Vasilevski, Andrei

AHL Game Night: 1-10-15 Penguins at Crunch

Crunch outlast Penguins... barely.

WBS-3
SYR-4

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 9 shots. They were soft enough that he was lifted at the First Intermission for Andrei Vasilevskiy, who allowed 1 goal on 11 shots the rest of the way to eventually collect the come-from-behind win.

First Period
SYR Paradis, (8) (Mormina, Corrente), 4:16
WBS Megna, (10) (Kostopoulos, Harrington), 14:31
WBS Megna, (11) (Boak), 18:38

Second Period
SYR Marchessault, (10) (Namestnikov), 3:29
SYR Blunden, (10) (Witkowski, Marchessault), 14:21

Third Period
SYR Ikonen, (4) (Vermin, Angelidis), 14:16
WBS Rowney, (2) (Dumoulin, Kostopoulos), 19:52 (PP)

Mike Blunden, Jonathan Marchessault, and Vasilevskiy were the game's three stars.

The night also saw the return of Philippe Paradis from injury. Paradis has been a key missing cog from the Gourde line that has sputtered in his absence. Henri Ikonen also potted a goal for the second game in a row.

At this moment, Syracuse's 51 points has them 1 point off the pace for both the division and the conference lead.

AHL Game Night: 1-2-15 Crunch at Devils

Vasiy en fuego.

SYR-2
ALB-1 (SO)

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 36 shots before stopping 10 of 10 shooters in the penalty shot session for the SO victory. His save percentage rises to .923 and I don't know how he wasn't named all three of the game's stars after helping his team to overcome a 36-26 shot deficit.

First Period
SYR Namestnikov, (7) (Marchessault, Mormina), 8:09
ALB Thomson, (4) (Burlon, Thompson), 10:40

Shootout
SYR- Lynch
ALB- NONE

Vasilevskiy and Vladislav Namestnikov were the game's first and second stars.

Such a sloppy effort by the Crunch tonight, but Vasilevskiy was the ultimate eraser for the odd man rushes the team surrendered, helping them to snap a 3 game losing streak in the process.

The Crunch scrambled back into a tie with Springfield atop the division at 46 points heading into tomorrow's matchup with Bingo.

NHL Game Night: 12-31-14 Lightning at Sabres

Lightning open a Third Period can of beat down.

TB-5
BUF-1

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 1 goal on 11 shots (not a typo) for the victory. He made a handful of key saves while the game was tight and the only goal he did allow was a point shot that deflected off of Hedman's stick and took a crazy bounce in on net.

First Period
7:48 TB Carle (4), (Palat)
12:33 BUF Ennis (9), (Zadorov, Moulson)(PP)

Second Period
19:02 TB Palat (9), (Johnson, Kucherov)(PP)

Third Period
5:20 TB Connolly (7), (Stralman, Palat)
8:40 TB Kucherov (16), (Johnson, Stralman)
18:05 TB Kucherov (17), (Palat, Johnson)

Ondrej Palat, Nikita Kucherov, and Tyler Johnson were the game's three stars.

The Lightning, for about 30 minutes, didn't look like they wanted to be in Buffalo (well, yeah). In the Third Period, they outshot Buffalo 14-1 and absolutely dismantled the young Sabres. It was a clinic put on by the triplets line to put 2014 to bed the right way.

Now, here's the interesting part: the Lightning now have 11 points in this 10-game segment of the season with 1 more game to play. Despite all their struggles this month, they may still hit 12 points over this 10-game stretch, and at a minimum, they'll have 4 insurance points heading into the second half of the campaign. Nice.

Cedric Paquette had 3 hits and 1 blocked shot and was 40% on draws in 17:00 of ice time. He had the hit of the game smoking Josh Gorges after a failed breakaway by Steven Stamkos.

Jonathan Drouin had 1 shot in 14:08.

Nikita Nesterov was +1 in 15:02 in his NHL debut. He made a key play breaking up a 2-on-1 that nearly resulted in a goal at the other end when Stamkos hit a crossbar. In all, he wasn't noticeable, but that's a positive for a rookie d-man.
