With Michal Neuvirth ill, Capitals recall goaltender Philipp Grubauer for Philly game

ARLINGTON, Va. - The Washington Capitals have recalled goaltender Philipp Grubauer from Hershey of the AHL.

The Capitals brought in Grubauer on Wednesday morning because Michal Neuvirth is ill. He was expected to serve as the backup for Braden Holtby for the road game against the Philadelphia Flyers on Wednesday night.

The 21-year-old Grubauer has a 6-4-1 record in his rookie season with Hershey.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
