  • Capitals' Braden Holtby: Earns Vezina Trophy

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (6/22/16) Holtby won the 2016 Vezina Trophy on Wednesday at the NHL Awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

    Holtby, Ben Bishop of the Lightning, and the Kings' Jonathan Quick were finalists for the award. All three had outstanding campaigns in 2015-16, hence the nominations, but it was Holtby tying legendary goalie Martin Brodeur for the most regular-season wins in NHL history at 48. He's under contract with the Caps for five more years and will command $6.1 million annually.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Pens end series after overtime goal on netminder

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/16) Holtby saved 38 of 42 shots during Tuesday's 4-3 overtime loss to the Penguins in Game 6.

    After giving up back-to-back power-play goals in the second period, Holtby sharpened up in a must-win situation with several sensational saves. Unfortunately it wasn't enough for Washington, as the Caps postseason run has come to a premature end. The netminder finishes the playoffs with two shutouts (both against Philadelphia), a 1.67 GAA and .941 save percentage.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Patrolling crease for Game 6

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/10/16) Holtby will defend the crease on the road Tuesday night for Game 6 against the Penguins.

    Holtby came up huge in Game 5 on Saturday, stopping 30 of 31 shots for a victory to stretch the series. Washington has scored more than two goals in a game just twice in this second round, and not surprisingly, those are the times Holtby has ended up in the win column. Look for the 26-year-old netminder to continue doing all he can to avoid falling short in the playoffs for the second straight season Tuesday.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: 30 saves help keep team alive

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/8/16) Holtby stopped 30 of 31 shots in Saturday's Game 5 win over the Penguins.

    A terrific showing from Holtby, who helped the Caps avoid elimination. The 26-year-old had given up three goals in his previous two games and has been unlucky this series, but he rebounded with a clutch performance Saturday. Holtby is sporting a .947 save percentage this postseason and will have his hands full once again as the series shifts back to Pittsburgh for Game 6.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Looking to save season Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (5/7/16) Holtby will command the crease at home Saturday for Game 5 against the Penguins.

    You can't fault Holtby for the Caps' 3-1 series deficit. The man owns the skinniest GAA (1.59) of any netminder still in the hunt for Lord Stanley's Cup. But to stay afloat in the postseason, he'll need offensive dynamos like Evgeny Kuznetsov - two playoff points - to get it going in the attacking zone. It's hard to believe that the Capitals, winners of the Presidents' Trophy, find themselves ranked outside the top-10 playoff teams with an average of 2.3 goals per game, but then again, it wouldn't be the playoffs if everything lined up exactly as expected.

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.
