The Washington Capitals plan to use backup goalie Philipp Grubauer more than they did last season.
Grubauer only made 16 starts, and appeared in 22 total games, in 2015-16, but with this season's schedule more condensed, it's not surprising that Washington wants to use him more. "What you’re seeing with the schedule is that there are some more back-to-backs, but also, you’re playing every second day," Capitals coach Barry Trotz said. ". . . I said to the goaltenders, if I could go Grubi one game and then Holts three, that type of situation, that would be in the perfect world what I’d like to do. How we’re playing and when we’re playing and our travel and all of that sort of messes with that." Just as a frame of reference, 20 or 21 starts would mean Grubauer got roughly 25% of the team's starts, so we're talking about a potentially meaningful, but not dramatic increase in his workload compared to 2015-16.
