Philipp Grubauer was a spectator Friday night against the Maple Leafs. He'll get the call against Ryan Miller and the last-place Sabres. Catch the action on CSN at 3 p.m.
Oates and Bylsma sat next to each other on bus rides and plane trips. On the road they flew into a city and found a coffee shop to visit and talk hockey. Back then the Pittsburgh Penguins coach saw a future behind the bench for Oates, who is just 11 games into his tenure with the Washington Capitals.
Braden Holtby is tasked with stopping a fair share of breakaways and odd-man rushes. But those aren't the scoring chances that the Washington Capitals goaltender fears.
In an alternate universe where NHL owners and players got a deal done over the summer to prevent a lockout, Adam Oates would be coaching the Washington Capitals. He'd be spending his early mornings at the practice facility and 41-plus nights at Verizon Center.
It's August and the Washington Capitals have been quiet since hiring Tim Hunter as assistant coach and Brett Leonhardt as video coach. But that didn't stop Michal Neuvirth from making some August news with comments he gave to the Czech website iSport.cz.
"He was always asking the questions that would get him one step ahead of the play," Hunter said. "As a coach, you're always trying to put your best players in the best positions to succeed, whether it's with a certain player or against certain players."
Hunter said he, Oates and assistant Calle Johansson are trying to treat their players the way they wanted to be treated in the same spots.
