Holtby halts hungry Oilers in Caps’ shutout win

1 Comment

The Washington Capitals haven’t asked Braden Holtby to steal a bunch of games this season, but he reminded us that he can do just that on Monday.

Granted, it may have been fairly even at times,¬†although the Edmonton Oilers pressed quite a bit early on in Washington’s 1-0 win.

Holtby turned aside all 33 saves, making some dazzling ones including this stop that prompted relatively saucy language from the NHL’s official feed.

Holtby is now on a four-game winning streak, improving his overall record to 12-4-0 with nice individual stats.

Dmitry Orlov was the only player to score a goal in a competitive contest.
