Washington Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper is back between the pipes for Thursday's contest versus the hosting Florida Panthers. Charlie Lindgren started Tuesday's loss to the Montreal Canadiens but Kuemper relieved him after Lindgren surrendered three goals on nine first-period shots. Kuemper allowed two goals on 17 shots in the rest of the way in an eventual 5-2 defeat. It's been a tough season for the veteran who has posted a 3.19 goals-against average and an .892 save percentage across 25 games (23 starts), going 11-11-2 in the process. He will take on a Panthers team that ranks 14th with 3.16 goals per game on the season.
Washington Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper collected his first shutout of the season on Tuesday, backstopping the team to a 2-0 victory over Anaheim. He was tested 24 times by the Ducks, but Kuemper stood tall the entire game and had a nice bounce-back performance. Entering Tuesday's action, Kuemper had allowed 15 goals across four January appearances. The 33-year-old is now sporting an 11-10-2 record for the season with a 3.13 goals-against average and a .895 save percentage.
Washington Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper will head out for a third consecutive win on Wednesday versus the Islanders. It's not been a great campaign for Kuemper, but he's picked up some form lately as he tries to re-establish himself as the No. 1 option between the sticks for Washington. Charlie Lindgren has seen a lot of action in recent weeks and has performed impressively. Kuemper enters Wednesday's matchup with a 7-5-2 record and has posted a 2.97 goals-against average with a .897 save percentage. It's not a good time to face the Islanders, who have lost just three times this month while scoring four goals per game.
Washington Capitals goaltender Darcy Kuemper could be available to the team for Saturday's game against the Columbus Blue Jackets after leaving Wednesday's practice early following being hit in the back of the leg by a shot. "I think so," Capitals bench boss Spencer Carbery said in regard to his ability to dress Saturday. "We'll have to check on how he responded to the practice. But he participated fully." Kuemper sat out a pair of games against the Devils and Islanders last weekend due to an unspecified injury amidst a slow start to his season. The veteran owns a 3.07 goals-against average and an .892 save percentage across eight starts, going 3-3-2 in the process.
