Caps' Holtby To Make Start Satudray

News: Braden Holtby will be in the crease Saturday against the Devils, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Braden Holtby has delivered steady play in the net for the Capitals through eight December starts, posting a 5-1-2 record, 2.34 GAA and .920 save percentage. He's a quality option versus a Devils squad that is playing the second game of a back-to-back set and doesn't offer much offensive firepower.

Holtby, Caps End Jackets' Winning Streak

News: Braden Holtby gave up four goals on 26 shots, but got enough help from his offense to topple the Jackets by a 5-4 tally in overtime.
Analysis: After Braden Holtby stopped 28 of 29 and took 20 rounds to lose a shootout Tuesday, he can safely say that he deserved this win despite the ugly stat line. And, hey, it's an accomplishment to end a winning streak as impressive as the seven-game run the Jackets had been on entering action Thursday.

Caps To Start Holtby On Thursday

News: Braden Holtby will be between the pipes Thursday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Braden Holtby missed out on his 13th victory of the season Tuesday against the Panthers by the narrowest of margins, falling in a shootout that lasted an NHL-record 20 rounds. The netminder has been mostly good of late, with save percentages of .916, .869, .928 and .965 over his last four starts, but he's taken two overtime losses during that span. He'll probably need to turn in another superb outing Thursday if he hopes to topple the Jackets and their netminder, Sergei Bobrovsky, who owns a 7-0 record, 1.63 GAA and .950 save percentage thus far in December.

Holtby, Caps Lose Record-Setting Shootout

News: Braden Holtby stopped 28 of 29 shots through 65 minutes Tuesday against Florida, but ended up taking a 2-1 loss after a record-setting 20-round shootout.
Analysis: Braden Holtby had never lost to the Panthers before, and even though there's a first time for everything, he delivered a credible performance in this one, including stopping 14 of 20 shootout tries. He remains undefeated in regulation over the last six games (4-0-2) and has allowed just 11 goals in that span.

Capitals' Holtby Starts Tuesday

News: Braden Holtby will start Tuesday against the Panthers.
Analysis: Braden Holtby has played well in December, going 4-1-1 and posting a .923 save percentage in six starts. He will take on a Florida team that sits 27th in the league in scoring, but has scored at least three goals in five of its last eight games.

Holtby Sharp In Caps' Win

News: Braden Holtby made 26 saves in Washington's 4-2 win over Tampa Bay on Saturday night. Several of the saves were game savers.
Analysis: He was particularly sharp on a two-minute, five-on-three power play. He even reached back with his stick during a flurry to pull the puck away as it was about to roll across the goal line. The win was his fourth in his last five starts. He's a solid play for your twine tent.

Caps Turn To Holtby On Saturday

News: Braden Holtby will be in the crease Saturday against the Lightning.
Analysis: Braden Holtby saw his three-game winning streak narrowly come to an end Thursday, as he was ultimately foiled by a goal by the Blue Jackets' Nick Foligno with 19 seconds left in overtime. While he had defeated the Lightning his previous time out, he still surrendered three goals in the victory. Tampa's high-powered offense is certainly capable of replicating that production again, putting Holtby at risk for another loss Saturday if his mates fail to pick him up.

Holtby, Caps Topped In Overtime

News: Braden Holtby allowed three goals on 23 shots Thursday, with the third one coming off the stick of the Jackets' Nick Foligno with 19 seconds remaining in overtime.
Analysis: Ah, the difference between a solid 20 saves on 22 shots in a shootout decision and a not-so-pretty 20 saves on 23 shots in an overtime loss sure can be a slim one. A tough way to lose for Braden Holtby and the Capitals, who will get a day off to think things over before they host Tampa Bay's high-powered offense Saturday.

Capitals' Holtby Gets The Nod Thursday

News: Braden Holtby will start Thursday against the Blue Jackets.
Analysis: Braden Holtby will be seeking his fourth win in a row Thursday night. He held the Blue Jackets to just two goals in a Nov. 11 victory, but Columbus has played better of late, winning four straight and scoring three goals in each of its last three contests.

Caps' Holtby Saves 33 For Third Straight Win

News: Braden Holtby picked up his third consecutive win Tuesday, limiting the Lightning to three goals on 36 shots to come away with a 5-3 decision.
Analysis: The streaky goalie's back on one of his hot streaks, and Washington needed him to be at his best against the mighty Lightning offense. The victory wrapped up a three-game road trip, and now the Caps will return home to face Columbus on Thursday before a rematch with Tampa on Saturday.

Caps To Go With Holtby On Tuesday

News: Braden Holtby will be in the crease Tuesday against the Lightning, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The Capitals' upcoming schedule over the next two weeks doesn't feature any back-to-back slates, so expect coach Barry Trotz to lean heavily on his No. 1 goaltender. Braden Holtby has rewarded the Capitals thus far with back-to-back strong efforts entering Tuesday's contest, as he limited both the Hurricanes and Devils to one goal in victories last week.

Holtby Carries Caps To Win

News: Braden Holtby delivered a 33-save, 4-1 win over the Devils on Saturday night.
Analysis: The win was his second straight, but just his third in seven outings. His mates think they're gaining some momentum, though, and who are we to argue, particularly if they continue to play the kind of disciplined and structured game we saw Saturday. It sure bodes well for Braden Holtby's fantasy future.

Caps' Holtby Draws Saturday Start

News: Braden Holtby will be between the pipes for Saturday's showdown with the Devils, Tom Gulitti of The Record reports.
Analysis: Braden Holtby will take the ice in search of his second consecutive victory. The 25-year-old netminder owns a 2.42 GAA and .912 save percentage so far during the 2014-15 season.

Caps Expected To Start Holtby Again Saturday

News: Braden Holtby is expected to start in goal Saturday versus the Devils, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: With the Capitals set to play the next two weeks without a pair of back-to-back games, it seems probable that Braden Holtby will be the man in the net every night for the next several contests. He'll draw his third straight turn Saturday against a Devils squad whom he's already beaten and lost to this season.

Caps' Holtby Stops 29 In Win

News: Braden Holtby limited the 'Canes to a goal on 30 shots in Thursday's 2-1 victory.
Analysis: He narrowly outdueled Anton Khudobin, with Eric Fehr's late-third-period goal snapping a 1-1 tie and sending Braden Holtby and the Caps home happy. This represents a quality bounce-back for the 25-year-old goalie, who'd taken losses in his prior two appearances.

Caps To Start Holtby On Thursday

News: Braden Holtby will be between the pipes Thursday against the Hurricanes.
Analysis: Braden Holtby has regressed over his last handful of outings, allowing three or more tallies in three of his last four turns. The Hurricanes should give Holtby a fair chance at reestablish some momentum, as they rank just 24th in the league with 2.33 goals per game.

Holtby, Caps Can't Slow Canucks

News: Braden Holtby allowed four goals on 32 shots in Tuesday's loss to Vancouver.
Analysis: Braden Holtby was building up some real momentum for a while there, posting save marks of .914 or better in eight straight games, but now he's taken a step back with a pair of clunky outings in a row. The Caps may roll out Justin Peters in Carolina on Thursday to give Holtby a little breather.

Caps' Holtby Starting Tuesday

News: Braden Holtby will start in net Tuesday against the Canucks, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Braden Holtby has been pretty average this system, but was yanked Saturday after allowing three goals on 12 shots to the Maple Leafs. He'll get a chance to redeem himself Tuesday against a Canucks team that has experienced an offensive resurgence this season.

Caps' Holtby Shuts Down High-Flying Islanders

News: Braden Holtby made 26 saves on 28 shots in Friday's win over the Islanders.
Analysis: Just another day at the office for the 25-year-old, who has been on top of his game lately. Braden Holtby is 5-2-1 in his last eight games, allowing only 13 goals in that span. He is on track to reach 30 wins for the first time in his career. With a respectable .916 save percentage and 2.27 GAA, Holtby is a must-start every night he gets the call.

Caps' Holtby To Start Friday

News: Braden Holtby led the Capitals on to the ice for pregame warmups and will make the start in goal Friday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Braden Holtby was on the losing end of the matchup with the Islanders on Wednesday, stopping 32 shots but surrendering the winning goal in overtime. He should have a better chance at coming away with the victory Friday, as the Isles will start their backup goalie (Chad Johnson) and will be missing a key defenseman in Johnny Boychuk.

Caps' Holtby Allows 3 In OT Loss

News: Braden Holtby made 32 saves in Wednesday's 3-2 overtime loss to the Capitals.
Analysis: The Caps played well against the league's hottest team, but just couldn't provide any offense outside of Alex Ovechkin. Braden Holtby will probably sit out a game this weekend when the Caps play the Isles and Maple Leafs on back-to-back nights.

Caps Start Holtby Wednesday

News: Braden Holtby will start in net Wednesday against the Islanders.
Analysis: Braden Holtby made 24 saves on 26 shots Saturday against the Sabres, but took a 2-1 loss in the game. He will enter Wednesday's tilt with a 7-5-2 record along with a 2.25 GAA and .915 save percentage.

Caps' Holtby Stops 24 In Loss

News: Braden Holtby made 24 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Sabres on Saturday night.
Analysis: He's looking good of late, and despite his 7-5-2 record, his overall game has been better than last year. Barry Trotz has had a good influence on that; fantasy owners would love to see some more wins, though. They should come. Use him.

Caps' Holtby Receives Nod Saturday

News: Braden Holtby will be in the crease Saturday against the Sabres.
Analysis: It's the third consecutive start for Braden Holtby, who has been impressive his last two times out en route to victories over the Coyotes and Avalanche. His solid numbers for the season (7-4-2, 2.26 GAA, .914 save percentage) place him safely in the middle class of fantasy goalies.

Caps' Holtby Starting To Rack Up Wins

News: Braden Holtby picked up his fourth win in five starts Thursday, limiting the Avs to two goals on 29 shots.
Analysis: He's been spectacular over these last five games, having given up just eight goals in that span. Braden Holtby has all the skills to be a top-tier NHL netminder, but has struggled with inconsistency, especially early in seasons. But at just 25 years old, we could be witnessing maturation in progress, and it doesn't hurt that Washington's defense has been strengthened this year by offseason acquisitions Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen.
