When Washington Capitals goaltender Michael Neuvirth was injured before a scheduled start against the Montreal Canadiens on Friday afternoon, the Capitals had to scramble to find a goaltender to backup Braden Holtby. 

Ultimately they were forced to turn to their Video Coach, 31-year-old Brett Leonhardt:

This is actually the second time the 6,7 Leonhardt, a former Div. III college goaltender, has been forced into action as the Capitals backup. Back in 2008 Leonhardt dressed as a backup following a Jose Theodore injury during a morning skate.
