THE GAME WAS OVER WHEN… Troy Brouwer buried a shootout goal under the bar on Ben Bishop to lift the Caps to a 6-5 shoutout win. Phillip Grubauer stopped Ondrej Palak to earn his first career shootout win in his first career shootout. Is Michal Neuvirth nervous?

The Washington Capitals found a way again Tuesday night, knocking off the Tampa Bay Lighting 6-5 in a shootout in one hell of a game.

After exchanging goals in the first...

Twenty-two games into this season there continues to be one glaring absence at even strength for the Capitals on most nights: the second line.
That unit featuring Troy Brouwer, Brooks Laich and a rotating cast of third players hasn’t been able to accomplish anything offensively at even strength. The two veteran wingers have combined for just five even-strength goals this year...

Fans received a Troy Brouwer "Movember" bobblehead at the Verizon Center on Tuesday. Here's the Capitals Outsider review.
When the Caps' promotional schedule came out, it came as little surprise that Troy Brouwer was finally getting a bobblehead. What did come as a surprise, though, was that Brouwer's was outfitted especially for Movember, as he is the captain of that effort.
Alex Ovechkin joins up with Movember, along with Troy Brouwer who is the captain of the Caps' effort to change the face of men's health.
Derek Stepan is apparently no worse for the wear after taking a seemingly inadvertent shot to the head from the Capitals’ Troy Brouwer in a neutral zone collision at 0:51 of the third period that sent the Blueshirts’ center to the room for approximately 10 minutes.
“I feel fine. It happens it’s part of the game” Stepan who took a regular shift after returning to the ice...
Derek Stepan of the New York Rangers was shaken up after he had an open-ice collision with the Washington Capitals forward Troy Brouwer.
The Capitals were breaking up ice with the puck in the opening minutes of the third period of Wednesday’s game when the collision occurred. Brouwer was cutting across the middle, while at the same time Stepan was backing up through the neutral...
No penalty on the play and Stepan did leave the game but did return.
Washington Capitals coach Adam Oates took a different approach after his team's third straight loss.
Instead of dwelling on the negative, Oates focused on what was good about the club's recent play.
One day after Oates' positive power talk during practice, the Capitals scored three goals in less than four minutes of the second period en route to a 4-2 win...

Before they were off to sign autographs for fans at Six Flags on Tuesday, Karl Alzner and Troy Brouwer teamed up to ride the Skycoaster. Here is what they (likely) weren't saying.
Caps Troy Brouwer, Nicklas Backstrom landscape and paint.
People seemed to like my last article talking about players that are outside of the usual top-10 talk and even the first round entirely. âStealsâ are found in every draft and sometimes they pan out and sometimes guys that nobody considers a steal becomes one in hindsight (Troy Brouwer fits that mold). Potential steals can be guys that have raw ability that just doesnât...

The Capitals lead the series 3-2. Game 6 is Sunday in New York.

Capitals fans were pumped up and ready for Game 5, including Troy Brouwer's biggest fans.
Coming into the series, the Rangers main focus was to keep the Capitals high flying power play off the ice by not taking penalties. But now, after the Capitals gave the Blueshirts six power play opportunities in Game 3, it's the team from our Nation's Capital saying they need to stay out of the box (via Washington Post)...
