Vasilevski, Andrei

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

Andrei Vasilevskiy stopped all 26 shots he faced for his second straight shutout. He's now 7-3-3 with 2 SO, a 2.44 GAA, and a .914 sv%. He's given up a whopping 1 goal in his last 3 starts, and with Gudlevskis struggling Andrei now appears to clearly be the #1 goaltender in Syracuse.

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.

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.

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.

Oh Vasya...

SYR-4
UTI-5

After his Frozen Dome brilliance, Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 5 goals on 35 shots for the loss. Still waiting for that one cathartic moment when it all clicks for the big Russian.

Unfortunately, after climbing all the way back into the 4-4 tie, the team promptly coughed up the lead goal to Utica, erasing any hope at moral victories. At least Yanni Gourde, Tanner Richard, and Philippe Paradis continue to raise holy hell for the Crunch. That trio has 33 points in 11 games in the month of November. Kind of a Modin/Richards/St. Louis-esque trio there in how the line works.
