How to fix the Caps’ goalie problems

By Peter Stastny The Caps have yet to play a single game without backup goaltender Marcus Johansson.

The NHL announced Tuesday that the team has signed Johansson to a two-year, $4.8 million contract extension.

The Capitals will have six netminders on the roster through the end of the 2019-20 season.

The team will use a mix of the young and veteran netmindors to start each of those six games.

Johansson has appeared in four games this season and has not recorded a point.

Johansson is the first Caps goaltender to appear in the NHL All-Star Game since the team’s inaugural season in 1996-97.

He was also the starting goalie for the 1994 and 1996 World Championships.

He joined the Caps in the offseason after serving as a backup in the 2015 Stanley Cup Playoffs.

Johanson made his NHL debut against the New Jersey Devils on Sunday.

The Caps lost to the Devils 3-2.

Johanson has made five starts this season, but has only recorded a save percentage of .902 (19-38-11).

He has allowed three goals and 10 shots on goal in those games.

The 29-year-old has played in every NHL game for five seasons.
