At the moment, there's absolutely no goaltending controversy for the Washington Capitals. But it's not playoff darling Braden Holtby who grabbed a hold of the starting job.
Goaltender Michal Neuvirth was smiling while sitting at his locker, almost for the first time since returning to North America. First he got the flu, then he watched as Braden Holtby started the first two games of the Washington Capitals' season.
If Braden Holtby hasn't done enough to lock down the No. 1 goaltender job and lock it down hard, one can only wonder what people were watching the last time hockey was actually played.
Braden Holtby's mask wasn't supposed to be a metaphor.
It's uncertain how long veteran goaltender Tomas Vokoun will be out after apparently aggravating a groin injury Thursday. But with the end of the regular season just a little over a week away, it's likely the Washington Capitals will have to go through the home stretch with Michal Neuvirth and Braden Holtby between the pipes.
Tomas Vokoun works in Washington, but his life is still in South Florida. His wife and daughters live here despite the goaltender playing for the Capitals.
It was a simple question asked of Nashville Predators coach Barry Trotz, who had Tomas Vokoun as a goaltender for eight seasons: Did facing a ton of shots take a toll?
Tomas Vokoun is not a loser.
