"Our goal right now is to get a lot better on home ice, to get it to where teams are afraid to come in here again," says Caps goaltender Braden Holtby.

That makes it more intimidating for teams to come in, when they know it’s going to be extremely loud the whole time. It starts with us doing little things to really establish a hard game to play against, and then the success will come and the fear of coming in here will come as well." The Capitals host the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday night.
