Caps Insider: Improved Capitals defense reflected in fewer shots against, more blocked shots

The revamped Washington Capitals defense, buttressed by four offseason signings — two players, two coaches — has offered immediate returns. Through five games, they have allowed 11 goals and the penalty kill has snuffed out 18 of 20 opposing power plays. Save three early scores over 10 minutes against San Jose, netminders Braden Holtby and Justin Peters have been strong, boosted by the teachings of positional coach Mitch Korn.

Caps Insider: ‘Top-end saves’ from Braden Holtby kept Caps alive vs. Devils

Caps Insider: Capitals vs. Devils notes: Braden Holtby back in goal and the ageless Jaromir Jagr

Some last-minute, quick-hitting notes before Washington hosts New Jersey, the second of a three-game homestand before its annual western Canada trip. Check back later for the discussion thread. Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby left the ice Thursday morning before his backup Justin Peters, a decent indication the 25-year-old will start vs. unbeaten New Jersey, looking to put aside the three-goal, 10-minute debacle against San Jose earlier this week.

Early benching a learning experience for Braden Holtby

The conversation between goalie and coach contained little substance, more implicit than anything, an ephemeral checkup to ensure everything was fine. “If I decide to use you tomorrow, you ready to go?” Barry Trotz recalled asking. “Yeah,” Holtby replied. “Okay,” Trotz said, later telling reporters, “That’s about it today.” Trotz had pulled Holtby less than […]

Capitals fight back after Braden Holtby is pulled to salvage a point against Sharks

Braden Holtby hunched over and stared down at the ice, slammed between his pipes after a third shot rippled the net. Behind the Washington Capitals goaltender, a small scrum ensued, frustration from Holtby’s teammates interrupting another early goal celebration from their visitors.

This summer, somewhere amid their blue-line spending spree, the Capitals signed free agent Justin Peters, at two years for $1.9 million, with a clear mission in mind. They had rotated four goaltenders the previous season, jamming the crease with bodies, never quite settling on a single option.

Washington Capitals goalie Braden Holtby is seeing and believing

Braden Holtby sat alone on the visitor’s bench Saturday night in Boston, stick resting across his lap, and twice checked his watch. He cracked his neck, craned up at the scoreboard, and looked at the clock: 50 minutes until the puck dropped. Security officers had stationed inside each tunnel, and the TD Garden suites had begun to fill.
