It was Holtby’s third win in four starts.

Braden Holtby will make his 13th start of the season against the Arizona Coyotes on Tuesday night.

More than half of the Eastern conference sits between 22 and the Caps' 17 points, with a win, they can contribute mightily to controlling their own playoff fate as meat of the season gets under way. Holtby comes in sporting a .909 save percentage and a 2.41 GAA thus far.

Braden Holtby stopped 27 of 28 shots in Washington's 1-0 loss to New Jerssey on Friday night.

Holtby played well but his teammates were unable to give him any run support tonight. Mike Cammalleri beat Holtby in the third period to win the game for the Devils. The 25-year-old has been wildly inconsistent in his NHL career and that trend has continued this season. Holtby is 5-4-2 with a 2.41 goals-against-average and a .909 save-percentage.
Nov 14 - 10:35 PM

Washington netminder Braden Holtby earned his second consecutive win Tuesday as he stopped 24 of 26 shots to get by Columbus by a score of 4-2.

Thanks to some strong play of late, Holtby has improved his record to 5-3-2 and has bettered his peripheral stats in the process. He now sports a 2.54 GAA along with a .903 save percentage.
Nov 11 - 11:05 PM

Braden Holtby stopped 38 of 40 shots in Washington's 3-2 win over Chicago on Friday night.

The win snaps Holtby's personal three-game winless streak. It's also the first time in four starts that Holtby allowed less than four goals in a game. The 25-year-old has been up and down in his career, and this season has been much of the same. He has a record of 4-3-2 with a 2.59 goals-against-average and a.901 save-percentage.
Nov 7 - 11:39 PM

Braden Holtby and the Capitals were not at their best on Tuesday as they were upended by Calgary by a score of 4-3 in overtime.

Holtby had a night to forget as he allowed four goals on just 19 shots in the defeat and continues his early-season difficulties. With a 3-3-2 record, a GAA of 2.67 and an .891 save percentage, it's safe to say his performance under new coach Barry Trotz has been poorer than expected.
Nov 4 - 11:11 PM

Braden Holtby was knocked around in the Capitals’ 4-3 loss to the Lightning on Saturday night.

It wasn’t like Holtby was hung out to dry in this one, either, as he was called on to make 28 saves and gave up four goals in his second straight start. Holtby was a darkhorse to make a big leap forward this year, but consistency continues to elude him. He has a 2.51 goals-against average and .899 save percentage. For now, Holtby is more like a second goalie in fantasy leagues.

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby stopped 18 of the 22 shots he faced Wednesday night in a 4-2 loss to the visiting Detroit Red Wings.

Holtby is now 3-2-1. His goals-against average is 2.25 and he has a .907 save percentage. Many fantasy experts believe Holtby can become a strong goaltending option but to say he's already reached that level would be overstating it.
Oct 29 - 10:27 PM

Braden Holtby bounced back Saturday night with 20 saves in the Capitals’ 3-1 win over the Flames.

Holtby gave up three goals in a loss to Edmonton a game prior, so this was nice to see. He’s a sleeper this season as someone who could reach the upper tier of the league’s netminders. Holtby is now playing behind a much more structured team defensively, so that should help his cause. He has a 1.92 goals-against average and .922 save percentage.
Oct 26 - 1:05 AM

Braden Holtby stopped 17-of-20 shots fired his way in the Capitals 3-2 loss to the Oilers on Wednesday.

Holtby got a little unlucky on the game winning goal as the point shot was a knuckle-puck that got through a screen in front of him but other than that he didn't have too much to complain about. It wasn't really a great performance from the Caps' number one. Holtby still owns a solid 2.17 GAA to go with a .917 save percentage in five appearances this season.
Oct 23 - 12:44 AM

Braden Holtby and the Caps cruised to a 6-2 victory over the Devils on Thursday night, as the 25-year-old made 26 saves for the win.
