Vasilevskiy will be in the blue paint against Columbus on Tuesday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Vasilevskiy is riding a four-game winning streak in which he's logged a 0.75 GAA with a pair of shutouts. With regular starter Ben Bishop struggling (winless in his last three), it seems the Lightning are going give Vasilevskiy additional opportunities. As long as the 22-year-old continues to succeed, the trade rumors surrounding this tandem are not going to go away anytime soon.
