Philipp Grubauer made 32 saves on 35 shots Saturday night to life the Capitals to a 4-3 win over the Stars.
Grubauer did not get off to a strong start as the Stars outshot the Caps 25 to 13 in the first two periods. He gave up one goal on 15 shots in the first and two on 10 shots in the second, but settled down once his teammates began to score in the third. Grubauer faced another 10 shots in that period, but was perfect and sent the game into overtime. Jay Beagle scored the game winner 19 seconds into the extra period, so Grubauer did not have to face another shot. Grubauer now has a record of 9-1-2 with a save percentage of .925.

Philipp Grubauer will be in net for the Capitals against the Stars on Saturday.

Look for Philipp Grubauer to get the start in three of the Capitals next eight games.

As good as starter Braden Holtby has been this season, Grubauer is matching him every step of the way with an 8-1-1 mark to go with a 1.74 GAA and a .935 save percentage. Coach Barry Trotz suggested that Grubauer will play once during the upcoming Dad's trip and with the Capitals having a pair of back-to-back games upcoming, he will get a start in each of those games. He is worth putting on your roster as he has been great this season.

Philipp Grubauer collected the second shutout of the season, and career, by stopping all 24 pucks the Flyers sent his way in the 5-0 matinee win on Sunday.

The young understudy was simply sensational, turning away all nine Philadelphia power play shots across five opportunities. To wit, the Caps didn't score until mid-way through the game and then potted four in the third period. Suffice it to say, Grubauer was their backbone today and improves his record to 8-1-1 thus far.
