The Washington Capitals struggled to put a shorthanded New Jersey Devils team away Friday night at Capital One Arena. Thankfully, it didn’t matter because Braden Holtby was a brick wall.
The Holtbeast made 25 saves in the Capitals 3-0 win over the Devils.
The shutout was Holtby’s 35th of his career, tying him with Olie Kolzig for most in franchise history. Two nights earlier, Holtby became the second fastest goaltender in NHL history to record 250 wins.
