Tampa Bay Lightning goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the Stanley Cup Playoffs' most valuable player Wednesday night.

Vasilevskiy only lost seven of 23 games this postseason. He finished the playoffs with a .937 save percentage, 1.90 goals-against average, and five shutouts.

He's blanked opponents in the Lightning's last five series-clinching games, dating back to last season.

Vasilevskiy has been a Vezina Trophy finalist in each of the past three campaigns and won the award in 2019.

Defenseman Victor Hedman earned the Conn Smythe last season in Tampa's first of back-to-back championships.
