Braden Holtby makes filthy glove save on Ryan Strome, later leaves game after being struck in mask by high stick
Former Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby was named the starter for the Dallas Stars in their season opener against the New York Rangers on Thursday. It didn’t take long for the Holtbeast to make his impact felt during the game with some stone-cold robbery.
Towards the middle of the second frame, the Stars committed a bad turnover in the defensive zone, giving up a chance right in front of the net.
Holtby, like he did for the Caps in Game Two of the Stanley Cup Final, bailed the Stars out with a mind-blowing save on Ryan Strome.
