A look at the Capitals’ duo of deniers 2 - Caps goalies who have posted a five-on-five save percentage of .940* or better so far this season: Philipp Grubauer (.945 in 633 minutes) and Braden Holtby (.940* in 1978).

Behind Enemy Lines: Washington Capitals still the class of the NHL

Hurricanes travel to D.C. to take on the red-hot Capitals Well, that escalated quickly. After a first quarter of the season which could be described as middling for last season’s Metropolitan Division champions, the Washington Capitals have returned to last season’s form with absolute vengeance, compiling a 16-2-1 record in their last 19 games. That stretch also includes a 6-1 waxing of the Hurricanes on January 23rd. During this torrid stretch, starting netminder Braden Holtby has been a sterling 12-0-1, with an amazing .931 save percentage and 1.77 goals against average. Sustained...

A look at the Caps’ stingy one-two punch in net 9 - Shutouts for Capitals goaltenders so far this season, tying the club’s single-season high set in 1995-96 and tied in 2014-15. Of those nine white-washings, Braden Holtby has posted six and Philipp Grubauer three, marking just the third time in team history that the team has had two netminders with at least three shutouts. Per Elias, “Al Jensen (4) and Pat Riggin (4) did it in 1983–84, Tomas Vokoun (4) and Michal Neuvirth (3) in 2011–12.” By blanking the Kings on Sunday, Grubauer helped the team set a new mark for most home...

A look at an impressive run... with one big asterisk 10 - Consecutive decisions which Braden Holtby has won, marking the longest such streak by a Capitals netminder since Jose Theodore won ten-straight from January 13 through February 7, 2010. Now, it’s worth noting that Holtby’s streak includes two games (Toronto and Pittsburgh) in which he started but was pulled while trailing, only to have the Caps come back to tie the game and hand Philipp Grubauer the decision (a win and an overtime loss, respectively). Then again, Theodore’s streak started with a relief appearance, and a...
