  • Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Drops regular season finale

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/16) Grubauer stopped 19 of 21 shots in Sunday's loss to the Ducks.

    With the Presidents' Trophy already locked up and finishing the season on a back-to-back set, Grubauer filled in for Braden Holtby in this one. He's now dropped four consecutive starts -- though his mates were shutout offensively in the last three -- and doesn't figure to see much, if any, action in the playoffs.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Confirmed starter Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/16) Grubauer will tend the twine Sunday agaisnt the Ducks.

    Despite the fact that Braden Holtby sits on the edge of history going into Sunday, the Capitals decided to rest their workhorse to ensure his health for the playoffs. As a result, Grubauer will prepare for a Ducks club that is expected to roll with their regulars as they attempt to win the Pacific Division. There is no word yet on the Capitals lineup, but with nothing to play for, it's possible the skaters in front of him will be different than usual. Grubauer is expected to oppose Frederik Andersen in Thursday's contest, but the lack of motivation could lead to a loss in his final start of the regular season.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Appears on track to start Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/10/16) Coach Barry Trotz suggested that Grubauer will "probably" start Sunday night's regular season finale against the Ducks, the Washington Post reports.

    Heading into Sunday's tilt, the Caps have nothing more to gain in terms of playoff seeding, so it seems likely that the team will elect to rest Saturday starter, Braden Holtby, in Sunday's season finale. Holtby -- who earned his 48th win of the season Saturday -- is a single victory shy of sole possession of the NHL's single-season goalie win mark -- but at this stage, we suspect that the Caps will probably prioritize playoff preparation over individual milestones Sunday, especially given the back-to-back game scenario in play here.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Victimized by Arizona Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/3/16) Grubauer gave up three goals on 27 shots in Saturday's loss to the Coyotes.

    Grubauer was having a good night until the third period, when Arizona exploded for three goals. With the loss, the 24-year-old drops to 8-8-1 on the season with a .918 save percentage. He's a decent backup, but Grubauer has lost three straight games and given up 11 goals in that span, so exhibit caution. Braden Holtby is the man in Washington and will be in the crease for the team's playoff run.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Expected to start Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (4/2/16) Grubauer is likely to start in goal Saturday night against the host Coyotes, The Washington Post reports.

    With the Presidents' Trophy already in the bag and Braden Holtby taking care of the Avalanche as recently as Friday night, it only makes sense for the team to turn to Grubauer on Saturday. Washington's backup tender has been decent in 10 road appearances this season, having crafted a 2.36 GAA and .918 save percentage over that span. Assuming he starts as expected Saturday, you have to like the matchup as he'll square off against a Coyotes team with the 20th-ranked offense, averaging 2.58 goals per game.
