Capitals' Darcy Kuemper: Guarding crease Thursday
Kuemper was the first goalie off the ice during the morning skate, indicating he will get the home start Thursday against the Penguins, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.
Kuemper will need to bring his A-game after struggling in his last two starts (4.68 GAA, .841 save percentage) during the Capitals' road trip. The 32-year-old can only hope that the return of Nicklas Backstrom (illness) and T.J. Oshie (personal) will spark the offense.... See More ... See Less

Capitals' Darcy Kuemper: Pulled from Saturday's game
Kuemper gave up four goals on 18 shots in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Golden Knights.

The loss will go on Kuemper's ledger, dropping him to 14-12-4 with a 2.55 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 31 starts.

Capitals' Darcy Kuemper: Overcomes early struggles
Kuemper allowed three goals on 30 shots in Monday's 4-3 overtime win over the Islanders.
Kuemper got off to a rocky start, allowing three goals within the first 24 minutes. The Capitals' offense then pushed back, and Kuemper was steady enough to keep the Islanders at bay to aid the comeback win. He's gone 3-2-1 with 17 goals allowed over six appearances in January -- rather pedestrian numbers for one of the stronger goalies in the league. The 32-year-old is up to 13-11-4 with a 2.55 GAA and a .917 save percentage through 29 contests overall. He'll likely yield the crease to Charlie Lindgren for Tuesday's home game versus the Wild before the Capitals embark on a road trip out west.... See More ... See Less

Aside from Alex Ovechkin, who potted his 30th goal of the season in the first period, the Capitals offense couldn't make anything happen against Carter Hart, while Kuemper had basically no chance on any of Philly's three tallies. The 32-year-old netminder has lost two straight starts in regulation after a 7-0-3 run that dated back to late November, but on the season he still sports a strong 2.54 GAA and .918 save percentage....

Capitals' Darcy Kuemper: First regulation loss since Nov. 19
Kuemper allowed four goals on 35 shots in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the Flyers.
Travis Konecny did half of the damage against Kuemper and also scored into an empty net with the goalie pulled for an extra attacker. The red-hot winger's hat trick handed Kuemper his first regulation loss since Nov. 19. Kuemper had been 7-0-3 since that defeat, and while Charlie Lindgren could demand more starts than the typical backup, Kuemper should remain a strong fantasy option when he's guarding the crease....
