Andrei Vasilevski continued the theme of a poor day for young Lightning goaltending prospects after he was pulled after 2 periods in Ufa Jr.'s 6-2 loss to Omsk Jr. I ask the question again: does the young man need a rest after having started every game of the season thus far for Ufa Jr? I'm looking at you, ex-Lightning forward and current Ufa Jr. coach, Alexander Semak. These two teams rematch on Thursday.
