Vasilevskiy stymies Leafs for 2nd consecutive shutout

Dan Hamilton / USA Today Sports

With two of the most prolific offenses in the NHL pitted against each other Tuesday night, of course it was a goaltender who stole the show.

Then again, Andrei Vasilevskiy is no ordinary goalie, particularly as of late, as his 29-save effort against the Toronto Maple Leafs marked his second consecutive shutout.

The Tampa Bay Lightning netminder blanked the Columbus Blue Jackets in his previous outing, and now has a league-leading six shutouts this season.

Vasilevskiy also notched his NHL-best 26th win while continuing to pace all starters in save percentage (.937) and goals-against average (1.95).
