  • Capitals' Braden Holtby: Saddled with loss Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/18) Holtby turned aside 30 of 33 shots during Thursday's 3-2 loss to the Panthers.

    Holtby had been marvelous through 59 minutes, but a redirect off Panthers center Vincent Trochek's blade during a power play in the final minute robbed him of a well-deserved win. The 28-year-old has had a sub-par season by his lofty standards in no small part to a pattern of third-period collapses by the skaters in front of him over the last few weeks. His pedigree and workload give him plenty of fantasy value across formats, and the defense corps should be buoyed by the addition of Michal Kempny and Jakub Jerabek, so a late-season turnaround is certainly possible.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Starting in crease Thursday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/22/18) Holtby will guard the visiting goal Thursday in a road matchup with the Panthers, The Washington Post reports.

    Holtby sports glaring differences in his home and road resumes and it doesn't bode well for his start Thursday. Over 19 appearances away from Capital One Arena, the 28-year-old netminder sports a 3.82 GAA and just an .891 save percentage. The Panthers total 3.16 goals per game at home this season, but a negative goal differential on home ice gives Holtby some hope that to add another tally to the win column Thursday.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Gives up four to Bolts in loss

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/20/18) Holtby allowed four goals on just 19 shots during Tuesday's 4-2 loss to Tampa Bay.

    Not only was this a daunting matchup, it was also a tough schedule spot for the Capitals, as they played an afternoon game Monday against Buffalo. While Washington showed up to play and outshot the Bolts 37-19, Tampa Bay scored four goals from prime real estate. It's been a year-long problem, as the Caps have allowed the most high-danger scoring chances per 60 minutes (13.02) in the league. It hasn't completely crippled Holtby's fantasy value, but it's a main reason for his significant statistical decline to a .909 save percentage and 2.95 GAA this year.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Yanked after two periods

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Holtby was pulled from the crease after allowing six goals on 33 shots during Saturday's 7-1 loss to the Blackhawks.

    The stat line certainly was poor, but Holtby would have fared better if his teammates hadn't left him hanging out to dry with 33 shots allowed in just two periods of work. The 28-year-old has allowed four or more goals in each of his last three starts and it's safe to say his 2.82 GAA and .913 save percentage entering Saturday's action will not be enough to warrant a third straight season of Vezina Trophy consideration. Fantasy owners should ride out the slump, as the fourth-round pick from the 2008 NHL Entry Draft is bound to bounce back before too long.

    Capitals' Braden Holtby: Defending net Saturday

    by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com
    (2/17/18) Holtby will start in goal Saturday against the Blackhawks in Chicago, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

    Holtby's most recent efforts between the pipes have been less than stellar, as he's surrendered nine combined goals in his last two starts. Those have both resulted in overtime losses, but he will attempt to earn a better result against a Blackhawks team entering the contest with an eight-game losing streak.
