After leading his team to an unlikely tournament playoff berth on Tuesday, Washington Capitals backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer was back in net for Germany in their quarterfinals matchup against Canada.
Grubauer was a brick wall, making 48 saves. However, it wasn’t enough for the tournament’s host team to advance. Riding goals by Mark Scheifele and Jeff Skinner, Canada won 2-1.
Grubauer was named Germany’s player of the game.
