victory over the Los Angeles Kings Tuesday, the Golden Knights earned the first playoff series win in franchise history—and did it with a clean sweep no less. Not only that but they became the first team in the NHL, NBA or MLB to sweep a best-of-seven in their inaugural season.

The lone goal was courtesy of former Kings blueliner Brayden McNabb, but the story of the game, and the series as a whole, was Marc-Andre Fleury. The star netminder stopped all 31 shots he faced Tuesday and 127 of the 130 total shots he saw in the four-game series.

Vegas now moves on to face either the San Jose Sharks or Anaheim Ducks in the second round—the Sharks are currently up 3-0 in that series—but before that happens they’ll have a few days to celebrate.

Here is some reaction to the team’s latest accomplishment.
