  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Wins in OT

    Lindgren stopped 31 of 34 shots in Tuesday's 4-3 overtime victory over the Blue Jackets.

    The Blue Jackets would tie the game in the third period on Johnny Gaudreau's goal, but Lindgren and the Capitals would hang on to win the game on Evgeny Kuznetsov's tally in overtime. It's Lindgren's first win since Dec. 31. He'd been 0-2-0 with a .845 save percentage in his last four appearances. The 29-year-old Lindgren improves to 12-6-2 with a .907 save percentage and a 2.67 GAA on the season.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Tending twine Tuesday

    Lindgren will defend the road net versus Columbus on Tuesday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Lindgren, who will start for the first time since Jan. 17, has posted a record of 11-6-2 this season with a 2.66 GAA and a .907 save percentage in 22 games played. The Blue Jackets sit 29th in the NHL this year with 2.54 goals per game.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Makes another relief appearance

    Lindgren came on for Darcy Kuemper in Sunday's 5-1 defeat to the Maple Leafs, stopping six of seven shots.

    This is Lindgren's second consecutive outing off the bench with his last start coming Jan. 17 versus Minnesota. With Kuemper clearly struggling, it's possible Lindgren could get the start for the final pre-All-Star break contest versus Columbus on Tuesday, though the team hasn't provided any specific confirmation yet.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Yields two goals in relief outing

    Lindgren gave up two goals on nine shots in relief of Darcy Kuemper in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

    Lindgren avoided picking up a decision here, but he didn't show very well despite limited tests from the Golden Knights. The 29-year-old has lost both of his starts in January, and he's given up eight goals on 51 shots over three appearances this month. With Kuemper generally playing well -- Saturday aside -- Lindgren has had reduced opportunities to get between the pipes. He's at 11-6-2 with a 2.66 GAA and a .908 save percentage through 21 appearances, which are solid numbers for a backup.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Gives up three in loss

    Lindgren stopped 18 of 21 shots, losing a 4-2 contest to the Wild on Tuesday.

    Lindgren did not have his A-game versus the Wild, allowing three goals in the second period and posting a .857 save percentage. While having an excellent month of December, Lindgren has struggled in his limited game action so far in January, sporting a 0-2-0 record with a 3.11 GAA and .857 save percentage. The former Canadien will likely continue to serve as the backup to Darcy Kuemper.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Takes loss against Preds

    Lindgren stopped 18 shots in Friday's 3-2 loss to the Predators.

    All three Nashville goals came from close range, as the Washington defense did a poor job clearing traffic from in front of Lindgren's crease. The 29-year-old saw his four-game winning streak snapped, but on the season he's still 11-5-2 with a solid 2.60 GAA and .912 save percentage, having not allowed more than three goals in an outing since late November.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Fourth straight win

    Lindgren made 31 saves in a 9-2 win over the Canadiens on Saturday.

    Cole Caufield beat him twice. The first was a rocket one-timer from the left face-off circle on a 4-on-3 power play and the second came on a breakaway after the sniper stole the puck from Lars Eller. Lindgren has won four straight games and allowed just eight goals in that span. Darcy Kuemper is back with the Caps after missing most of December and both goalies are on a roll. With wins stacking up, Lindgren may press for more starts short term.

    Lindgren made 25 saves in a 4-1 win over the Jets on Friday.

    Lindgren has won three straight games and is 8-1-0 in his last nine starts. The Caps were on a real roll, as their captain Alex Ovechkin chased Gordie Howe's all-time goal mark. Hopefully they continue this hot streak now that Ovie has moved past Howe.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Hangs on for OT win

    Lindgren made 16 saves in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Red Wings.

    The 29-year-old netminder looked shaky early as Detroit jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first period despite only firing six shots on net in the frame, but Lindgren regained his focus and gave Washington a chance to mount a comeback. He's gone an impressive 7-1-0 while making eight straight starts, but with Darcy Kuemper now recovered from an upper-body injury, Lindgren and his 2.71 GAA and .910 save percentage on the season could return to backup duties as soon as Thursday against the Senators.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Yet another great performance

    Lindgren made 34 saves Saturday in a 5-2 win over the Maple Leafs.

    Auston Matthews and William Nylander both beat him, but Lindgren bricked things up otherwise. He has been a revelation since assuming the blue paint for the injured Darcy Kuemper (upper body). Lindgren is 6-1-0 in seven subsequent starts and has allowed two or fewer goals in six of those contests.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Facing Toronto

    Lindgren will be in the visiting crease against Toronto on Saturday, Samantha Pell of The Washington Post reports.

    Lindgren has taken over as the No. 1 goaltender with the Capitals as Darcy Kuemper (upper body) has missed the last six games. Kuemper is slated to return at any time and could be well enough Saturday to be the backup, so Lindgren's time as the starter could be coming to an end. Lindgren is 7-4-2 with a 2.76 GAA and a .910 save percentage. He'll face the Maple Leafs, who are tied for third in the NHL standings with a 19-6-6 record.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Five-game win streak snapped

    Lindgren stopped 24-of-26 shots in a 2-1 loss to the Stars on Thursday.

    The ice was tilted toward Jake Oettinger at the other end -- he stopped 45 shots. Lindgren actually carried a 1-0 lead into the third, but Jamie Benn tied it up on a rebound on a power play just 48 seconds into the frame. And Colin Miller scored 79 seconds later when his shot deflected off the Caps' Lars Eller's back and past Lindgren. The loss snapped the team's (and Lindren's) five-game win streak.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: First off ice Thursday

    Per Stephen Whyno of the Associated Press, Lindgren was the first goaltender off the ice at practice Thursday, indicating that he will guard the home goal against Dallas.

    Lindgren has won five straight games, improving his record to 7-3-2 this season. He has been stellar of late, giving up only nine goals on 146 shots during the winning streak and will provide Darcy Kuemper (upper body) with a battle for the top job, upon his return. Lindgren will be in tough against the Stars, who are tied for second in the NHL in goals scored with 110.

  • Capitals' Charlie Lindgren: Earns fifth straight win

    Lindgren stopped 26 of 29 shots in Tuesday's 7-3 win over the Blackhawks.

    While Lindgren allowed more than two goals for the first time this month, Alex Ovechkin's hat trick -- and 800th career goal -- supported the goalie to his fifth straight win. Lindgren improved to 7-3-2 with a 2.81 GAA and a .909 save percentage through 13 outings overall. His run as the unquestioned starter will end when Darcy Kuemper (upper body) returns, but Lindgren has done enough to earn a regular share of playing time larger than just a traditional backup role.
