Philipp Grubauer made 27 saves in Saturday's 3-2 win over the Vegas Golden Knights. Grubauer allowed two goals on 29 shots and finished the game off at Lake Tahoe with a .931 save percentage. This win was an overall great team effort on all fronts, and as a result Grubauer's season record improves to 9-3-0. This game also marks the seventh consecutive game in which Grubauer has posted a save percentage above .900. During that span he has also picked up six wins. With every game that he plays, Grubauer solidifies himself as a serious Vezina contender. He is a must-start in any fantasy situation whenever he hits the ice.
