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...

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.

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.
