Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed two goals on 37 shots in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.

After suffering just one regulation loss in his first 16 decisions, Vasilevskiy has now dropped two of his last three games. The Lightning goaltender now owns a 15-3-1 record with a 2.30 goals-against-average and a .930 save percentage this season. Even though he lost on Friday, he'll continue to be an excellent fantasy option going forward.

Vladislav Namestnikov found the back of the net in Friday's 3-1 loss to the Washington Capitals.

Namestnikov opened the scoring with a power play goal at the 1:22 mark of the first period, but it was the only offense the Lightning could muster in this one. He's now accumulated 11 points in his last 10 games. He's up to 10 goals and 22 points in 22 contests in 2017-18.

Jake Dotchin has been moved to the injured reserve list.

The Tampa Bay Lightning have claimed Christopher DiDomenico off waivers from Ottawa.

DiDomenico was on waivers because Ottawa had claimed Gabriel Dumont off waivers from Tampa Bay, so you could look at what happened as a minor trade. DiDomenico has three goals and six points in 12 games this season.
Nov 24 - 12:15 PM

Cory Conacher has been called up by Tampa Bay.

Conacher has notched six goals and 13 points in 17 games this season with Syracuse of the AHL. He had one goal and three helpers in 11 appearances with the Lightning in 2016-17.

The Ottawa Senators have placed Chris DiDomenico on waivers.

DiDomenico was playing well earlier this season, but his production has predictably dipped over the last few weeks. He has three goals and three assists in 12 games this season. It'll be interesting to see if any team takes a chance on him.
