Some of Saturday’s contests are already well underway, but with every team set to play today, there will be a lot of action tonight as well.
Even with almost every team set to play in its season finale, it’s goaltender Braden Holtby that might have the night that will be remembered the longest. He’ll start for the Capitals and while Washington has already secured the Presidents’ Trophy, Holtby is fighting to tie Martin Brodeur’s single season wins record, which stands at 48.
This is Holtby’s third attempt to make history and while Washington will also play on Sunday, this could very well be his last start of the regular season. It’s appropriate then that the Capitals are in St. Louis where Brodeur now serves as an assistant general manager. St. Louis will counter with netminder Brian Elliott.
— Jonathan Quick is expected to get the nod for Los Angeles, but we don’t know who Winnipeg will start.
— Arizona’s starting goaltender also hasn’t been revealed yet, but Martin Jones will play between the pipes for the Sharks.
