It’s happened. The Caps no longer seem to have a No. 1 goalie anymore, they have a No. 1 and 1a. That’s right, we have a goalie rotation in Washington. “There's no sense riding one,” Barry Trotz said after practice on Monday. “[Braden Holtby] is coming back and looking better every game and [Philipp Grubauer] played pretty well for a long stretch so why not have both of them going?” Grubauer got the start Sunday in Philadelphia and Holtby is slated to get the start Tuesday against the Dallas Stars. After that we will have to wait and see. Trotz has no layout for which goalie he wants to start and when in the remaining ten games. He is not thinking about each goalie splitting five games or which one he wants to use more. Nope. Trotz has just one thing on his mind. It is all about who starts the next game, that’s it. “I think you just go with a guy that's hot at the time and your team feels comfortable with and go from there,” Trotz said.
