  • Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Saves 28 in road loss to Rangers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/17) Grubauer stopped 28 of the 30 shots the Rangers sent his way Sunday afternoon, but he got stuck with a 2-1 loss.

    The German backup doesn't get to play all that often behind Braden Holtby -- mostly in back-to-back situations like this one -- but when he's been between the pipes, he's performed well. Through 16 appearances this year, Grubauer owns a sparkling 10-4-2 record with a 1.98 GAA and .932 save percentage, so the Caps don't hesitate to turn his way when Holtby needs a break.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Tending twine Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/17) Grubauer will defend the net for Sunday's game against the Rangers, Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post reports.

    Grubauer last started five games ago for the Capitals, posting a 38-save shutout effort against the Kings. With Washington playing a back-to-back set Saturday and Sunday, Grubauer finally receives a chance to knock some rust off Sunday. He squares off against a tough Rangers club who won six straight prior to a loss to the Islanders on Thursday.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Shuts out King 5-0 on Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/17) Grubauer captured a shutout, stopping all 38 shots he faced, in a 5-0 victory over the Kings on Sunday.

    Prior to this season, Grubauer had never posted a shutout, but this was the third time he blank an opponent in just 13 starts during 2016-17. He's not going to receive consistent playing time unless Braden Holtby gets injured, but Grubauer is on pace for more starts this season and his numbers are better across the board.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Leads team onto ice, starting Sunday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/5/17) Grubauer will start between the pipes Sunday against the Kings, Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press reports.

    Coach Barry Trotz wasn't willing to tip his hand ahead of Sunday's contest, but Grubauer was a good bet to start after Holtby went for the front end of the team's back-to-back set Saturday. He will face a Kings club that's one for in a row and a goalie (Peter Budaj) who's posted shutouts in three of four contests. It may be difficult for Grubauer to win this one, but an explosive offense should give him a shot.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Gets little help in loss to Isles

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (1/31/17) Grubauer stopped 26 of 28 shots in a losing effort against the Islanders on Tuesday.

    The Caps came out of the All-Star break with a bit of a flat effort, scoring just once in the first 59 minutes; Alex Ovechkin scored their second goal only after an empty-netter had put the Isles up by a 3-1 tally. Grubauer had given up exactly three goals in three straight appearances, so this was still a nice improvement for him. All in all, he's been a credible backup for Braden Holtby, but he shouldn't be considered a threat to overtake the No. 1 role.
