The Capitals escaped with a 1-0 win over the Edmonton Oilers thanks to Dmitry Orlov's booming shot.
After the Caps 1-0 victory, Braden Holtby talked to Al Koken about his shutout and his little pregame mishap with Justin Williams.
Braden Holtby stopped 33 shots but it was his post-game comment that defined him.
Unlike their last meeting, it only took the Capitals one goal to get the best of the Oilers on Monday night, and that goal came courtesy of Dmitry Orlov.
It was a routine warm-up session for the Capitals, until Justin Williams tripped, and took Braden Holtby down with him.
