Defender “Tampa Bay lightning” Victor Hedman praised the game goalkeeper Andrei Vasilevsky in the current season.
“In my opinion, he is the best goalkeeper in the NHL. Some of his saves look impossible. Sometimes you don’t even expect that in this situation he can help out, but at the same time, not surprised when he does it. He is so fast that he never loses the thread of the game. Washi simply incredible”, — quotes the words of Hedman, the press service of the NHL.
In the period from 17 December to 15 February Wasilewski won 21 games, a club record for a series without a defeat in regulation time. He became the sixth goalie in NHL history who managed not to lose in regulation time at least 21 games in a row.
