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).
