Capitals' Braden Holtby: Snares start Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby will tend the home twine Thursday versus the Red Wings, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Holtby has taken control of the crease in his last two starts, allowing a combined four goals to the Sabres and Penguins in two tough road matchups. He should have a good shot to extend that success through at least Thursday's contest versus a Red Wings club averaging a league-low 1.94 goals per game on the road.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Tagged with shootout loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby stopped 24 of 26 shots Monday in a 3-2 shootout loss to Buffalo.

Holtby entered the night having won four of his last five outings, but Buffalo built a 2-0 lead after 40 minutes on goals by Victor Olofsson and Jack Eichel and nabbed the win in extra time. There was little Holtby could do on either goal, both of which were overpowering one-timers from the faceoff circles. He'll try to get back into the win column Thursday with a home date against the Red Wings.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Named starter versus Sabres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby will tend twine Monday in Buffalo, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Holtby is coming off a 5-2 win over Pittsburgh in his last start and has gone 4-1-0 in his previous five outings. The Sabres have dropped six games in a row but are 19-11-4 at home this season (vs. 10-20-4 in away games). This is a good matchup on paper for Holtby, but keep in mind Buffalo is no slouch at home.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Picks up win over Pens
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby turned aside 26 shots in Saturday's 5-2 win over the Penguins.

Sidney Crosby spoiled his shutout bid a little over five minutes into the third period, but it was still a strong outing for Holtby. He's now won four of his last five starts, pushing him to 25 wins for the sixth straight campaign, but his 3.14 GAA and .897 save percentage on the season remain disappointing.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Starting in Pitt
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby will start Saturday's matinee in Pittsburgh, Tarik El-Bashier reports.

Holtby gets the nod for this rivalry game with alternative Ilya Samsonov mired in a 0-4-1 rut over his last five decisions. While Holtby has been a mixed bag of late with a 3-3-1 record and 23 goals allowed over his past seven starts, the Penguins haven't been any better. Pittsburgh has won its last two games after going 0-6-0 in the previous six.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Take step back in home loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby gave up five goals on 29 shots in Wednesday's 5-2 loss to the Flyers.

Holtby wasn't exactly at fault on any of the Philadelphia goals but was tagged with his first loss in his last four starts. The 30-year-old was seemingly re-establishing himself as the lead goaltender in Washington, but he's still given up three-plus goals in each of his last six appearances. Holtby and the Capitals now embark upon a three-game road trip against the Rangers, Penguins and Sabres beginning Thursday in Manhattan.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: In goal Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby will get the starting nod versus Philadelphia at home Wednesday, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Holtby is riding a three-game winning streak during which he's given up nine goals on 108 shots (.917 save percentage). The netminder appears to have re-cemented himself as the No. 1 option in Washington after having split time periodically with Ilya Samsonov, who will take the second game of the Caps' back-to-back versus the Rangers on Thursday.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Wins again in Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby stopped 37 of 40 shots in a 4-3 win over the Wild on Sunday.

Holtby was tested frequently, but he proved up to the task despite a shaky first period. It counts as a third straight win for the 30-year-old goalie, who is now 24-13-5 in 45 appearances this year. Holtby has a 3.12 GAA and an .898 save percentage so far -- those would be the worst ratios of his career. The Capitals' next action is a back-to-back versus the Flyers on Wednesday, followed by a visit to the Rangers on Thursday.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Between pipes Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby will tend the twine for Sunday's road clash with Minnesota, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Holtby will get the night off versus Winnipeg on Thursday after racking up wins in each of his previous two outings. The veteran netminder has appeared in nine of the Caps' last 10 contests and seems to have reclaimed the starting gig, though Ilya Samsonov should continue to see plenty of action heading into the final stretch.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Wins 23rd game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby allowed three goals on 33 shots in a 4-3 shootout victory over the Jets on Tuesday.

The veteran has yielded three goals in each of his last two starts, but he won both games. Despite the goals, Holtby has also raised his save percentage the last couple games as well. Holtby is far from what he was a few years ago, especially in the games played category, as he's playing fewer and fewer games per season with age, but Holtby is still on track to win close to 30 games. He is 23-13-5 with a 3.12 GAA and .897 save percentage in 44 games this season.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Facing Jets
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby is slated to start between the pipes in Tuesday's home game versus Winnipeg, Tom Gulitti of NHL.com reports.

Holtby was pretty solid in his last start Sunday against the Penguins, stopping 32 of 35 shots en route to a 5-3 victory. The 30-year-old netminder will attempt to pick up his 23rd win of the season in a home matchup with a Jets team that's averaging 3.13 goals goals per game on the road this campaign, 10th in the NHL.

February 23, 2020 08:00 PM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Gets back in win column Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby made 32 saves in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Penguins.

The veteran netminder had been 0-2-1 over his last three starts, but Holtby came up with some big stops and got carried to victory by a four-goal third period for the Caps. His 3.21 GAA and .899 save percentage in February are shaky, but Ilya Samsonov's recent regression (4.13 GAA in his last five outings) has put Holtby back in the No. 1 job for Washington -- at least for now.

February 21, 2020 01:08 PM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Starting against Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby will defend the blue paint during Sunday's home game versus the Penguins, JJ Regan of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Holtby has struggled a bit recently, suffering three straight losses while posting a sub-par 3.07 GAA and .900 save percentage. He'll attempt to get back on track in a tough home matchup with a stacked Pittsburgh squad that's averaging 3.04 goals per game on the road this year, 11th in the NHL.

February 21, 2020 02:32 AM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Tagged with OT loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby yielded four goals on 32 shots in Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to Montreal.

Making his fourth consecutive start, Holtby was handed a loss for the third straight game. He was strong for most of the game, but a late second-period goal and an early tally to start the third shifted momentum for the Canadiens. Finally, Montreal finished things off in overtime in under a minute. The four-goal outing bumped Holtby's season GAA to 3.14 alongside an .896 save percentage. With back-to-back games coming up this weekend, both Holtby and Ilya Samsonov should see action.

Capitals' Braden Holtby: Making fourth straight start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby is slated to start between the pipes in Thursday's home matchup with Montreal, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Holtby was a little shaky in his last start Monday against Vegas, surrendering three goals on 29 shots en route to a tough 3-2 loss. The 30-year-old backstop will try to get back in the win column in a favorable home matchup with a free-falling Canadiens club that's lost five straight games.

February 18, 2020 12:36 PM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Stumbles in Vegas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby yielded three goals on 29 shots in a 3-2 loss to Vegas on Monday.

Holtby could hardly be faulted on the goals, all of which came on re-directs or one-timers on the doorstep. Still, a 3-0 deficit proved too steep a mountain to climb for the Capitals and Holtby suffered his second straight road loss. Holtby fell to 21-13-4 with a 3.11 GAA and .897 save percentage heading into Thursday's game against Montreal.

February 16, 2020 04:24 PM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Pegged for Monday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby will get the road start Monday versus the Golden Knights.

Holtby drew praise from head coach Todd Reirden, and with his third straight start on tap, he could retake the No. 1 job soon enough. The 30-year-old Holtby allowed exactly two goals in each of his last two starts while posting a .937 save percentage. The Golden Knights have been quite strong lately, posting 11 goals and recording a 2-0-1 record over the last three home contests.

February 16, 2020 02:32 AM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Keeps it close in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby gave up two goals on 29 shots in a 3-1 loss to the Coyotes on Saturday.

Holtby was able to give the Capitals a chance, but fellow netminder Antti Raanta was even sturdier for the Coyotes. Holtby dropped to 21-12-4 with a 3.11 GAA and an .897 save percentage through 40 appearances this season. The 30-year-old netminder will be a risky play against the Golden Knights on Monday if he draws the start.

February 15, 2020 02:12 PM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: Starting in Arizona
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby was the first goalie off the ice during his team's morning skate and will start Saturday's game versus the Coyotes, Tarik El-Bashir of The Athletic reports.

Holtby is coming off a 3-2 win over the Avalanche in his last start and will be looking to post back-to-back wins for the first time since the beginning of December. Arizona has only two wins in its last 10 games, so this is a good matchup for the Capitals' netminder.

February 14, 2020 10:04 AM
Capitals' Braden Holtby: On his game in road win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holtby turned away 32 shots in a 3-2 win over Colorado on Thursday.

First-period goals by Colorado's Andre Burakovsky and Mikko Rantanen staked the Avalanche to a 2-0 lead, but Holtby and the Capitals slowly crawled their way back. For Holtby, it was a strong follow-up to his perfect relief appearance Monday and quelled the memory of his most recent start, when he allowed seven goals. Holtby improved to 21-11-4 on the season with a 3.14 GAA and .896 save percentage.
