      Kuemper will start Thursday in Florida.

      Charlie Lindgren started in the Capitals' return from the All-Star break on Tuesday but did not finish the contest. Kuemper entered the game in relief of Lindgren, saving 15 of 17 shots (.882 SV%) in an eventual 5-2 loss to the Montreal Canadiens. Kuemper has been wildly inconsistent this season, highlighted by his performances in his last two starts, in which he allowed five goals in one contest and recorded a shutout in the other. As such, the Capitals are sizeable +237 road underdogs heading into action against the Florida Panthers on Thursday night.

      Kuemper will start Tuesday at Minnesota.

      Kuemper served as the backup for the last two Capitals' games but will return to the crease on Tuesday against his former club, the Minnesota Wild. Kuemper is 4-5-1 in his career against Minnesota, with a 2.78 GAA and .908 SV%, well below his career average. Taking that into consideration, along with the Capitals being shut out 3-0 to the St. Louis Blues in their last game, the Capitals are +147 road underdogs on Tuesday against the Wild, who are riding a two-game winning streak.

      Kuemper will start Tuesday vs. the Ducks.

      After allowing three or more goals in six straight games (2-4-0), Kuemper served as the backup to Charlie Lindgren on a back-to-back set over the weekend but will return to the crease on Tuesday in a favourable matchup against the Anaheim Ducks. The Ducks pulled off an improbable 5-4 overtime victory over the Florida Panthers last night, but, playing on back-to-back nights, the Capitals are sizeable -171 home favourites.

      Kuemper will start Thursday vs. Seattle.

      Charlie Lindgren (upper body) will return to the Capitals lineup Thursday but Darcy Kuemper will start his third straight game as he takes on Seattle at home. The 33-year-old has struggled mightily in what has been the worst statistical season of his 12 year career, with his 10-9-2 record, 3.24 GAA and .893 SV%. He takes on the NHL's hottest team in the Seattle Kraken Thursday, who has won seven straight games and has not lost in regulation in 10 contests.

      Darcy Kuemper will start Wednesday vs. the New York Rangers.

      Kuemper did not play the last two games before the Christmas break for the Capitals but seems to be turning the corner on a terrible start to the 2023-24 campaign. In his first 13 games (5-6-2), Kuemper posted an ugly .887 SV% but is boasting a stellar .947 SV% in three games since (3-0-0), riding three consecutive quality starts for the first time this season. That said, the Capitals are sizeable +181 road underdogs against a New York Rangers team that has won four of their last five outings (4-1-0).

      On the front end of a back-to-back for the Capitals, Kuemper will start for the second straight game. Kuemper is riding consecutive quality starts and wins for only the second time this season, and will look for his first three-game winning streak on Wednesday.

The Capitals are -114 home favourites against a New York Islanders team that has been scoring at an impressive rate lately, averaging 4.1 goals per game over their last 11 contests (7-2-2). Kuemper allowed three goals on 21 shots (.857 SV%) in a losing effort to the Islanders last month.

The Capitals are +114 road underdogs against a red-hot Arizona Coyotes team that has won four straight games, outscoring their opposition 13-5.

      Kuemper will start in Anaheim on Thursday.

      Kuemper will get his third start in five games as he takes the crease Thursday in Ahaheim after allowing two goals on 23 shots (.913 SV%) in a loss to San Jose in his last appearance. The 33-year-old veteran has struggled this season which has led to almost an even split in Washington's crease, with his 4-4-2 record, .894 SV% and 2.95 GAA. He takes on the struggling Anaheim Ducks, who are looking to snap a seven-game losing streak and are 28th in the NHL in goals per game (2.68).
