Vasilevski, Andrei

AHL Game Night: 11-7-14 Admirals at Crunch

Houghtaling stole my game headline...

NOR-4
SYR-3 (OT)

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 33 shots for the OT loss. His save percentage has dipped just a shade below .900 at .897 as he continues to adapt to North American hockey. He'll get there, Lightning fans. Breath.

First Period
SYR Cote, (1) (Angelidis, Ikonen), 3:51
SYR Marchessault, (4) (Nesterov, Blunden), 6:51 (PP)

Second Period
NOR Kerdiles, (2) (Leblanc), 15:18
NOR Wagner, (6) (Yip, Bell), 19:43

Third Period
SYR Angelidis, (2) (Samson, Dotchin), 1:02
NOR Cramarossa, (2) (McIver), 6:44 (SH)

Third Period
NOR Theodore, (1) (Cramarossa), 2:01

Mike Angelidis and J.P. Cote were the game's second and third stars.

Syracuse established themselves in the game with a good First Period, but were outshot 24-14 and outscored 3-1 thereafter. Not good, with Nikita Nesterov wearing the goat horns on Norfolk's OT winner.

The two teams will matchup again tomorrow.

AHL Game Night: 10-31-14 Americans at Crunch

Makarov bests old tandem-mate.

RCH-3
SYR-0

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 25 shots, dropping the decision to Andrey Makarov, who stopped all 38 he faced at the other end.

First Period
RCH Armia, (4) (Leduc, Makarov), 2:58 (SH)
RCH Leduc, (1) (Pysyk, Grigorenko), 19:02 (PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
RCH Varone, (4) (Adam, Samuels-Thomas), 7:42

It's rough to get shutout, but I'd say there were silver linings. They settled down after a rough First Period and outshot Rochester 25-11 the rest of the way. That's solid. They just couldn't crack Makarov, who can be impenetrable when he's on his game. Rochester is pretty loaded with high draft picks, too, so it's not like they were playing the sisters of the poor. They just really need to get some continuity and some bounces to go their way, and I think they'll be fine.

POR Rieder, (2) (Bolduc), 6:53 (SH)

AHL Game Night: 10-17-14 Falcons at Crunch

Legends were born tonight in Syracuse, New York.

SYR-3

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 2 goals on 29 shots for his first professional victory in North America.

First Period
SYR Marchessault, (1) (Cote, Blujus), 8:44
SPR Tyrell, (1) (Madaisky, Sedlak), 15:45

Second Period
SPR Monardo, (1) (Sifers, Madaisky), 3:53
SYR Paquette, (3) (Marchessault, Kunyk), 18:51

Third Period
SYR Drouin, (1) , 7:18

Some dude named Drouin, Jonathan Marchessault, and Cedric Paquette completed a Quebecois sweep of the three stars selections tonight.

I envy the folks who were in the arena tonight. Not only did they get to witness the first North American pro win by Vasilevskiy, but the first pro point by one of the truly great young players in the game. A future immortal. A young man who needs no introduction. 50 years ago when they recount this night to their grandchildren, and they will, they'll speak his name with the hushed reverence it deserves...

Dylan Blujus

But, seriously. We love Blujus here at Bolt Prospects, and we love Vasilevskiy, but all that was overshadowed by the professional debut of Jonathan Drouin, who lived up to his billing. He was +3. He was dangerous all night in helping to tilt the ice in Syracuse's favor. And, of course, he scored the game winner on a partial break that began with a quick little defensive play in his own end and was completed with a top shelf, cookie jar breaking shot.

Syracuse gets Binghamton tomorrow night as the Jonny (Jouer au) Hockey road show continues on its short run in the AHL.
