Tomas Vokoun is fond of saying that it's hard for the Washington Capitals to win when they don't score goals. Scoring at least one is vital; "it's pretty simple math," he stated after a shutout loss in January.

Michal Neuvirth knows the feeling. At times this season, he's virtually needed a shutout to earn a victory.

But with just 13 games left, it would be tough for the Capitals to win and make the playoffs if not for some solid to stellar goaltending. Lately, Vokoun and Neuvirth have gone save for save and game for game, giving coach Dale Hunter a pleasant dilemma.
