The Washington Capitals are carrying three goaltenders right now. Why? Not sure. But with Philipp Grubauer earning another start tonight, Braden Holtby decided to take a shift or two on defense during this morning’s practice.
I’m in love with this photo right now. I’d take Holtby over Urbom any day of the week.
In other news from this morning:
- I’m still and forever on #TeamHoltby. Here’s why.
- Forever-injured Brooks Laich is going to give it a go tonight. He will play limited minutes on the fourth line. Aaron Volpatti will sit, which may be for the best.
- Bruce Boudreau and Mathieu Perreault make their returns tonight. They spoke to The Washington Post’s Katie Carrera ahead of tonight’s game. Boudreau told Katie his current GM challenged him more than George McPhee. Meanwhile, Perry seems pretty freaking happy in Anaheim.
- Want to show Perry some love tonight? Remember, we have these sweet downloadable and print-out-able #PerryCelly signs here that one of our readers made. Some construction/pasting required.
- Finally, here’s your factoid of the day from Peter Hassett.
