It’s Time for Braden Holtby to be a Hero

Video by Roxanne Wilson

Braden Holtby has been a demigod in this series, a rookie goalie going toe-to-toe with a reigning Conn Smythe winner for the first time in NHL history and handling the pressure more brilliantly than any of us could have guessed. Holtby has a .935 SV% and a 2.18 GAA for the series so far, has stopped 202 of the 216 shots directed his way, and tonight, he has an opportunity to etch his name on Caps history.

    The five seconds beginning at 0:45 are very painful to watch.  Wideman.  Sigh.

    It’s time for the REST of the boys to keep Holtby from HAVING to be a hero.  I loved the video though, Holtby kicks ass.

    For the record though, I guessed it.

     Also, I’m still using “The Creation of Holtby”  by Michelangelo as my facebook cover photo.

    he’s standing his ground decently well so far. looked a little shaky in the 2nd.  Marchand is getting away with some major goaltending interference.  I fucking hate that guy. 

    Also, nice stare down from Holtby after a little fake whack
