The Capitals Faceoff podcast is anchored by NBC Sports Washington's Capitals correspondent JJ Regan and highlights all members of our Capitals coverage team including Capitals Insider Tarik El-Bashir. Regan will also reach out to a host of outside influencers both in the D.C. media and the national landscape.
Philipp Grubauer is 0-4-1 after five starts and he let it be known how much he hates losing. What can the Caps do to help out their backup netminder? Also, Nicklas Backstrom is not generating much in the way of offense, so why isn't Barry Trotz concerned? Hear it from the coach himself. JJ Regan, Tarik El-Bashir and Rob Carlin look at the factors contributing to the struggles of Grubauer and Backstrom, plus special guest Isabelle Khurshudyan of the Washington Post makes an appearance.
