Tampa Bay Lightning DFS Spin

Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed six goals on 39 shots during Monday's 6-2 loss to the Toronto Maple Leafs. Vasilevskiy and the Bolts were no match for Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner, who combined to score seven points tonight. Even Leafs goalie Jack Campbell stood out for all the right reasons in this one. In the end, nobody in Tampa will push the panic button after a loss like this because they're the two-time defending Stanley Cup Champions. This would be an awesome playoff series though. Vasilevskiy owns a 35-14-4 record with a 2.37 goals-against-average and a .919 save percentage this season.

Washington Capitals DFS Spin

Vitek Vanecek surrendered four goals on 18 shots in Sunday's 5-1 loss to the Minnesota Wild. Vanecek fell behind 2-0 in the first period on goals by Joel Eriksson Ek and Tyson Jost. Eriksson Ek would again beat him for a goal near the end of the second period, with Marcus Foligno putting the finish touch on Vanecek's line via a fourth and final goal 30 seconds into the third period. This was Vanecek's third appearance in his last four in which he has surrendered four or more goals. In that four-game span, he has given up a total of 16 goals. Up next on the schedule for the Capitals, a Wednesday matchup with the Lightning.
