Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on 22 shots in Wednesday's 4-0 loss to the Washington Capitals in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Final.
The Bolts had home-ice advantage in Game 7, but they were unable to use that to their advantage. Capitals captain Alex Ovechkin opened the scoring at the 1:02 mark of the first period and the Lightning were never able to recover in this one. The most disappointing thing for them is that they failed to score a single goal in the final two games of the series. Vasilevskiy ends the postseason with an 11-6 record, a 2.58 goals-against-average and a .918 save percentage. The Lightning had a huge bounce back year after failing to make the playoffs last year, but failing to reach the Stanley Cup Final will be a huge disappointment for this talented squad.

Tampa Bay is down 2-0 in the series.
