Capitals Ups and Downs: Week 7

The latest edition of our weekly look at individual Washington Capitals ups and downs. Your weekly look at individual Washington Capitals' ups and downs: Goalies Trend Notes Braden Holtby After an up and (mostly) down start to the season, Holtby's on a nice little roll, posting a 4-2-0/1.67/.942 line over his last six starts, including 2-1-0/1.65/.937 over this past week.

Justin Peters Well, that's one way to make sure Peters doesn't allow any...

Over past five games, Braden Holtby among NHL’s best goaltenders

DENVER – Little had changed over his past five games, Braden Holtby insisted, and yet the statistics tell a different story.

The latest edition of our weekly look at individual Washington Capitals ups and downs. Your weekly look at individual Washington Capitals' ups and downs: Goalies Trend Notes Braden Holtby Faced 54 shots in his two appearances and turned aside all but three of them, none of which were particularly good goals and one that was entirely on him.

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby working his way through bad breaks

They shed their gloves and picked up medicine balls, back to conditioning exercises for what Washington Capitals goaltending coach Mitch Korn deemed, “Work Day.” Braden Holtby and Justin Peters shuffled from side to side with the added weight, dropping down and standing up on Korn’s whistle, or pounding stick, or barking voice. They were gassed by the end, bent over and slugging water. Then their teammates arrived on the ice and practice began. Read full article >>

The Noon Number: Non-Stop Service

A look at the Caps' struggling netminders .897 - The Capitals' five-on-five save percentage on the season, third-worst in the NHL (Arizona, Carolina). Justin Peters and Braden Holtby rank 36th and 37th (out of 40), respectively, in the League in five-on-five save percentage (minimum 180 minutes), and have combined to save just 85.8 percent of the shots they've faced over the last six games, the lowest mark in the League over that span. The Caps need better goaltending than they've gotten lately. Full stop (someone had to make one).
