Caps' Holtby To Start Sunday Against Rangers

News: Braden Holtby will start between the pipes for Washington against the Rangers on Sunday, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Braden Holtby was pulled early in Saturday's 4-3 loss to Nashville after allowing three goals in the first period, presumably so he would be fresh for Sunday's crucial showdown with the Rangers. Although the matchup is difficult, Holtby has been a strong performer this year and must be trusted to have a bounce-back game as the Capitals try to hold on to a playoff berth amid a late-season slide.

Caps' Holtby Pulled In First Period Saturday

News: Braden Holtby surrendered three goals on thirteen shots, and was pulled late in the first period of Washington's 4-3 loss to the Predators on Saturday.
Analysis: It was a poor outing for Braden Holtby, who had won four of his last five starts heading into Saturday's match against the Predators, a powerhouse in the Western Conference. The decision to pull him early in the game likely means he will be called upon to start Sunday's crucial showdown with the Metropolitan Division leading Rangers, but check before game time to confirm the start. Despite the poor performance, Holtby owns a sterling 36-19-9 record, with a 2.18 GAA and .925 save percentage, on the season.

Caps' Holtby To Start Saturday

News: Braden Holtby will be in the crease for Saturday's matinee tilt with the Predators, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Coach Barry Trotz hinted Friday that Braden Holtby would continue to man the net for the Capitals on an every-game basis until the Capitals clinched a playoff berth. Despite leading all goalies in starts this season, Holtby hasn't folded yet, compiling a 36-19-9 record, 2.18 GAA, .925 save percentage, and eight shutouts on the year. He should be kept active against just about any team right now, including Western Conference powers like the Predators.

Holtby, Caps Tame Wild

News: Braden Holtby stopped 28 of 30 shots to help the Capitals hand Devan Dubnyk and the Wild a rare defeat Thursday.
Analysis: Dubnyk's been one of the stories of the year since coming to Minnesota, while Braden Holtby has quietly toiled away in Washington all season long, putting together some of the best goalie numbers around. He's now won three straight games, pushing him to 35 victories on the season, and there's no reason to think he'll slow down in the final weeks.

Caps' Holtby Gets Nod Thursday

News: Braden Holtby will be between the pipes Thursday against the Wild.
Analysis: Though he's given up three-plus goals in three of his last four outings, Braden Holtby's March numbers remain strong, as he's posted a 5-3-0 record, 2.11 GAA, and .930 save percentage in his eight starts this month. Coming away with the win on the road against the Wild and their exceptional goalie, Devan Dubnyk, may prove difficult, but with Holtby in the net, the Capitals almost always have a fighting chance.

Caps' Holtby Stops 30 In Win

News: Braden Holtby turned aside 30 of 33 shots in Monday's 4-3 win over the Sabres.
Analysis: Braden Holtby was more heavily tested than expected against the low-scoring Buffalo offense, but the result was still his second consecutive win. The 25-year-old had picked up three regulation losses in his four starts before this latest stretch, but he appears to be back on track after a slight bump in the road. At 34-18-9 with strong ratios (2.19 GAA, .924 save percentage), keep him rolling.

The 25-year-old is now 33-18-9 on the season with a .925 save percentage and 2.17 GAA. The Capitals are now in the first wildcard position in the East and Holby is a big reason why.

Caps' Holtby To Start Friday

News: Braden Holtby will be in the crease for Friday's game against the Stars.
Analysis: Braden Holtby hit some turbulence his last time out Wednesday against the Rangers, conceding three goals on 31 shots. The Stars present plenty of firepower on offense with the likes of Tyler Seguin, Jamie Benn, and Jason Spezza, but Holtby has probably earned the right for a spot in any fantasy lineup whenever he's scheduled to play. The netminder has rolled to a 32-17-9 record, 2.16 GAA, and a .925 save percentage over 59 games, cementing his status as a top-10 goalie.

Caps' Holtby In The Crease Wednesday

News: Braden Holtby will be between the pipes for Wednesday's game against the Rangers.
Analysis: The Capitals haven't played since Saturday's easy 6-1 win over the Sabres, so it was an easy call for coach Barry Trotz to stick with Braden Holtby, who has been magnificent despite shouldering one of the league's larger workloads this season. He's won three of his last four games and should be a safe play against a Rangers squad that, while dangerous offensively, is playing its second game in as many nights.

Analysis: He allowed the Buffalo goal at the 2:35 mark of the first and it gave the New Yorkers a breath of hope -- they don't lead games very often. But he locked things up after that and delivered a solid performance. His career year just continues to roll. Use him well.
