Michal Neuvirth, #30
Scoop: A 23-year-old goaltender from the Czech Republic, he saw his first regular action last season and went 27-12-4 with four shutouts.
Most shots faced in a game: 45
Ambitions: “Now that I’m in the NHL, I want to win the Stanley Cup.”
Mike Knuble, #22
Scoop: The backbone of the Capitals’ second line, the 39-year-old Knuble finished third on the team in goals in 2010–11 with 24.
Words to live by: “Be a good teammate, work hard for your teammate, and have fun with your teammate.”
Superstition: “I stop at Starbucks for coffee for every home game. It’s the same Starbucks and the same coffee. I drink it on the way to the rink, and then I’m ready.”
