Grading Washington Capitals' Goaltenders in the 2013-14 Season

Team goaltending is an important part of success in the NHL. It is even celebrated with its own award. 

According to NHL.com, "the William M. Jennings Trophy is an annual award given to the goalkeeper(s) having played a minimum of 25 games for the team with the fewest goals scored against it. Winners are selected based on regular-season play." 

The Washington Capitals have not won the award since 1983-84. Braden Holtby and Michal Neuvirth may not break that streak this season, but their collective performance will be judged nonetheless. 

With that in mind, here are grades for the Washington Capitals' goaltenders as a unit. Each slide will grade the Capitals' goaltending performance in a specific statistical category, such as goals-against average, save percentage and special teams. 

 

Note: All statistics updated through Nov. 10 courtesy of NHL.com unless noted otherwise.
