Grubauer is Capitals Secret Weapon
The Washington Capitals have asked a lot of Holtby over the years, and especially during playoff time. With Grubauer playing well this year the Capitals will have the luxury of having two good goalies in the playoffs. The reason Grubauer has developed so well this year is because of his increase in playing time.
He is now 13-3-2 with 3 shutouts on the year with his most recent one coming Sunday against the Kings when the Caps won 5-0. His save percentage is .931 and he is letting in an average of 1.98 goals per game. Hopefully, Trotz keeps giving him starts to keep him hot for the playoffs because giving Holtby time off will keep him at his best.
