Philipp Grubauer will get the start in Tuesday's game against the Florida Panthers.

Feb 1 - 8:05 PM

Philipp Grubauer made 12 saves on 13 shots in 32:46 of relief Saturday, a 4-1 Capitals loss to the Sabres.

Braden Holtby was yanked in the middle of the second period after giving up three goals on 16 shots. If Barry Trotz was planning on starting Grubauer against the Rangers on Sunday, perhaps he changes his mind and lets Holtby get the home start since he got some extra rest here. Grubauer has a 2.21 GAA and .922 SV%.
Jan 16 - 9:49 PM

Philipp Grubauer relieved Braden Holtby of his duties after the starter was yanked after just 27:14 of play on Saturday night.

Holtby stopped just 13 of 16 shots through just under half the game, prompting the backup Grubauer to come in.
Jan 16 - 8:30 PM

Philipp Grubauer stopped 32 of 33 shots in Sunday's 7-1 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Only Mike Hoffman was able to beat Washington's backup goalie tonight. Grubauer has a 5-3-1 record with a 2.23 goals-against-average and a .922 save percentage in nine games this season.
Jan 10 - 10:36 PM

Philipp Grubauer will face Ottawa on Sunday night.

Through eight games and seven starts this season, Grubauer has produced a 4-3-1 record with 18 goals against and a .914 save percentage. He's never seen Ottawa before, and both teams are playing on consecutive nights after emotional wins.
Jan 10 - 5:07 PM

Philipp Grubauer made 33 saves, but fell to the Hurricanes 4-2 in the process.

To his credit, Grubauer turned away all seven shots he saw on a combined three Carolina power plays. So he only allowed a trio of even strength goals. Still, his record falls to 4-3-1 with 18 goals against and a .914 save percentage.

Philipp Grubauer will tend to Washington's cage on Thursday versus Carolina.

He has a 4-2-1 record with a .914 save percentage and a 2.30 goals-against average when the Capitals have rested Braden Holtby. Holtby has been excellent this season, but he will get the night off after wins over Buffalo on Monday and Wednesday.

Philipp Grubauer, filling in for first-string goalie Braden Holtby, made 31 saves to lead the Washington Capitals to a 2-1 triumph over the Hurricanes in Carolina Monday night.

Grubauer improved his overall record to 4-2-1 and his goals-against average to 2.30. His save percentage is 9.14. Holtby is enjoying an all-star season and will get the vast majority of starts in goal for Washington, so don't go grabbing Grubauer for your fantasy team. For the Caps, though, Grubauer's performance Monday was important as he was solid and undoubtedly gave the club confidence should he be needed.

Philipp Grubauer will get the start in Monday's game against Carolina.

Starter Braden Holtby gave up three goals in the first period of Sunday's win against the Rangers, but bounced back by not allowing a goal the rest of the way. Still, Barry Trotz admitted that he thought about pulling his number one goalie after the first frame. It's probably a good idea to give him some extra rest ahead of the Christmas break. Grubauer has a 3-2-1 record with a 2.53 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage.

Philipp Grubauer stopped all seven shots he faced in Washington's 5-3 win over Tampa Bay on Friday.

Grubauer entered the game after starter Braden Holtby allowed three goals on 12 shots. The Lightning led 3-0 when the Caps backup entered the game, but the switch seemed to spark Washington, as they came back to win in regulation. The 24-year-old has a 3-2-1 record with a 2.53 goals-against-average and a .901 save percentage.
Fri, Dec 18, 2015 10:22:00 PM

Thu, Dec 10, 2015 12:31:00 PM

Philipp Grubauer has started the back end of each back-to-back set the Capitals have had this season, so it makes sense to expect him back in net on Saturday against Toronto.

That is, of course, assuming Braden Holtby gets Friday's game against Tampa Bay. Considering where Tampa Bay and Toronto are in the standings, we'd be surprised if there was another outcome. For the season, Grubauer is 2-1-1 and has stopped 99 of 110 combined shots thus far but he's had just one start with fewer than three goals against.
Thu, Nov 26, 2015 11:38:00 PM
