Andrei Vasilevskiy's record-setting week earns him Player of the Week honors. 

With his back-to-back shutouts of Dallas and Montreal, Vasilevskiy matched and then broke Ben Bishop's franchise record for career shutouts. 

Vasilevskiy started the week with a 22-save performance in the Lightning's 6-3 win over the Flames on Tuesday night. He then stopped all 32 shots he faced as Tampa Bay defeated Dallas 6-0 on Thursday. Vasilevskiy's 18th career shutout came two night's later with the Bolts blanking the Habs 3-0 on Saturday night.
