Vasilevskiy led the Lightning onto the ice for warmups.

Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on 23 shots in the Lightning's win over the Rangers on Thursday. Vaislevksiy has won two in a row and enters play at 7-4-0 with a 3.01 GAA and .902 SV% on the season. Those are very un-Vasilevskiy-like but he appears to be settling into a groove. Saturday's matchup comes against a Jets team that is struggling to find offence consistently, so make sure Vasilevskiy is active in all formats.

Vasilevskiy will start Thursday vs. the Rangers.

Vasilevskiy allowed two goals on 22 shots in the Lightning's win over the Sabres in Sweden. It's been nearly one week since his last start, so Vasilskiy is well-rested coming into Thursday's matchup vs. the Rangers. New York has rarely played on the road early in the season but is 3-2-0 while scoring 2.80 goals per game outside of Madison Square Garden.

Vasilevskiy will start Friday against the Sabres.

Vasilevskiy gave up four goals on 25 shots in the Lightning's loss to the Islanders last Saturday. He has looked very un-Vasilevskiy in his last four appearances, going 1-3-0 with a 3.82 GAA and .884 SV%. Today he faces the Sabres in Sweden, a team he is 3-0-1 against in the last two seasons and a team that is 17th goal-scoring (2.93 GF/gm) and 22nd in shots on goal (30.0 SOG/gm).

Curtis McElhinney starts on Saturday, giving Vasilevskiy nearly an entire week of rest prior to tonight's outing in New York. The Rangers have lost six of their last seven and Vasilevskiy is 3-1-0 with a .913 SV% on the road so far. Suffice it to say that he's a must-start on Tuesday.

Vasilevskiy allowed three goals on 37 shots in the Lightning’s shootout win in Boston on Thursday. Vasilevskiy has won three straight while allowing just seven goals on 99 shots (.929 SV%). Overall, he has won four of his first five outings and is a great option against an Avalanche team on the second leg of a back-to-back with a goalie making his fourth career NHL start.

The Lightning have signed Andrei Vasilevskiy to an eight-year contract extension worth $76.0 million ($9.5M AAV).

Vasilevskiy had an excellent 2019 regular season, leading the NHL in wins (39), fourth in shutouts (6), sixth in SV% (.925) and ninth in GAA (2.40). Despite having a forgettable postseason, Vasilevskiy earned a much-deserved raise, becoming the third highest-paid netminder in the NHL. He should absolutely be one of the first goalies drafted this fall (if not the first).
