  • Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Holds off Sabres for sixth win

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/18) Grubauer made 32 saves during Monday's 3-2 win over Buffalo.

    The German backstop stepped in admirably in this contest, and he now sports a 6-7-3 record, .916 save percentage and 2.62 GAA for the campaign. Those numbers aren't as strong as Grubauer's past results, but he's still a solid fantasy option in most matchups. The Capitals are atop the Metropolitan Division again, after all.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Tending twine Monday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/18) Grubauer will face off with the Sabres on Monday, Joe Yerdon of NHL.com reports.

    Grubauer will get the opening end of the Capitals' back-to-back in order to save Braden Holtby for Tuesday's matchup with the Lightning. In his previous clash with Buffalo, the 25-year-old Grubauer made 29 of a possible 31 saves in a losing effort. Fantasy owners should note that the netminder will not have to deal with Jack Eichel (ankle), who is out long term.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Turns aside 11 shots in relief Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Grubauer stopped 10 of 11 shots faced during Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

    Grubauer took the crease to start the third period after starter Braden Holtby was shelled for six goals on 33 shots in the first two frames. The 25-year-old has the better stats of the two goalies (2.65 GAA and .915 save percentage) and should see somewhere between 25-30 games of work annually, but remains little more than a decent spot start until he can exit Holtby's shadow.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Stands tall in road win over Wild

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/15/18) Grubauer turned away 32 of 34 shots during Thursday's 5-2 win over Minnesota. He also added an assist.

    With Braden Holtby locked in as Washington's No. 1, Grubauer's opportunities have been few and far between this season. However, the German backup has posted respectable numbers when called upon with a 5-7-3 record, .915 save percentage and 2.65 GAA. Additionally, Thursday's strong showing highlights his upside as a streaming option or DFS candidate.

    Capitals' Philipp Grubauer: Yields four goals in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/4/18) Grubauer allowed four goals on 31 shots in a 4-3 loss to the Golden Knights on Sunday.

    The past few seasons, there hasn't been a better backup goaltender in the league, but Grubauer has struggled in 2017-18. He is now 4-7-3 with a .913 save percentage. His save percentage was 13 points better than that last season, and his GAA was already more than half a goal worse than 2016-17 before he yielded four Sunday. It looked like Grubauer was turning a corner with his recent play too, but this was a major setback. At this point, it's hard to trust Grubauer unless he is set up with a very juicy matchup.
