    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Rough outing in loss

    Grubauer gave up four goals on a meager 18 shots against Florida on Tuesday. Grubauer had an awful night on Tuesday, registering a .778 save percentage, his lowest of the season. It was not the type of performance that will instill confidence in coach Barry Trotz's ability to give starter Braden Holtby some rest heading into the playoffs. Washington have an upcoming back-to-back home stand Saturday and Sunday that should provide the 24-year-old a chance to redeem himself.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Could see increased role in final months of season

    Head coach said Grubauer could see an increased role and get as much as 25 percent of the starts in Washington's last 35 games, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports. The Capitals have more games to play than anyone else before the season ends in early-April and have some margin of error in terms of playoff position given their place in the standings, so it's reasonable that Trotz would be inclined to give Holtby more games off to keep him fresh for the playoffs. That said, Holtby is having a Vezina-worthy season, so it's hard to see Grubauer poaching enough starts to make him a hot commodity in standard leagues, especially given Holtby's preference for a heavy workload. It will be an interesting balancing act as the season moves forward, but Holtby owners might find it worthwhile to pick up the German netminder as a handcuff. Monitor his starts going forward.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Perfect in relief

    Grubauer stopped all 11 shots he faced after relieving Braden Holtby in the second period of Sunday's win over the Rangers. Holtby left the contest with a bout of dehydration, but it doesn't appear to be a serious, long-term ailment. Grubauer entered with a 3-2 lead and was able to keep the Rangers right there, as the offense in front of him added on two insurance tallies in the final frame. The 24-year-old figures to fill in as the lead option in net should Holtby miss any time.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Allows just one in win

    Grubauer denied 32 of 33 shots in Sunday's win over the Senators. It was a strong outing from Grubauer, but his mates made it easy on him as they poured in seven goals of their own on the other side of the ice. He's now 5-3-1 on the year but won't be called upon in net too often with Braden Holtby's terrific play in front of him.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: In goal Sunday

    Grubauer will start in the cage Sunday against the Senators, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Grubauer will receive his first start between the pipes since the turn of the calendar to 2016 in Sunday's contest, which isn't a huge surprise given Braden Holtby's hot streak. The netminder will face a tough matchup in his return to the crease, facing a red hot Panthers club riding an 11-game winning streak.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Solid in loss to Canes

    Grubauer was solid Thursday, stopping 33 of 36 shots in a 4-2 loss to the Hurricanes. It was just the seventh start of the season for Grubauer, who continues to be the primary backup for Braden Holtby, who just happens to lead all NHL goalies in wins this season with 24. Despite Thursay's loss, Grubauer is a solid fantasy play whenever he gets the occasional spot start. Unfortunately, those will continue to be few and far between as long as Holtby remains healthy.
