Andrei Vasilevskiy and the Lightning ended up on the losing side of a 3-1 decision against Toronto Tuesday night.
What appeared to be a gift from the fantasy gods for Vasilevskiy owners turned disastrous as the backup netminder allowed three goals on 28 shots to the fledgling Maple Leafs. He should receive more opportunities to suit up as the Lightning rest their regulars toward the end of the season. Mar 31 - 10:31 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy out-dueled Roberto Luongo 4-3 in Tuesday's Floridian intrastate game.

Vasilevskiy probably wants the goal he allowed to Jonathan Huberdeau back, but otherwise he was solid all night long. Vasilevskiy made 33 saves in the effort, including five on the penalty kill. His record improves to 7-4-1 with 31 goals against in 14 games this season.

Andrei Vasilevskiy blocked 27 of 29 shots in the Lightning’s 2-1 loss to the Jets on Saturday night.

Mar 14 - 10:04 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will get the start against the Winnipeg Jets on Saturday night.

Vasilevskiy comes into the match with a 6-3-1 record with just 26 goals against on 314 shots through 10 starts and 12 appearances this season. He also owns five Quality Starts against just one Really Bad Start. An excellent ratio for any goalie, even the rookie Vasilevskiy.
Mar 14 - 4:41 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy made 31 saves in the Lightning’s 5-4 win over the Stars on Saturday night.

The 20-year-old gave up one goal in the first, two in the second and another one with three seconds left in the game. He has won his past two games, and now sports a 2.37 goals-against average and .917 save percentage. Vasilevskiy should be a lock to get a handful of starts down the stretch.
Mar 7 - 10:32 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy is expected to get the nod on Saturday.

That's based on the fact that Vasilevskiy was the first goaltender off the ice Saturday morning. He has a 2.21 GAA and .921 save percentage in 11 contests in 2014-15.
Mar 7 - 11:57 AM

Andrei Vasilevskiy earned his first NHL shutout Tuesday as the Lightning blanked Buffalo by a score of 3-0.

The fact that his first clean sheet came against the anemic Sabres is tempered by the fact he had to turn away 28 shots to get it. Although he's clearly not the starter for the Bolts, could offer value in daily leagues where his 5-3-1 record, 2.21 GAA and .921 save percentage can be of use.
Mar 3 - 10:49 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy was given the late start against the Buffalo Sabres on Tuesday night.

Ben Bishop was "dinged" during the morning practice, so Vasilevskiy gets the start. Through eight starts and 10 games this season, he's posted a 4-3-1 record with 22 goals against with four Quality Starts and just one Really Bad Start. Vasilevskiy played Buffalo on New Year's Eve in 2014 to the tune of a one-goal and 10-save victory.

Feb 26 - 11:50 AM

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped just 13 of 18 shots in Sunday's 5-4 loss to Colorado.

The 20-year-old got off to a fast start is his first few starts but this is was clearly the low point of his season so far. Vasilevskiy has great upside but this is clearly Ben Bishop's team for now. Vasilevskiy's record falls to 4-3-1 with a 2.46 goals-against-average and a .912 save percentage.
Feb 22 - 10:02 PM

Andrei Vasilevskiy will get the start versus the Colorado Avalanche on Sunday.

Ben Bishop got the start on Saturday night, so it's time for the backup to sit in the saddle. Through the first nine games and seven starts of Vasilevskiy's NHL career, he's 4-2-1 with 17 goals against on 233 shots.

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 28 shots in Monday's 3-2 loss to Los Angeles.

A slick wrister by Anze Kopitar and two roofers by Jordan Nolan and Jeff Carter conspired to topple Vasilevskiy and the Lightning, but the young Russian netminder played well otherwise. The loss sinks his record to 4-2-1 with 17 goals against over nine games this season.
Feb 17 - 3:59 AM
