    PHILADELPHIA -- Marc-Andre Fleury made 38 saves for the Vegas Golden Knights to earn his 400th NHL victory, 3-2 against the Philadelphia Flyers at Wells Fargo Center on Monday.

    Fleury is the 13th goaltender with 400 wins, and third active, joining Roberto Luongo of the Florida Panthers (467) and Henrik Lundqvist of the New York Rangers (430).

    "It's nice," Fleury said. "It's something I'll look up, be more proud of when I'm done. Still playing and always looking forward to the next game. It's a nice number to reach. The list of guys in front of me, all the guys I have tremendous respect for, I looked up to growing up. Pretty cool to have my name with them."

    Fleury's teammates were excited to get the win for their goaltender.

    "It's huge," said defenseman Deryk Engelland, who also played with Fleury with the Pittsburgh Penguins. "That's a milestone not many people have been able to hit. Just how good of a guy he is on and off the ice, couldn't be happier for him."

    Fleury has 25 wins this season, but his impact has been just as important off the ice.

    "He's fun to be around," Engelland said. "He works hard. He's great for the young guys with his compete on and off the ice. Just seems like you come in and you're having a bad day, you see him and you're not having a bad day anymore. He's huge in the locker room."

    Ryan Carpenter scored the game-winner with 2:40 remaining in the third period, and Erik Haula and William Karlsson also scored for Vegas (45-19-5).

    The Golden Knights won their third straight game and have a 12-point lead on the second-place San Jose Sharks in the Pacific Division.

    "Tonight was a good game," Vegas coach Gerard Gallant said. "Philadelphia is a good hockey team. We came here and played a real good hockey game, solid game, found a way to get the late goal and win it. [Fleury] was the difference in the game."

    Carpenter scored the game-winner when Cody Eakin knocked the puck away from Valterri Filppula and it rolled to Carpenter, who one-timed it past Mrazek.

    "We're pesky and never out of it," Carpenter said. "Guys stayed positive on the bench after they tied it (2-2). You could tell they were trying to get some momentum, but we felt like we were going to get the next goal. So, it was nice to get it."

    Claude Giroux and Wayne Simmonds scored for Philadelphia (35-24-11). Petr Mrazek made 26 saves.

    The Flyers are third in the Metropolitan Division, two points ahead of the Columbus Blue Jackets.

    It's the second time in three games they've lost on a goal in the final minutes of the third period; Brad Marchand scored with 22 seconds remaining in the third in a 3-2 loss against the Boston Bruins on Thursday.

    "We've seen this story before," Giroux said. "It's frustrating. We played a hell of a game. We played the way we wanted to and everyone was going. A couple minutes left, and they find a way to put it in. It's frustrating. We've got to stop doing this, but we know we can handle it and we've got to move forward from here."

    Simmonds' power-play goal tied it at 7:06 of the third period when he took a pass on the left wing and beat Fleury high to the short side.

    Karlsson put the Golden Knights ahead 2-1 at 6:00 of the third when he scored a power-play goal off the rebound of a shot by Shea Theodore.

    Giroux tied it 1-1 with a goal 1:27 into the second period. Sean Couturier knocked down an outlet pass by Theodore and pushed the puck to Giroux. He skated to the inside of the left face-off circle and beat Fleury to the far side.

    Haula gave the Golden Knights a 1-0 lead with a power-play goal at 6:17 of the first period.

    They said it
    "You don't know how long you're going to play, how long things are going to go. Just enjoy this one tonight." -- Golden Knights goalie Marc-Andre Fleury



    "I think we played a good game 5-on-5, [penalty kill] needs to be better, but we've got to move on, forget this one as soon as possible and move on and think about the next game." -- Flyers forward Sean Couturier
