  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Makes Stars go blue

    Vasilevskiy made 19 saves in a 3-1 win over Dallas on Saturday.

    The only puck that got past him came off Esa Lindell's stick when the Stars' defender fired a shot from just inside the blue line in the first period. And Vasilevskiy snuffed out every other chance the Stars had. He's strung together three consecutive wins and he's allowed just four goals in that span. Overall, Vasilevskiy is 22-6-3 with a 2.14 GAA and a .924 save percentage.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Slated to start

    Vasilevskiy is on track to start between the pipes in Saturday's game versus the Stars, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Vasilevskiy was sharp in his last start Thursday versus Vancouver, turning aside 24 of 26 shots en route to a 4-2 victory. The 27-year-old netminder will try to secure a third straight win in a favorable home matchup with a Dallas team that's 4-11-1 on the road this year.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Domination continues

    Vasilevskiy made 24 saves in a 4-2 win over the Canucks on Thursday.

    Vancouver may have been the better team Thursday, but Vasilevskiy was yet again a difference-maker for Tampa Bay. Vasilevskiy is 21-6-3 with a dazzling 2.18 GAA and .924 save percentage.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Tending twine Thursday

    Vasilevskiy will protect the home goal Thursday versus the Canucks, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Vasilevskiy has won three of his five games in January, allowing 12 goals in that span. The 27-year-old will face a Canucks team that has played well since replacing Travis Green with Bruce Boudreau as head coach, though Vasilevskiy is essentially an automatic play in fantasy regardless of opponent.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Cruises to easy win

    Vasilevskiy made 17 saves in Tuesday's 6-1 win over the Sabres.

    His shutout bid got ruined early in the third period by a Vinnie Hinostroza power-play goal, but otherwise Vasilevskiy wasn't really tested and he cruised to his 20th win of the season. He's put himself firmly in the conversation for another Vezina with a 2.19 GAA and .924 save percentage on the season.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: In goal Tuesday

    Vasilevskiy will get the starting nod on the road against the Sabres on Tuesday, Bryan Burns of the Lightning's official site reports.

    Vasilevskiy will be making his fifth consecutive appearance in the crease, having gone 2-2-0 with a 2.76 GAA in his previous four outings. The 27-year-old netminder is tied with Nashville's Juuse Saros for most wins this season as he goes for his 20th of the year versus Buffalo. Barring an extended injury absence, Vasilevskiy seems like a near-lock to reach the 30-win mark for the fifth straight season.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Another four-goal loss

    Vasilevskiy made 25 saves in a 5-2 loss to the Bruins on Saturday. He allowed four goals.

    Vasilevskiy did everything he could, but the Bolts had no answer for David Pastrnak and the Bruins, who had put in four pucks before they found twine. Since the start of 2022, Vasilevskiy has been up and down. He's 2-2-0 with 11 goals allowed, eight of which came in the two losses.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Taking on Bruins

    Vasilevskiy will guard the home goal Saturday versus the Bruins, Eduardo A. Encina of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Vasilevskiy is 9-1-0 in his last 10 games since the start of December. He's won his previous two games, allowing three goals on 49 shots in that span. The 27-year-old will face a challenging team in the Bruins, but Vasilevskiy is as close to automatic as it gets in fantasy hockey.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Comes close to another shutout

    Vasilevskiy made 26 saves in a 4-1 win over the Flames on Thursday.

    He came within 4:06 of a shutout; Dillon Dube wired a sharp wrister from the left face-off circle that eluded Vasilevskiy. The netminder is the great stabilizer in the Tampa net, and as he goes, so go the Bolts.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Tending twine versus Flames

    Vasilevskiy will guard the home goal in Thursday's game versus the Flames, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Vasilevskiy has won four of his last five games, though he's given up 12 goals in that span. Despite the rather average play in net, he'll likely receive a boost with the Lightning's preferred top six playing together for the first time in a couple of months. The Flames are still a formidable road team, but Vasilevskiy's a quality activation in fantasy any time he starts.

    Vasilevskiy made 20 saves in Tuesday's 7-2 win over the Blue Jackets.

    The Bolts handed their goalie a 3-0 lead heading into the first intermission, and Vasilevskiy made sure the Jackets never got close to mounting a real comeback. The perennial Vezina candidate is 8-1-0 since the beginning of December with a sharp 2.32 GAA and .922 save percentage.

    Vasilevskiy will start Tuesday's road game versus the Blue Jackets, Erik Erlendsson of LightningInsider.com reports.

    Vasilevskiy received no help in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Rangers, but the Blue Jackets pose a significantly lesser threat. This gives the Russian netminder a good chance to bounce back. He has yet to suffer consecutive regulation losses this season.

    Vasilevskiy made 17 saves in Sunday's 4-0 loss to the Rangers.

    The Bolts out-shot the Blueshirts 38-21 on the afternoon, but while Igor Shesterkin was standing on his head in the other crease, Vasilevskiy was putting together a rare clunker. The loss snapped a seven-game winning streak for the 27-year-old netminder, and on the season Vasilevskiy still sports a 2.21 GAA and .925 save percentage.

  • Lightning's Andrei Vasilevskiy: Out with COVID-19

    Vasilevskiy landed in the COVID-19 protocols Sunday, according to Joe Smith of The Athletic.

    Vasilevskiy is one of four Tampa Bay players that landed on the COVID-19 list, with the others being defenseman Mikhail Sergachev, center Pierre-Edouard Bellemare and goaltender Brian Elliott, as well as assistant coach Rob Zettler. Vasilevskiy is one of the best goaltenders in the NHL and his absence will be a huge blow for the Lightning, especially since Elliott has also landed in the protocols. As of right now, it's uncertain who will start between the pipes Tuesday against Montreal.

    This was Vasilevskiy's seventh straight win, and the Golden Knights made him earn it -- the 41 shots he faced were the most he's seen in a game this year. The 27-year-old enters the extended holiday break at 17-4-3 with a 2.14 GAA and a .928 save percentage in 24 appearances this season.
