Top Andrei Vasilevskiy News

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Three get past him

    Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on just 23 shots in Thursday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Sabres.

    It's been a rough stretch for a goaltender considered to be one of the best of his generation. In Thursday's game, it wasn't the same old story, however. Power play goals late in the third and in overtime were the difference. Nonetheless, it's hard for fantasy managers to trust Vasilevskiy right now. In his last seven starts, he's allowed 26 goals and has been at a .903 save percentage or better just twice.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Slated to start

    Vasilevskiy will defend the home crease versus Buffalo on Thursday, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    It has been a tough campaign for Vasilevskiy, who started the season on injured reserve after undergoing back surgery during training camp. He is 20-15-0 with a 2.99 GAA and an .896 save percentage, well below his career averages. The Sabres are averaging 31.7 shots on goal, 11th in the NHL, so Vasilevskiy will likely face a fair amount of rubber Thursday.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Gives up four goals

    Vasilevskiy stopped 25 of 29 shots in Tuesday's 6-2 loss to the Flyers. The fifth and sixth goals were empty-netters.

    With the game tied at 1-1 going into the third period, the Flyers scored three unanswered goals on Vasilevskiy to take a commanding lead and ultimately left him with an .862 save percentage on the game. Vasilevskiy has been inconsistent of late, playing .500 hockey in his last eight games and only finishing with a save percentage above .900 four times over that span. Fantasy managers should closely monitor Vasilevskiy's upcoming performances and consider his matchups before making any significant decisions.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Starting in Philadelphia

    Vasilevskiy will protect the road goal against the Flyers on Tuesday, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Vasilevskiy was sharp in his last start Saturday against the Islanders, stopping 32 of 34 shots en route to a 4-2 victory. He'll try to secure a second straight road win in a seemingly favorable road matchup with a slumping Philadelphia team that's lost four of its last five games.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Back in win column

    Vasilevskiy turned aside 32 shots in Saturday's 4-2 win over the Islanders.

    The 29-year-old netminder snapped a three-start losing streak with a strong effort, as he took a shutout into the third period before the Isles made things a bit interesting. The win was Vasilevskiy's 20th, marking the eighth straight season he's reached that mark. After his recent skid, he still sports a disappointing 2.95 GAA and .897 save percentage through 34 outings.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Starting vs. Islanders

    Vasilevskiy will guard the road net Saturday against the Islanders, Gabby Shirley of Bally Sports Florida reports.

    Vasilevskiy has struggled recently, losing three straight starts with an uncharacteristic .808 save percentage in that span. The 29-year-old netminder will look to right the ship against an Islanders team that's lost four of their last five contests, including a 4-0 shutout defeat to St. Louis on Thursday. Vasilevskiy is 19-14-1 with an .896 save percentage and 2.98 GAA this season.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Third straight loss

    Vasilevskiy made 19 saves in a 5-3 loss to Washington on Thursday. He allowed four goals.

    Vasilevskiy has lost three straight games and has allowed 14 goals in that span. But we can't be too worried -- Vasilevskiy was 10-2-0 in a strong stretch right before this one. It illustrates the challenge of viewing performance in too short of a window. Vasy hasn't been the goalie he's been in the past, but he's also not struggling as much as some might want you to believe. Unfortunately, though, his save percentage has dropped below the .900 mark (.896), which is a number we never thought we'd see. Nonetheless, he should rebound.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Slated to start

    Vasilevskiy is expected to guard the home goal versus the Capitals on Thursday, Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Vasilevskiy has struggled recently, suffering back-to-back losses to the Panthers and the Senators while posting a disastrous 6.23 GAA and .800 save percentage. He'll try to get back on track in a favorable home matchup with a Washington team that's averaging only 2.42 goals on the road this season, 30th in the NHL.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Takes another loss

    Vasilevskiy allowed four goals on 28 shots in Monday's 4-2 loss to the Senators.

    Vasilevskiy has allowed 10 goals on 50 shots over his last two outings. Prior to that slump, he had won six of his last seven starts without allowing more than three goals in any game in that span. The 29-year-old's not quite looked like himself so far, posting a 19-13-0 record with a 2.94 GAA and an .898 save percentage through 32 appearances. Vasilevskiy's career-long success affords him the opportunity to work through the struggles, so it wouldn't be surprising to see him start a favorable home matchup against the Capitals on Thursday.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Tending twine Monday

    Vasilevskiy will patrol the home crease Monday against Ottawa, according to Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site.

    Vasilevskiy gave up six goals on 22 shots in two periods of Saturday's 9-2 loss to Florida before getting pulled. In 31 games this season, he has provided a 19-12-0 record with a 2.90 GAA and an .899 save percentage. Ottawa is tied for ninth in the league this campaign with 3.35 goals per contest.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Pulled after mauling by kitties

    Vasilevskiy allowed six goals on 22 shots Saturday before being replaced to start the third period. The Lightning suffered a 9-2 loss to Florida.

    The Panthers put their claws into Vasilevskiy and the Bolts early, and then they toyed with them like a cat with a mouse. The netminder hadn't allowed more than three goals in a game since Jan. 6 against Boston (six surrendered). The loss snapped a three-game win streak for Vasilevskiy and dropped his save percentage back under .900 for the season (.899). Yes, it was one bad outing, but it's the kind of terrible contest that can sink an entire week for fantasy managers.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: In net Saturday

    Vasilevskiy is set to start at home against Florida on Saturday, per Chris Krenn of the Lightning's official site.

    Vasilevskiy has won his last three contests while saving 97 of 104 shots (.933 save percentage). That brings him up to a 19-11-0 record, 2.77 GAA and .903 save percentage across 30 outings in 2023-24. The Panthers are 19-7-2 on the road and are on a four-game winning streak, so they figure to be a challenging adversary for Vasilevskiy.

    Vasilevskiy made 28 saves in a 6-3 win over Colorado on Thursday.

    Don't let the score fool you -- the game was a lot closer than it indicated. The Bolts scored two empty-net goals to seal the Avs' fate. Vasilevskiy put up a solid performance and now has three consecutive wins, including 10 wins (10-2-0) in his last 12 starts.

Since returning from a back injury, the Russian backstop has appeared in 29 of the Bolts' last 34 contests and figures to continue seeing a heavy workload moving forward.

The 29-year-old has won five of his last six starts and has gone 11 straight outings without allowing more than three goals, posting a 9-2-0 record with a 2.35 GAA and .917 save percentage over the latter stretch.
