The Tampa Bay Lightning honored Victor Hedman for playing 1,000 games in a Tampa Bay uniform on Monday. However, it was superstar goalie Andrei Vasilevskiy who stole the show.
He made big save after big save against the Dallas Stars, and although the Lightning players didn’t seem to play at their best, they had Vasilevskiy stepping up behind them, bailing them out.
The Russian made 25 saves throughout the game and posted his first shutout of the season as the Lightning won 4-0.
The Lightning ended a 4-game losing streak, and this victory bumped them to an 11-10-5 record, mostly thanks to Andrei Vasilevskiy keeping the puck out of his net.
Vasilevskiy was the star of the game, but what had fans talking was what happened after the game. A clip of him doing a post-game presser quickly went viral for the most unexpected reason.
Vasilevskiy was just answering a question about how he felt during last game’s loss, and when he was talking, an audible fart suddenly interrupted him.
Although it’s not confirmed, it certainly seemed like it was Vasilevskiy himself who let one rip, and his reaction to it all was absolutely hilarious.
He started laughing hysterically, shook his head, and said, “What was the question?” while laughing.
The members of the media started laughing as well, and as you can imagine, the video quickly went viral on social media, with everyone finding it absolutely hilarious.
“Farts are never not funny,” one user said.
“This is the kind of hard-hitting, no-nonsense sports reporting I’ve been waiting for,” another said.
Many also came up with great jokes about it.
“Right through the 5 hole,” one said.
“It was so loud he lost his train of thought lmao,” another said.
“To be great between the pipes, you must first make the sound of the pipes,” a third added.
