  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Third win in last four starts

    Lindgren made 29 saves in a 5-3 win over Tampa Bay on Thursday.

    Lindgren entered the third period with a 3-1 lead, but he allowed two snipes in a span of just 24 seconds, and the score was tied. Lindgren, who was the busiest netminder in the game, then bricked things up and his teammates pulled ahead with five minutes remaining. Lindgren has three wins in his last four games, including one by shutout. And he has back-to-back wins in consecutive games for the struggling Capitals. Lindgren has delivered better than average counting stats despite the struggles of his Caps squad, so he may surprise going forward.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Slated to start

    Lindgren will get the start for Thursday's road game against the Lightning, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Lindgren will get his second straight start after a 37-save effort resulted in a 6-2 win over the Devils on Tuesday. The 30-year-old sports a 2.62 GAA and a .915 save percentage behind an 11-8-7 record in 25 starts this season and will need to be extra sharp Thursday to slow down Nikita Kucherov, who is currently the NHL's leading scorer.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Busy in Tuesday's win

    Lindgren made 37 saves in a 6-2 win over the Devils on Tuesday.

    The Devils pumped double-digit shots toward Lindgren in each period but he was up to the task. Finishing with a .949 save percentage, he kicked aside all seven power-play shots sent his way and received plenty of offensive help from his teammates as they provided a lead for him for the majority of the game. Lindgren has not been consistent of late, allowing 11 goals over a two-game span at the end of January and then shutting out the Bruins on Feb. 10. That being said, his regular season has been solid as he has totalled three shutouts and a 2.65 GAA.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Slated to start

    Lindgren is on track to guard the home goal versus the Devils on Tuesday, Sammi Silber of The Hockey News reports.

    Lindgren wasn't great in his last start last Tuesday versus the Avalanche, surrendering four goals on 35 shots en route to a 6-3 defeat. He'll try to get back in the win column in a tough home matchup with a New Jersey squad that's scoring 3.38 goals per game on the road this season, fourth in the NHL.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Falls to Colorado

    Lindgren allowed four goals on 35 shots in Tuesday's 6-3 loss to the Avalanche.

    It was a rough night for Lindgren, who allowed four goals through the first two periods before Colorado added a pair of empty-netters in the third. The 30-year-old has now dropped four of his last five outings, struggling to an .859 save percentage in that span. Overall, Lindgren falls to 10-8-4 with a .913 save percentage and a 2.65 GAA this season.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Slated to start Tuesday

    Lindgren is expected to get the home start against the Avalanche, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports.

    Lindgren is coming off an 18-save shutout over the Bruins on Feb. 10, but the 30-year-old has been slumping of late with a 4.01 GAA and an .861 save percentage behind a 1-3-0 record in his last five starts -- including a gruesome six goals against on 31 shots in a 6-2 loss to Colorado on Jan. 24. Lindgren could be in for another difficult outing versus the 32-17-4 Avalanche, so fantasy owners may want to be cautious when starting the Minnesota native.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Third shutout this season

    Lindgren made 18 saves in a 3-0 win over Boston on Saturday.

    What a great way to snap Washington's six-game skid. The shutout was Lindgren's third of the season and fifth of his career. He's now 10-7-4 in 22 starts this year with a 2.58 GAA and a .915 save percentage. The Caps are seven points out of a wild-card spot but have a minus-33 goal differential. Lindgren will be busy for the rest of the campaign, but the wins may not come in bunches. However, he will see a lot of pucks, so expect a decent save percentage.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Slated to start Saturday

    Lindgren is expected to start in Saturday's road game against Boston, per Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post.

    Lindgren has struggled mightily recently, losing his last four appearances while allowing 17 goals on 104 shots (.837 save percentage). That's dropped him to 9-7-4 with a 2.71 GAA and a .912 save percentage in 22 outings. It will be difficult to rebound against a Boston team that is in a three-way tie this season for sixth offensively with 3.45 goals per game.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Pulled in first period

    Lindgren allowed three goals on nine shots in Tuesday's 5-2 loss to the Canadiens. He was pulled in favor of Darcy Kuemper but still took the loss.

    The Canadiens peppered Lindgren with nine shots in the first period, finding the back of the net on three of them until he was eventually relieved of his duties. Kuemper took over between the posts 13:07 into the game and played solid, but his teammates were unable to give him the offensive production needed for the win. Lindgren ended the contest with just six saves and a .667 save percentage. The goaltender extended his personal losing streak to four games.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Falls to Stars in OT

    Lindgren made 30 saves in Saturday's 5-4 loss to Dallas.

    The Caps scored two goals in the final two minutes of the third period just to force extra time, but a Thomas Harley tally on a 3-on-2 rush ended the wide-open contest and handed Lindgren the overtime loss. The 30-year-old netminder has given up 11 goals on 66 shots over his last two starts, and since returning from an upper-body injury in mid-January, Lindgren has gone 2-3-1 with a 3.33 GAA and .884 save percentage. Washington doesn't take the ice again until after the All-Star break, but Lindgren's hold on the top job in the crease could be slipping.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Starting in Dallas

    Per Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post, Lindgren will defend the road crease in Dallas on Saturday.

    Lindgren had a tough time Wednesday in Colorado, giving up four goals to Nathan MacKinnon in a 6-2 loss. Lindgren is 9-6-3 with a 2.46 GAA and a .920 save percentage. His strong play has allowed him to take over as the No. 1 netminder, relegating Darcy Kuemper to the backup role. The Stars have scored 178 goals in 48 games, third in the NHL.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Falls to Colorado

    Lindgren allowed six goals on 31 shots in Wednesday's 6-2 loss to the Avalanche.

    It was a tough night for Lindgren against a potent Colorado offense, as he was tagged for a season-high six goals, including four from Nathan MacKinnon, in a second straight loss. Lindgren has started five of Washington's last seven games -- he appears to be the preferred option over Darcy Kuemper of late. The 30-year-old Lindgren is now 9-6-3 on the season with a .920 save percentage and 2.46 GAA.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Starting against Avalanche

    Lindgren will protect the road net against Colorado on Wednesday, Jessi Pierce of NHL.com reports.

    Lindgren was a little shaky in his last start Saturday against St. Louis, surrendering three goals on only 29 shots en route to a 3-0 defeat. He'll try to get back in the win column in a rough road matchup with an Avalanche squad that's an impressive 18-5-0 at home this season.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: On wrong side of shutout

    Lindgren allowed three goals on 29 shots in a 3-0 loss to the Blues on Saturday.

    After defeating the Blues on Thursday by a score of 5-2, Lindgren played well once again but did not receive the offensive support from his team. In total, he allowed a goal in each period, including one at even strength and two on special teams. Lindgren let in a short-handed marker early in the first period to Colton Parayko on an odd-man rush and then a power-play tally on a tip-in late in the third period. This is only the second time that he has surrendered three goals in his last seven games.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: First off Saturday

    Lindgren was the first goalie off the ice at the morning skate, Bailey Johnson of The Washington Post reports, indicating he will defend the road net Saturday against the Blues.

    Lindgren is coming off an 18-save performance in Thursday's 5-2 win over the Capitals. He has earned a 9-4-3 record this campaign with two shutouts, a 2.22 GAA and a .927 save percentage over 18 games played. The Blues rank 26th in the league this season with 2.79 goals per contest.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Difference maker again

    Lindgren made 17 saves in a 5-2 win over the Blues on Thursday.

    Lindgren was the difference maker for the Capitals on five penalty kills -- he didn't allow a goal. In fact, the only two goals he allowed were both deflections which were almost impossible to stop. Lindgren continues to play strong hockey for the Caps. He has allowed two or fewer goals in six straight starts and his save percentage this season is an excellent .927.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Starting Thursday

    Lindgren will get the home start versus St. Louis on Thursday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

    Lindgren has been strong in his last five appearances, going 2-1-1 while allowing only seven goals on 117 shots. Lindgren is 8-4-3 with a 2.24 GAA and a .929 save percentage this season. He is on pace to set a career high in games played, as his 31 appearances last season looks to be within reach. Lindgren will face the Blues, who are averaging 29.9 shots per game this season.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Gets little help in loss

    Lindgren made 29 saves in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Rangers.

    Starting for the second straight day in a home-and-home set against the Blueshirts, Lindgren once again held a dangerous New York offense to only two goals, but unlike Saturday, he didn't get enough offensive support to record a win. The fact that the 30-year-old immediately started two straight games after returning from an upper-body injury is a strong sign the Capitals view him as their No. 1 netminder, ahead of the struggling Darcy Kuemper.
