Vasilevski, Andrei

NHL Game Night: 12-16-14 Lightning at Flyers

Vasilevskiy plays the role of the slump slayer.

TB-3
PHI-1

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 24 shots for the victory in his first NHL start.

First Period
19:19 PHI Simmonds (14), (Streit, Giroux)(PP)

Second Period
1:50 TB Stamkos (18), (Drouin, Callahan)
6:34 TB Johnson (10), (Callahan, Kucherov)

Third Period
19:18 TB Filppula (6), (Paquette, Johnson)(EN)

Ryan Callahan and Vasilevskiy were the game's first and third stars. The night offered Lightning fans a brief slice of the future, with Vasilevskiy in net and Jonathan Drouin playing on the top line with Stamkos. Both had important hands in the outcome of the game, with a cameo appearance by young Cedric Paquette on the EN goal to seal the game.

Paquette had a helper and was +1 with 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot. He was also 67% on draws.

Drouin had a helper and was +1 with 2 penalty minutes and 1 blocked shot in 17:28. If I have a critique of Drouin, it's that I'd like to see him look to shoot a little more and generate some offense that way, too. I hope he stays on that line with Stamkos from here on out.

AHL Game Night: 12-12-14 Bears at Crunch

Vasilevskiy's rampage continues.

HER-1
SYR-4

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 30 shots for the victory. He finally saw his shutout streak snapped, but his performance tonight raised his season save percentage to .918 and lowered his GAA to 2.34. He's allowed 1 or fewer goals in each of his last 4 starts and won 7 of his last 8 starts. He has the potential to elevate Syracuse from a playoff contender to a championship contender.

AHL Game Night: 12-10-14 Crunch at Falcons

Vasilevskiy rising.

SYR-2
SPR-0

Third Period
SYR Blunden, (3) , 19:13 (EN)

AHL Game Night: 12-6-14 Americans at Crunch

Vasilevskiy makes his bid for the starter's job.

RCH-0
SYR-2

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped all 34 shots he faced for the win and his first career AHL shutout. He's won 5 out of his last 6 starts and 3 of his last 4 starts have been high quality outings. It certainly feels like he's turned the corner and with Gudlevskis struggling, it's time to ride or die for a little while with Vasya.

First Period
SYR Samson, (1) (Namestnikov, Kunyk), 17:08

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
SYR Namestnikov, (2) (Witkowski), 19:47 (EN)

Vasilevskiy, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Jerome Samson were the game's three stars.

AHL Game Night: 11-29-14 Crunch at Bears

Vasya rising up.

SYR-4
HER-1

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 29 shots for the victory. That's 2 quality starts out of his last 3, including the command performance in the Frozen Dome game. Now, if I'm Zettler, I declare Vasilevskiy the hot hand and see if I can ride him a little while. Time to see if that talent can translate to more results. Even without superior centermen, I feel Syracuse should score plenty of goals. They'll go as far as the goaltending takes them, though.

First Period
SYR Paradis, (6) (Gourde, Mormina), 6:06

Second Period
HER Galiev, (3) (Carrick, Kennedy), 16:41 (PP)

Third Period
SYR Kunyk, (3) (Vermin), 1:58
SYR Kunyk, (4) (Mormina), 14:51 (PP)
SYR Marchessault, (8) (Gourde), 19:04

Cody Kunyk, Philippe Paradis, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars. Kunyk pots the GWG and the insurance goal in a good night's work. Paradis has 5 goals and 6 points in 3 games this week, essentially daring Bolt Prospects not to select him Player of the Week. With 2 helpers, Yanni Gourde now has 9 goals and 18 points in 13 November contests. He and Jonathan Marchessault are now tied for 8th in the AHL in scoring (at the moment of this posting) with several others, 4 points back of the leader.
