As the Minnesota Wild's seasoned goaltender, Marc-Andre Fleury, gears up for tomorrow's match in the heart of Montreal, there's an air of sentimentality surrounding the event. The game is scheduled to unfold at the renowned Bell Centre, the hallowed home of the Montreal Canadiens.

What adds an intriguing layer to this occasion is Fleury's gesture of securing 24 tickets for his family members to witness the game live, sparking discussions about whether this might be his final appearance in his hometown.

Fleury expressed his thoughts on this distinctive situation, remarking,
"More than usual for this one. But still got to get the win. Got to get the 2 points & that's what matters. And hopefully you can put on a good show for them."

It's important to note that Fleury is currently in the last season of a two-year, $7 million contract, which carries a $3.5 million salary cap hit. If this season marks the conclusion of his illustrious NHL career, the forthcoming game in Montreal holds unique significance for the future Hall of Famer.
