For those of you who missed the game Tuesday night (either by choice or because of NHL.TV’s constant crashing), consider yourself lucky. The league’s best team had their biggest stinker of the year. After falling behind 4-0, the Verizon Center crowd — and this is insane to me — booed the Caps as they headed into the locker room for the second intermission.
But if there was one man who brought his A-game, it was Braden Holtby. Despite being given the night off by Barry Trotz, the Holtbeast made, in my opinion, the biggest plays of the night.
