The Washington Capitals video production crew has had a busy week. Two days after airing an emotional tribute for Jay Beagle, who returned for the first time as a member of the Vancouver Canucks, the Caps saluted their longtime Stanley Cup-winning backup goaltender Philipp Grubauer.
Grubauer was traded to the Colorado Avalanche over the offseason along with Brooks Orpik to clear cap space and give the German goaltender an opportunity to become a full-time starter.
Ahead of the game, Grubauer said that “I’ve had this date circled. Washington is always going to be home.”
