Copley stopped 26 of 28 shots in a 3-2 win over the Kings on Monday. Goals by forwards Alex Iafallo and Ilya Kovalchuk made things interesting for Copley in the third period, but he held on to earn his third straight win. Copley improved to 13-5-3 with a 2.97 GAA and a .904 save percentage across 22 appearances. Copley has been a solid backup this season, but expect Braden Holtby to face the Maple Leafs on Thursday.
Copley will draw the start against the Kings on Monday, Chris Kuc of The Athletic reports. Copley has made two starts so far in February, going 2-0-0 while allowing seven goals on 70 shots. His 3.02 GAA and .903 save percentage on the season aren't much to get excited about, but a matchup against one of the league's weakest offenses could provide solid fantasy value.
Copley turned aside 29 of 33 shots in Monday's 6-4 win over the Kings. The 27-year-old backup wasn't particularly sharp, but he still picked up his 12th win of the season thanks to Evgeny Kuznetsov and company. Copley has allowed three goals or more in five straight outings, leaving him with a mediocre 3.02 GAA and .903 save percentage.
Copley is set to tend the twine at home against the Kings on Monday, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports. Copley will take the first game of the Caps' back-to-back in order to save Braden Holtby for Tuesday's road tilt with Columbus. In 20 appearances this season, the 26-year-old Copley is 11-5-3 with one shutout, a 2.97 GAA and a .904 save percentage. Heading down the stretch, the youngster could see some additional starts in order to keep Holtby fresh for Washington's title defense.
Copley stopped 34 of 37 shots Thursday in a 4-3 overtime win over Colorado. Copley needed this after Nashville and Chicago lit him up in his previous two appearances. This time, he did enough against the Avalanche's fearsome top line to give his team a chance to win, and the Capitals delivered for him. However, given how he's looked before Thursday, one game isn't enough to fully recommend Copley besides a daily league when you need someone cheap in goal.
