  • Capitals' Braden Holtby: Comes away victorious in goalie duel

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Holtby saved 29 of 30 shots and all three in the shootout Thursday, delivering a 2-1 win over Columbus.

    This was an intense battle of two Vezina-contending goalies, but Holtby ultimately got the best of Sergei Bobrovsky, who made 44 stops of his own. After skidding for a few games, Holtby's found his stride again, going 4-0-1 in his last five. As amazing as last year's 48-win season was, Holtby has been even better this year, as his 2.03 GAA and .926 save percentage are both career bests.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Tending twine Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/23/17) Holtby will patrol the crease against the Blue Jackets on Thursday, JJ Regan of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

    Considering the playoff implications of Thursday's contest, it should come as no surprise that the Caps will go with Holtby. The 27-year-old has been rather average of late, as he's posted a 3-3-1 record and .885 save percentage over his last seven games. Despite his recent form, the netminder remains one of the top goalies in the world, as evidenced by his 37 victories; just three shy of reaching the 40-win mark for the third straight season.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Douses Flames

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/17) Holtby stopped 29 of 31 shots in Tuesday's 4-2 victory over the Flames.

    Calgary goalie Brian Elliott came in burning hot as the winner of 11 straight starts, but Holtby was on top of his game, easily outdueling his veteran counterpart. It was a milestone contest for him, too -- his 300th NHL appearance. One of the stars of the league in net, Holtby is just three victories away from his third straight campaign of 40-plus.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Playing 300th NHL game Tuesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/21/17) Holtby will guard the crease Tuesday against the Flames, Tarik El-Bashir of CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

    Tuesday will mark Holtby's 300th game with the Capitals, making him just the second goalie in franchise history to reach that mark. More impressively, the Saskatchewan native's 185 wins are second only to Hall of Fame goaltender Ken Dryden in the first 300 games of a career. In the midst of another Vezina-worthy campaign, he should be started in all formats, even against a hot (pun intended) Flames team.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Wins 36th with 26-save performance

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (3/19/17) Holtby earned his 36th win of the season with a 26-save performance Saturday over the Lightning.

    It was just Holtby's second win in his last six starts. He has allowed 19 goals in those six and that's well above his norm. We don't think there's anything of concern going on -- Holtby is a Vezina winner who might just need a little rest to be fresh for the playoffs.

It was also his 40th win of the season -- easily a personal-best for the 25-year-old -- as he's been one of the most reliable goalies all season.
