Improved play from Andrei Vasilevskiy has played a big role in the Lightning's turnaround and their surge up the Atlantic Division standings. 

Last week, Vasilevskiy provided some of this best performances of the season, winning all three games he started and collecting a pair of shutouts. 

The only two goals Vasilevskiy gave up last week came in Tampa Bay's 9-2 blowout victory over the Canucks on Tuesday night. He still finished the night with 21 saves.

Vasilevskiy finished the week with a .972 save percentage. He is also currently tied for the League lead in wins with 22.
