SUNRISE, Fla. – Philipp Grubauer does not hang his head, ever. You can score a goal on him. That’s gonna happen in the game of hockey. But he’s not going to stew over it. Not gonna keep replaying it in his mind as the game continues on in front of him.
Make the next save. Have a short-term memory. Don’t have any rearview mirrors. Lots of goalies always try to tell themselves that, but Grubauer’s mind is forged with a steely discipline that just does not malinger over anything bad. Even when he plays a great game, you’d almost never know it by looking at him in the dressing room. Whatever happened, happened and there is absolutely, positively nothing that can be done to change that.
