The 27-year-old trainee of Salavat Yulaev, now the goalkeeper of the Tampa Bay Lightning, Andrey Vasilevsky, became the Stanley Cup record holder in the number of shutouts in the decisive games of the playoff series. It is reported by "Championat".
Due to a shut-out in the fourth game of the 1/2 finals of the Eastern Conference with the Florida Panthers (2: 0), he already had six shut-outs in the decisive games. According to this indicator, Andrey bypassed the three-time Stanley Cup winner Chris Osgood (5 matches) and Clint Benedict (5 matches), who played from 1912 to 1930.
In the last game, Andrey Vasilevsky saved all 49 shots. His compatriot and counterpart from Florida, Sergey Bobrovsky, made 23 saves.
It should be mentioned that in September 2021, Andrey Vasilevsky, a graduate of the Salavat Yulaev hockey club, world champion, two-time winner of the Stanley Cup, and the Conn Smythe Trophy as part of the Tampa Bay Lightning, brought the main NHL trophy to Ufa.
