Third-Period Goals Sink Caps' Holtby

News: Braden Holtby stopped 28 shots, but gave up two third-period goals to Minnesota's Jason Pominville and was stuck with a 2-1 loss Thursday.
Analysis: Braden Holtby carried a 1-0 lead well into the third, but ended up giving up the two tallies to Pominville just over five minutes apart. Still, despite taking his fourth loss in six starts, Holtby delivered strong rate stats, as he has so often this season.

Holtby Good Enough For Caps To Win Tuesday

News: Braden Holtby stopped 27 of 30 shots Tuesday in a 5-3 victory over Columbus.
Analysis: Not his most impressive outing, but a win's a win, and Braden Holtby continues to be a reliable netminding presence for fantasy owners and the Capitals alike. A tougher matchup is on the docket, though, as the Caps host Minnesota on Thursday.

Caps' Holtby Perfect In Win

News: Braden Holtby stopped all 32 shots he faced in Sunday's 4-0 win over the Maple Leafs.
Analysis: It's Braden Holtby's seventh shutout of the season -- second most in the NHL behind only Marc-Andre Fleury's eight. The win also snaps a three game losing streak and gives the 25-year-old his first 30-win season in his career. Coupled with an impressive 2.16 GAA and .925 save percentage, Holtby should be rolled every game.

Caps' Holtby Suffers Third Straight Loss

News: Braden Holtby suffered his third straight loss Friday, giving up two goals on 37 shots against Carolina.
Analysis: It wasn't Braden Holtby's fault, as he played remarkable in the team's shutout loss to the Hurricanes. The 25-year-old still owns a 29-15-9 record on the season with a .924 save percentage and 2.20 GAA. While he's picked up a few losses of late, his play Friday is example of why this losing streak won't last for much longer. He's so good that he needs to be an automatic roll every game.

Capitals' Holtby Starting Friday

News: Braden Holtby will start Friday's game against Carolina, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Braden Holtby has been a workhorse this season, and he'll get the starting nod against his backup's former team. The Caps will likely give Holtby a rest within the next few games, as the team has a busy stretch coming over the next week-and-a-half.

Caps' Holtby Allows Four In Loss

News: Braden Holtby made 22 saves on 26 shots in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Penguins.
Analysis: Braden Holtby was leaky early, but the Caps were able to hang around before pulling within one goal with over three minutes left in the third period. Washington couldn't pull it out in the end, so Holtby's record now sits at 29-14-9 through 53 games on the season.

Braden Holtby

Caps' Holtby To Start Wednesday vs. Pittsburgh

News: Braden Holtby will get the start for Wednesday's game against the Penguins.
Analysis: The starting nod comes as no surprise, as Braden Holtby has been outstanding against the Penguins this season, only allowing one goal in three starts against the much-hated division rival. With a 2.16 GAA and .924 save percentage on the year (and even better numbers at home), Holtby must be started in all formats.

Braden Holtby

Caps' Holtby Surrenders Three In Loss

News: Braden Holtby allowed three goals on 28 shots in Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: The loss snaps a three gaming winning streak for Braden Holtby -- in which he allowed just four goals total -- but it's hard to fault him too much for the loss as it came on the back end of a back-to-back with two of the goals scored on the power play. Holtby has still been very sharp as of late, and will likely start almost every contest for the Caps the rest of the way.

Caps' Holtby Starting Sunday

News: Braden Holtby will start in goal for the Capitals Sunday against the Flyers, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: This will be Braden Holtby's fourth straight start and he will likely see many more consecutive starts as Washington makes its divisional push. He's been strong lately, allowing just four goals in his last three games.

Braden Holtby, G, WAS Third Straight Win For Caps' Holtby

Braden Holtby

Third Straight Win For Caps' Holtby

News: Braden Holtby stopped 30 of 32 pucks sent his way in Saturday's 3-2 matinee shootout victory over the Islanders.
Analysis: This was a bit of a statement-win (New York was without star winger Kyle Okposo and played their backup Chad Johnson in net) for the Capitals, who are now within four points of the Islanders for the Metropolitan Division lead. Braden Holtby has been dynamite this season, posting a 29-12-9 record to date in addition to a 2.14 GAA and .925 save percentage -- both of which are better than his career marks of 2.44 and .921. The Caps aren't exactly in jeopardy of losing their playoff spot, but with seeding and home ice on the line, coach Barry Trotz is all but certain to keep leaning on Holtby in the final 22 games of the season, which is a good thing for owners who have cashed in with the 25-year-old this year.

Braden Holtby

Caps' Holtby To Start On Saturday

News: Braden Holtby will get the start against the New York Islanders on Saturday, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: Holbty has been sharp of late for the Capitals, and will look to redeem himself from the last outing against the division-leading Islanders in which he allowed four goals in a 5-4 OT loss. Braden Holtby enters the game with a 2.15GAA and .925 save percentage, and those numbers are even better on home ice, so even though it's a tough matchup, start him with confidence.

Braden Holtby

Caps' Holtby Allows One Goal In Win

News: Braden Holtby delivered his second straight one-goal effort Thursday against Winnipeg, stopping 19 of 20 in a 5-1 victory.
Analysis: Aside from a two-game dip in which he allowed a total of seven goals, Braden Holtby has been simply masterful of late. Over his last nine starts, he's allowed one or zero goals six times.

Caps Roll With Holtby

News: Braden Holtby is slated to start Thursday's game against the Jets.
Analysis: No surprise there, as Braden Holtby will see the bulk of the Caps' starts moving forward as long as he's healthy. The team does play back-to-back games Saturday (against the Islanders) and Sunday (against the Flyers), so it's possible that Holtby could give way to Justin Peters in one of those contests.

Holtby's 32 Saves Lead Caps By Penguins

News: Braden Holtby stopped 32 of 33 shots Tuesday in a 3-1 win over the Penguins.
Analysis: Marc-Andre Fleury and the Pens hung right in there with Braden Holtby and the Caps for 55-plus minutes, but Joel Ward's power-play goal untied things and sent Holtby to his fourth win in the last six starts. He'd given up seven goals over his prior two starts, so it's nice to see Holtby get back on track.

Caps' Holtby To Face Pittsburgh On Tuesday

News: Braden Holtby will get the start for the Capitals when they visit the Pittsburgh Penguins on Tuesday, Monumental Network reports.
Analysis: No surprise as Braden Holtby has been a workhorse for the Capitals this season. In addition to sporting an outstanding 26-12-9 record with a 2.20 GAA and .932 save percentage, the Saskatchewan native has two shutout victories against the Penguins this season, including one in Consol Energy Center back in December. While lightning may not strike three times in a row, he needs to be active.

Caps' Holtby Falls To Surging Kings

News: Braden Holtby gave up 27 goals on 30 shots in Saturday's loss to the Kings.
Analysis: It was a decent outing for Braden Holtby, who fell victim to a surging Kings team that has now won four straight games. Holtby still owns a 26-12-9 record on the season with a .923 save percentage and 2.20 GAA. He's been one of the best fantasy netminders this season and needs to be in your lineup every game.

Caps' Holtby Will Start Saturday

News: Braden Holtby will get the start in net Saturday against the Kings.
Analysis: Saturday will mark Braden Holtby's third consecutive start for the Caps. He'll take on a Kings team that averages 2.74 goals per game, good for 16th in the NHL. Holtby's been excellent all season, going 26-11-9 with a 2.18 GAA and .924 save percentage through 47 games.

Caps' Holtby Grabs 26th Win

News: Braden Holtby stopped 26 of 30 shots sent his way Wednesday, grabbing a 5-4 OT win over the Sharks.
Analysis: Braden Holtby wasn't great in this one, but ended up on the winning side of things courtesy of Joel Ward's game winner 2:42 into the extra frame. He's won four of his last six starts and owns a tidy .924 save percentage and 2.18 GAA this season (both of which are better than his career averages), so owners should continue to ride the 25-year-old down the stretch.

Caps Stick With Holtby On Wednesday

News: Braden Holtby is slated to start Wednesday's game against the Sharks.
Analysis: Braden Holtby, who will take aim at a San Jose squad that has lost two straight, dropped his last start (to the Flyers on Sunday), but overall, he has allowed just four goals over his last five games.

Caps And Holtby Fall Against Flyers

News: Braden Holtby stopped 22 of 24 shots in Sunday's 3-1 loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: It's a rare loss for Braden Holtby, who's been fantastic of late as he's surrendered just four goals in his last five starts. He still turned in a solid effort despite the loss, and with a 2.14 GAA and .925 save percentage, the 25-year-old makes for one of the best options in net.

Caps' Holtby Takes Net Sunday

News: Braden Holtby will start Sunday against the Flyers, the team announced
Analysis: Braden Holtby got some rare rest during last Friday's game, as AHL call-up Philipp Grubauer took over and defeated the Ducks. Washington then almost immediately demoted Grubauer back to Hershey, so Holtby's likely in for another string of continuous starts. He's been a workhorse for the Capitals this season, including setting a new franchise record for consecutive appearances.
