Michal Neuvirth makes ridiculous glove save on Frans Nielsen

Michal Neuvirth was just an afterthought for most of November, January, and all of December. However, over the Capitals’ last three game he’s taken control the starting job over Braden Holtby and Philipp Grubauer. Though he picked up the loss on Tuesday night, he only allowed one goal and made 27 saves, one of which was in style. This acrobatic windmill save may very well be...

Capitals re-assign goaltender Grubauer to AHL

The Washington Capitals have re-assigned goaltender Philipp Grubauer to Hershey of the AHL. The Capitals made the move Monday. Grubauer had been on pace to establish himself as the Capitals' No. 1 goalie until he was pulled from the last two games.

WATCH: Braden Holtby make “miraculous” save with end of stick

It’s been the Philipp Grubauer show for the past month in DC, and Braden Holtby has seen just four games in that time. But he made the most of his time in net tonight against the Columbus Blue Jackets. On a night where both Grubauer, and the team didn’t look anything like the Capitals that fans are used to seeing (you know the ones that won?) Holtby was called on tonight to relieve...

The Three-Headed Monster in Goal

If the organization feels that Philipp Grubauer is a capable NHL start or backup, why rush into anything? If they are showcasing him for a trade, a far less likely option, all they have done is upset Braden Holtby and Michal Neuvirth.

Scott Audette/NHLI via Getty Images The Rangers played a very good game against Washington on Friday night, but came out on the losing end after Philipp Grubauer made 38 saves.

Hurricanes fail to convert chances in loss to Capitals

RALEIGH, N.C. -- On a night when nothing seemed to come easy for the Carolina Hurricanes, it seemed somehow appropriate that the Washington game-sealing goal was an empty-netter. Alex Ovechkin scored his 400th NHL goal against an empty net to make it 4-2 at the 19:35 mark of the third.  It was a tale of two very different power plays coming into the game, but not so much during...
