The Capitals have three healthy goaltenders with Braden Holtby, Michal Neuvirth and Philipp Grubauer, leaving coach Adam Oates to make a judgement call. Grubauer, who played in four straight prior to Washington's loss to Tuesday night the Philadelphia Flyers, will get the net against Carolina.
"Grubauer has been good," Oates said. "We've got three goalies, so we have to make some decisions. We've played Carolina twice and didn't have the best results, so we will change it up a little bit and put a fresh guy in there."
