  • Capitals' Braden Holtby: Saves 30 shots to top Oilers

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (9:50 pm ET) Holtby saved 30 of 31 shots during Friday's win over Edmonton.

    It was just more of the same from Holtby and the Capitals. Washington has now won 13 consecutive home games, and Holtby is up to 31 wins and improved on his already elite 1.99 GAA and .927 save percentage with Friday's gem. The reliability he offers in daily contests is worth considering nightly, and Holtby is a set-and-forget starter in seasonal leagues.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Gets the start Friday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (11:45 am ET) Holtby will guard the crease Friday against the Oilers, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    The reigning Vezina Trophy-winner will get the call Friday against an Oilers team that scored four goals on 29 shots against him back on Oct. 26. That blemish notwithstanding, Holtby is still an elite netminder so play him as you normally would.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Turns in another tidy 33-save outing

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/23/17) Holtby saved 33 of 34 shots during Wednesday's win over Philadelphia.

    There isn't much to say about Holtby at this point of the game. He's been an elite goalie for the past three seasons and is currently in the midst of the best campaign of the stretch. Wednesday's victory was his 30th win of the season, and he entered the contest with a rock-solid .926 save percentage and 2.01 GAA. Continue to view Holtby as a set-and forget goalie in seasonal leagues and a top-tier option that's usually worth spending up for in daily contests.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Guarding net Wednesday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/17) Holtby appears to be the starter for Wednesday's game in Philadelphia.

    The Capitals were a bit cryptic in naming Wednesday's starter, but the fact that Holtby hasn't started since Saturday makes him a good bet to get the nod. While the 27-year-old's recent play has been less than what we've come to expect from him, his defense has been bailing him out lately, allowing 23 shots or fewer in each of his last five starts. He'll face a slumping Flyers team Wednesday that is averaging just 1.63 goals per game in February.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Takes loss versus Red Wings

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/19/17) Holtby allowed two goals on 23 shots in a shootout loss to the Red Wings on Saturday.

    Coming off their bye week, the Capitals came out flat and yielded the first two goals of the game to the last-placed Red Wings. Washington came back to tie the score and send it into a shootout, but Holtby and the Capitals were unable to capture the victory. Prior to Saturday, the last time Holtby had taken a loss was Dec. 29. Heading into this game, he was 14-0-0 with a .924 save percentage in 2017. This will likely just be a bump in the road, as Holtby is once again a leading candidate for the Vezina Trophy.

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.
