Vasilevskiy made 19 saves in a 5-3 loss to Washington on Thursday. He allowed four goals.
Vasilevskiy has lost three straight games and has allowed 14 goals in that span. But we can't be too worried -- Vasilevskiy was 10-2-0 in a strong stretch right before this one. It illustrates the challenge of viewing performance in too short of a window.

Unfortunately, though, his save percentage has dropped below the .900 mark (.896), which is a number we never thought we'd see. Nonetheless, he should rebound.... See More ... See Less
