Caps Give Braden Holtby Group Hug, Chant ‘Holt-by’ In Locker Room After He Ties Single Season Wins Record
Last night, Braden Holtby tied Martin Brodeur’s all-time single season wins record. At times, 48 wins seemed like it’d be an easy mark to reach for the Holtbeast, but after the Caps lost three of their last four games, the Caps goaltender had to win his final scheduled start just to tie.
That drama and doubt fueled the Caps’ to one of their most convincing wins of the season, a 5-1 beatdown of the Blues, in St. Louis. It also meant one big celebration with their hairy goaltender.
At the end of the game, the Caps mobbed Holtby in the crease and gave him a giant group hug.
