Post-game an analysis of the Capitals’ 2-1 overtime win over the Detroit Red Wings Wednesday night at Joe Louis Arena in Detroit:
In the NHL, sometimes you need your goalie to step up with big saves in big moments. Braden Holtby did just that for the Caps on Wednesday in Detroit.
The Capitals (11-4-0, 22 points) return home tonight to face the Calgary Flames (5-11-1, 11 points) at Verizon Center (6:30 p.m. pregame, CSN).
If he could do it over and over again, Braden Holtby says he would stop Andreas Athanasiou’s bad-angle, game-winning shot Tuesday night 999 straight times.
