Bolts' Vasilevskiy Makes 25 Saves In Loss

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy made 25 saves on 28 shots in Tuesday's 3-1 loss to the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: He's now 7-5-1 on the season with a solid save percentage (.920 heading into Tuesday) for such a young player. But Andrei Vasilevskiy's just 3-4-1 in his last eight starts, so it's unlikely he'll steal time from Ben Bishop any time soon.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Confirmed In Goal Tuesday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy led the Lightning on the ice for pregame warmups and has been confirmed as the starter in goal Tuesday against the Maple Leafs, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Andrei Vasilevskiy, who owns a 7-4-1 record and 2.30 GAA over his 15 appearances with the Lightning, will match up against Leafs backup goalie James Reimer. Though Reimer led the Leafs to the victory column in his previous start, the team had lost its seven previous games, making them a rather vulnerable target Tuesday. Vasilevskiy should have strong odds of securing win No. 8 on the year.

Lightning Could Start Vasilevskiy On Tuesday

News: Joe Smith of The Tampa Bay Times expects Andrei Vasilevskiy to draw the start Tuesday against the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: With Ben Bishop having earned the win Monday against Montreal, it looks like Andrei Vasilevskiy is in line to get a shot at Toronto on Tuesday. The Leafs snapped a seven-game slide with Saturday's 4-3 overtime win over Ottawa.

Tampa's Vasilevskiy Appears In Relief

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy replaced starter Ben Bishop about seven minutes into the second period of Thursday's game. He stopped all eight shots he faced.
Analysis: Bishop had an off game; nothing more, nothing less. Andrei Vasilevskiy has had a solid March, delivering a 3-1 record in four starts. The net is still Bishop's, though, so don't too excited (unless you're in a keeper league and playing for next year).

Vasilevskiy, Lightning Outlast Panthers

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped 33 of 36 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 victory over Florida.
Analysis: Making his first start in 10 days, the Russian rookie showed no rust while outplaying Roberto Luongo. He doesn't get to start over Ben Bishop very often, obviously, but makes for a terrific spot start when he does get the call.

Lightning Turn To Vasilevskiy On Tuesday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Panthers, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Andrei Vasilevskiy, who sports a 6-4-1 record to go along with a 2.35 GAA and .918 save percentage overall, is thus in line to make his first appearance since March 14, with the Lightning in the midst of a three-game win streak.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy: 27 Saves In 2-1 Loss

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy made 27 saves in Saturday's 2-1 loss to the Jets.
Analysis: He didn't allow a goal until the 10-minute mark of the third and then was betrayed by his defence when they gave the puck away to Blake Wheeler who drilled home the winner from the right circle. He earned the game's third star for his effort.

Bolts Going With Vasilevskiy On Saturday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy will be between the pipes for Saturday's game against the Jets, Matt Baker of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Regular starter Ben Bishop has been exceptional his past few times out, but with coach Jon Cooper pledging to rest his No. 1 goalie more frequently down the stretch in preparation for the postseason, Andrei Vasilevskiy will receive increased opportunities over the next few weeks. The playoff-contending Jets don't represent the easiest matchup for the rookie netminder, but he's proven capable when called upon thus far, going 6-3-1 with a 2.37 GAA and .917 save percentage. He should be considered the favorite to pick up the win over the Jets' Ondrej Pavelec, who will start in the opposite net.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy: 31 Saves In Win

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy made 31 saves in a 5-4 win over Dallas on Saturday night. He has won his last two starts.
Analysis: Unfortunately, he's been hot or stone cold since his call up in early February. He delivered a shutout earlier this week and he stands on his head when he appears in relief. But in between those moments, he delivers sub .900 save percentages in starts. He still needs to grow his game; he is young, after all. So don't over invest just yet.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy To Get Start Saturday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy was the first goalie off the ice at morning skate and will receive the start in goal Saturday against the Stars, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: After earning his first career shutout against the Sabres on Tuesday, Andrei Vasilevskiy will be handed his second start in three games. Coach Jon Cooper previously stated that No. 1 goalie Ben Bishop would be rested with more frequency for the remainder of the regular season, opening the door for Vasilevskiy to become one of the more valuable backup goalies in the fantasy realm. He previously made a start against the Stars back in early February, stopping 33 shots in a 5-3 win.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Gets First NHL Shutout

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy turned aside all 28 shots the Sabres sent his way in Tuesday's 3-0 victory -- the first shutout of his young NHL career.
Analysis: After a short trip back to the AHL, Andrei Vasilevskiy got called up Thursday, and after Ben Bishop gave up four goals on Sunday, the Russian rookie ended up drawing the cake assignment against the tanking Sabres. It's his first win in nearly a month, dating back to Feb. 5, but Vasilevskiy has nonetheless given the Lightning strong work between the pipes in a limited sample.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Confirmed To Start Tuesday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy has been confirmed as the starter in goal for Tuesday's game against the Sabres, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: A call on the Bolts' starting goalie came down to the bitter end, as there was still some uncertainty whether Andrei Vasilevskiy or Ben Bishop would get the call after the team concluded pregame warmpus, as both goalies participated. Confirmation on Vasilevskiy came barely before the 7:30 p.m. ET scheduled start time for the game, likely limiting the ability of those in daily leagues to add the goalie into their lineups on time. For those who were fortunate to keep Vasilevskiy active, he should be one of the best goalie plays on the board for Tuesday, as he'll match up against the league's 30th-ranked scoring offense.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Gets Surprise Nod Tuesday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy led the Lightning on the ice for pregame warmups and will receive the start in goal Tuesday against the Sabres, Mike Harrington of the Buffalo News reports.
Analysis: Ben Bishop had been expected to receive the starting nod after he was the first goalie off the ice at the Lightning's morning skate, but coach Jon Cooper decided to turn to Andrei Vasilevskiy in a surprise move. With the Sabres owning the league's worst record and clearly not aiming to be competitive this season, it probably makes some sense for coach Jon Cooper to give Bishop a rest for more important matchups down the road. In any event, Vasilevskiy represents a tremendous spot-starting option for those looking for goalie help during the Tuesday slate.

Lightning's Vasilevskiy To See More Playing Time

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy will likely get one or two starts per week for the rest of the regular season, Joe Smith of The Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: The Lightning want to keep Ben Bishop fresh for the playoffs, though the team still has quite a bit to play for in terms of seeding. Bishop will get the nod Friday against Chicago, but it wouldn't be surprising to see Andrei Vasilevskiy in net for Sunday's game against the Panthers.

Vasilevskiy Recalled By Lightning

News: The Lightning recalled Andrei Vasilevskiy from AHL Syracuse on Thursday, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Andrei Vasilevskiy returns to the big club to back up Ben Bishop, after making a spot start for Syracuse on Wednesday in a 4-3 loss to Rochester.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Sent To AHL Syracuse

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy was reassigned to AHL Syracuse on Tuesday.
Analysis: It's likely only a short-term deployment, as the Lightning won't play again until Friday. Look for Andrei Vasilevskiy to play for Syracuse during Wednesday's game before either he or Kristers Gudlevskis joins the parent club prior to the weekend.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy: Allows Five Goals On 18 Shots

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed five goals on 18 shots in Tampa Bay's 5-4 loss to Colorado on Sunday night.
Analysis: He will go down in the record books as having been in net for Nathan MacKinnon's first career hat trick. Andrei Vasilevskiy finished with just 13 saves and looked beatable ... which he was. Time to put that behind him and move on.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Starts Sunday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy will start between the pipes against the Avalanche on Sunday, Joe Smith of the Tampa Bay Times reports.
Analysis: Andrei Vasilevskiy was the expected starter for Sunday's contest, and now that appears to be confirmed. He allowed three goals on 28 shots against the Kings on Monday, but his work ethic and dedication has earned him another start in net.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Expected To Start Sunday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy is expected to start Sunday at Colorado, according to the Associated Press.
Analysis: Andrei Vasilevskiy has made some brilliant saves since his call-up. But he's allowed three goals in each of his last three starts and won just once in that span. Colorado isn't exactly tearing things up these days, but they've played teams tough of late. Weigh your options before you activate.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Edged By Kings

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy gave up three goals on 28 shots in a 3-2 loss to the Kings on Monday.
Analysis: Despite having posted above average ratios (.927 save percentage, 2.13 GAA in nine appearances), Andrei Vasilevskiy has now dropped three starts in a row, albeit against tough opponents in the Kings (twice) and the league's best team in Nashville. Still, he's one of the better backup options in the entire NHL on a potent Lightning squad, so those with the flexibility of daily lineup changes and the ability to make use of spot starts should keep tabs on the 20-year-old Russian.

Bolts' Turn To Vasilevskiy On Monday

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy will start in goal Monday against the Kings, Bryan Burns of the team's official website reports.
Analysis: The Lightning enter Monday on the back-end of a back-to-back, so Andrei Vasilevskiy will get the nod for the second game. He's been very sharp in his first six starts as the rookie will take a 4-1-1 record, 2.00 GAA, and .932 save percentage into Monday's contest.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Perfect In Relief

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy was perfect in relief Thursday. He stopped all nine shots he faced in one period of action.
Analysis: Starter Ben Bishop is struggling a bit right now, so the Bolts may give Andrei Vasilevskiy a few more starts than expected. But Vasilevskiy is an excellent prospect who might give Bishop a real run in the short term. Monitor your daily league frequently so you can take advantage.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy: Acrobatic 26 Saves In OT Loss

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy made 26 saves in a 3-2 overtime loss to Nashville on Tuesday.
Analysis: One of his saves robbed a Predator of a sure goal -- he stretched across the crease and got a toe on the shot. Despite the loss, that save will certainly make the plays of the day. Andrei Vasilevskiy's future is bright, and he could even see an uptick in playing time in the short term because of his strong pedigree in road games, although this road loss won't help his case.

Lightning's Vasilevskiy Draws Tuesday Start

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy is in line to start Tuesday's game against the Preds, Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports.
Analysis: Andrei Vasilevskiy, who will be making his sixth NHL start of the season Tuesday, has earned wins in his last three starts, while compiling a 1.96 GAA and .934 save percentage in six appearances overall with the big club to date. Ben Bishop has had his hiccups of late, and while Vasilevskiy probably won't usurp him of primary starting duties for the Bolts, coach Jon Cooper clearly feels more confident in the young netminder's abilities than those of previous backup Evgeni Nabokov.

Bolts' Vasilevskiy Sparkles In Relief

News: Andrei Vasilevskiy manned the net for the final two periods of Saturday's loss to the Kings, stopping 19 of 20 shots.
Analysis: With the Bolts already trailing 3-0 after the first 20 minutes, Andrei Vasilevskiy was called off the bench to replace Ben Bishop. While he didn't factor into the decision, Vasilevskiy once again showed that he's NHL-ready, despite his youth. Vasilevskiy was believed to be on track to receive Sunday's start against the Ducks, but because he was forced to take on an unexpected workload Sunday, coach Jon Cooper could end up going with Bishop again.
