‘The Instigators’ Debate the Capitals Goaltending Situation


'The Instigators' Debate the Capitals Goaltending Situation Once again, the Washington Capitals have been listed as one of the top contenders for the Stanley Cup this season, but can they really reach the top without solid goaltending?

The Instigators host Mike Milbury, along with analysts Tom Caron and Lyndon Byers debated the hot topic comparing the goaltending talents of Caps starter Michal Neuvirth and backup Semyon Varlamov.

The three analysts seemed to agree on one thing, the Capitals have the talent to score and can normally handle any game that goes into a shootout. The only problem is, when you get to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, it's crucial to have a well-rounded roster that includes a solid goaltender. Flashy goal scoring can only get you so far, which would explain why the Capitals have struggled in playoffs past.
