Monday night, the Washington Capitals played in their first potential elimination game of the 2018 postseason. And they delivered one of their best performances of the year.
Braden Holtby stopped 24 shots in the Capitals’ suffocating 3-0 win. The shutout was Holtby’s first of the season.
The Holtbeast was cool, calm, and collected throughout the entire night, and after I reviewed some tweets on social media, I think I know his secret.
