      Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Stops 28 in loss to Dallas

      Grubauer made 28 saves on 31 shots in Thursday night's loss to the Stars. After using Braden Holtby the night before (on five days of rest), coach Barry Trotz curiously turned to his backup against the NHL's best offense. The inexperienced German netminder, who won't be 24 until next week, held his own against that impressive offensive machine, but Kari Lehtonen was excellent on the other end. Grubauer will probably next draw a start at the end of the month, when the Caps play a back-to-back set against Tampa and Toronto.

      Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Starting betwen the posts Thursday

      Grubauer will be the starting netminder for Thursday evening's matchup with the Stars, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports. Grubauer has played in only three games this season backing up Braden Holtby, earning a 2-0-1 record with 2.59 GAA and a .899 save percentage. The 23-year-old German draws a very challenging matchup on Thursday against the Stars who are currently in first place in the Western Conference. Dallas has also scored an average of 3.58 goals per game which is the highest average in the NHL. Grubaeur will have his work cut out for him against the Stars, who he has yet to face in his young career.

      Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Gives up three in loss

      Grubauer made 26 saves on 29 shots in an overtime loss to the Flames on Friday. This is only Grubauer's third game of the season, and his first loss. Playing behind Braden Holtby, his opportunities are very rare.

      Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Starting in crease Friday

      Grubauer will start between the posts Friday night against the Flames. Grubauer stops pucks second fiddle to Braden Holtby, but he makes for a nice spot starter at home Friday. Calgary looks lost on both ends of the ice this campaign and it has resulted in a 5-11-1 record and minus-25 goal differential. Grubauer has only made two starts this season though both were road wins.

      Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: To start Saturday in Florida

      Grubauer will start in net Saturday against the Panthers, Chuck Gormley of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports. Grubauer has only been given one start in net this season as he'll be looking to improve on his .826 save percentage after a 23-save win over Edmonton back on Oct. 23. Although, even another win won't likely vault him over normal starter Braden Holtby in the long season ahead.

      Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Makes 19 saves for first win of season

      Grubauer stopped 19 of 23 shots for his first win of the season Friday against the Oilers. Although it wasn't a good showing from Grubauer, it was good enough, as the Capitals exploded for seven goals on the night. While Grubauer won't see much action behind workhorse Braden Holtby, the 23-year-old is sporting a .920 save percentage in 21 career NHL appearances and makes for a solid spot start on an offensively loaded Washington team.

      Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Gets first start Friday

      Grubauer will get his first start of the season Friday against the Oilers, Jeff Paterson of TSN 1040 reports. Grubauer made just one start with the Capitals last season, allowing two goals in an overtime victory. Fresh off a two-year contract extension with the Capitals in the offseason, the 23-year-old netminder earned the backup gig and will now receive his first start of the season against an Oilers club scoring just 2.00 goals per game.

    • Makes 13 Saves Monday

      News: Grubbier stopped all 13 shots faced during Washington's 3-1 win over the Islanders on Monday.
      Analysis: Philipp Grubauer currently holds a slight edge on Justin Peters for the role as Braden Holtby's backup for 2015-2016. The 112th overall pick from 2010 has developed nicely over the last few seasons and has all the tools necessary to be a starting caliber NHL goaltender in the near future. While Holtby is expected to be a workhorse again in 2015-2016, don't be surprised if Grubauer gets more than a handful of starts to keep Holtby fresh or to raise his trade value as the Capitals organization is flush with talented goaltending prospects.
    • Caps' Grubauer In Competition For Backup Job

      News: Capitals goalie coach said that Philipp Grubauer will compete with Justin Peters for backup job behind presumed starter Braden Holtby in the 2015-2016 season, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
      Analysis: Recently re-signed to a two-year, one-way contract, the 23-year-old Philipp Grubauer is the early favorite to take over for Justin Peters, who is coming off a poor 2014-15 campaign, as the primary backup behind Braden Holtby -- assuming he too is re-signed. Grubauer had an excellent season with AHL Hershey, posting a 2.30 GAA and .921 save percentage en route to a 27-17-0 record in the minors last season. With starting goaltender potential, Grubauer should see some starts at the NHL level should he best Peters, but with Holtby firmly entrenched as the starter, his fantasy upside is somewhat limited even if he moves up the depth chart in 2015-16.
    • Caps' Grubauer Inks Two-Year Deal

      News: Philipp Grubauer signed a two-year, one-way contract with the Capitals on Monday.
      Analysis: Philipp Grubauer is now locked in as Braden Holtby's primary backup for the next two seasons. He only played in one game for the Capitals during the regular season, allowing two goals on 25 shots to Anaheim. Grubauer did get the nod once in the playoffs, however, stopping 18 of 21 shots in a win over the Islanders while Holtby was held out of action due to an illness.
