Michal Neuvirth will be the starting goaltender when the Washington Capitals open their season Saturday vs. Carolina. Last season, Neuvirth was Washington's primary goaltender, going 27-12-4 with a 2.45 goals-against average. He was backed up by Semyon Varlamov, who had a dalliance with the KHL in Russia before being traded to Colorado. In the offseason, the Capitals signed free agent Tomas Vokoun, whom coach Bruce Boudreau declared the team's top goaltender. Vokoun was 22-28-5 with a 2.55 GAA for Florida last season. "The coaches told me after practice today," Neuvirth told csnwashington.com. "I was a bit surprised. I opened the season last year and now I open it this year as well." In the preseason, Neuvirth had a 1.34 GAA and .940 save percentage. He shut out Carolina in his only start vs. the Hurricanes last season.
