Andrei Vasilevskiy got the opportunity to make his second start in a row Thursday to try to bounce back from a tough outing against Columbus on Tuesday.
"Vasilevskiy's played extremely well. We've been on a little bit of a tough run here," coach Jon Cooper said. "'Vasy' is on the wrong end of a tough one. We've gone back to 'Bish' on those. We're going back with Vasy in this situation." He permitted five goals on 38 shots to the Blue Jackets and he was pulled against St. Louis after he allowed four goals on 16 shots. Tampa Bay has lost four straight games and the team needs better goaltending from Vasilevskiy and Ben Bishop. Dec 2 - 8:58 AM

Andrei Vasilevskiy was yanked for the first time this season after he gave up four goals to the Blues on Thursday.

The young netminder hasn't fared well in his last two outings and he stopped just 12 of 16 including just two of five on the kill. He barely made it into the second period, but look for a rebound from him next time out.
Dec 2 - 1:50 AM

Confirming an earlier note, Andrei Vasilevskiy will indeed will be facing the Blues on Thursday.

Just once this season have more than three pucks beaten the young netminder in a game, and it was on Tuesday. Before then he'd allowed just three goals in a four-game winning streak. So we'd feel comfortable with him in net tonight.
Dec 1 - 6:16 PM

Look for Andrei Vasilevskiy to get the nod on Thursday.

Vasilevskiy was the first goalie off the ice following the morning skate, which is usually a good way of telling who will start. He has a 1.89 GAA and .940 save percentage in nine games this season, but he surrendered five goals in his last contest.
Dec 1 - 1:09 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed five goals on 38 shots in Tuesday's 5-1 loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets.

The Jackets have embarrassed several teams and goalies this year and they turned in one of their best performances of the season tonight. This was Vasilevskiy's first regulation loss since Oct. 29 and just his second of the season. He has a 6-2-1 record with a 1.89 goals-against-average and a .940 save percentage this season.
Nov 29 - 10:31 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will be in goal for Tuesday's contest versus Columbus.

Vasilevskiy has won each of his last four starts and he has allowed a mere three goals during that time. The 22-year-old netminder has a 6-1-1 record this season with an outstanding 1.50 GAA and a .951 save percentage.
Nov 29 - 2:48 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 29 of 31 shots in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Philadelphia Flyers.

Vasilevskiy continues to be the backup goalie behind Ben Bishop, but he's probably been the best backup goalie in the league this season. The 22-year-old has a 6-1-1 record with a 1.50 goals-against-average and a .951 save percentage. He's allowed more than two goals in a game just twice in eight games. Vasilevskiy's fantasy value would skyrocket if Bishop got injured or traded.
Nov 24 - 1:40 AM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will be in goal for Wednesday's contest against Philadelphia.

The Flyers posted a 3-1 victory over the Florida Panthers on Tuesday, but they were shut out by Vasilevskiy this past Saturday. The Lightning netminder has a 5-1-1 record with a 1.43 goals-against average and a .953 save percentage.
Nov 23 - 12:09 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy picked up his second shutout of the week by blanking the Flyers on 32 saves.

Make it 5-1-1 with two shutouts and still only 10 goals against for the young netminder this season. He was scheduled to see regular time this season, and this just cements it. Those in dynasty leagues should take notice.
Nov 19 - 4:45 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will face Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon.

Vasilevskiy's last two starts have been against the Islanders, including a shutout over them on Monday. He's been excellent this season, with a 4-1-1 record and just 10 goals against. Play him with confidence.
Nov 19 - 12:43 PM

Tampa Bay goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy, who backs up first-stringer Ben Bishop, made 34 saves en route to the Lightning's 4-0 shutout of the Islanders in New York Monday night.

Vasilevskiy is enjoying a first-rate season. In six starts, he has compiled a record of 4-1-1 and he has an outstanding goals-against average of 1.66. His save percentage is equally dazzling, at .945. Vasilevskiy stopped 20 of his 34 saves in the third period against the Isles. At 22, Vasilevskiy has a big future, but his fantasy value is limited as long as Bishop retains No. 1 status.
Nov 14 - 10:20 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will be in goal for Monday's match versus the New York Islanders.

The Lightning play again on Tuesday at Detroit, so Ben Bishop will probably tend to the cage in that one. Vasilevskiy owns a 3-1-1 record with a sparkling 1.99 goals-against average and a .932 save percentage in five starts this campaign.
Nov 14 - 12:10 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 31 of 32 shots in Thursday's 4-1 win over the New York Islanders.

Vasilevskiy hasn't played much this year because he's been sitting behind Ben Bishop, but he's been pretty effective when called upon. He has a 3-1-1 record with a 2.00 goals-against-average and a .932 save percentage. The 22-year-old's fantasy value is limited right now, but he'll turn into an elite option if Bishop gets injured or traded at some point in 2016-17.
Nov 10 - 11:45 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy is expected to start Thursday night.

Vasilevskiy will be going for his first win since Oct. 22. He has a 2.24 GAA and .922 save percentage in four contests this season.
Nov 10 - 12:02 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 28 of 31 shots in Thursday's 4-3 shootout loss to the Boston Bruins.

Vasilevskiy has been getting a start roughly every three games this season, which puts a damper on his fantasy upside. If the Lightning ever unload Ben Bishop, Vasilevskiy's fantasy value would skyrocket. The Lightning's backup has a 2-1-1 record with a 2.24 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage this season. Tonight's shootout went 10 rounds before Jimmy Hayes scored the winner for Boston.
