  • Vasilevskiy will start in goal on the road against the Coyotes on Thursday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. Having slammed the door on the Blues for his third career shutout Tuesday, Vasilevskiy became the first NHL netminder to reach the 20-win plateau this season. The breakout star has posted a 1.75 GAA and .936 save percentage through four December appearances, and he should be glued to fantasy rosters in this upcoming contest against the league's youngest and worst team -- at least on paper.

  • Vasilevskiy stopped all 32 shots in Tuesday's win over the Blues. Vasilevskiy stymied the top team in the Western Conference with a sensational performance that included several highlight-reel stops. The 23-year-old has now won four straight games, bringing him to 20-4-1 on the season. Vasilevskiy owns a remarkable .933 save percentage and has been one of the best fantasy goaltenders this season.

  • Vasilevskiy will be the starting road goalie against the Blues on Tuesday night, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports. One more victory and Vasilevskiy will have 20 for the season. Backed by the league's top offense, the Russian is rounding into an elite goalie in his second year as a full-time starter. The Blues average 3.44 goals per game and they could cause problems for Vasilevskiy, but then again, they're figuring out how to adjust without the services of two-way tantalizer Jaden Schwartz, who is on injured reserve with an ankle injury.

  • Vasilevskiy will patrol the crease in Saturday's home game against the Jets, Ken Wiebe of the Winnipeg Sun reports. Vasilevskiy has probably been the best goaltender in fantasy this season, posting an 18-4-1 record while registering an impressive 2.21 GAA and .932 save percentage in 23 appearances. The Russian netminder will look to keep rolling and pick up a third straight victory Saturday in a home matchup with a Jets club that's averaging 2.63 goals per game on the road this campaign, 20th in the NHL.

  • Vasilevskiy made 25 saves Saturday in a 5-2 win over San Jose. After an absolutely dominating start to the season, Vasilevskiy has been a bit inconsistent since mid-November. He has alternated a win with a loss since Nov. 16 and now sits 4-3 in his last seven starts. But there may be a slice of light in this performance. Vasilevskiy finally faced fewer than 30 shots, something that hadn't happened since Nov. 16. He's far better when he faces fewer shots (or at least few enough to manage his fatigue). It's worth monitoring.
