Holtby’s cure for triple-OT loss? Win the Stanley Cup

8 Comments

Braden Holtby was on the wrong end of the New York Rangers-Washington Capitals 2-1 triple OT marathon, but you’d be zany to pin the lose on the young netminder. He made some big saves and drew rave reviews for his poise under high-level pressure. After the game, Holtby offered a remedy for the sadness of such a loss to Katie Carrera.

“Maybe I’ll accept it after the fourth round, where we win,” Holtby said.

Boy, the Capitals might have stumbled on a goalie with the swagger – and maybe even the skills – to get it done. Does that register as something of a guarantee to you?

If Washington is still in the mix around the “fourth round,” it might just interfere with one hopeful Caps fan’s plans:
