The Noon Number: Braden's Going Streaking

Looking at Braden Holtby's workload - and success - of late.

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

10 - Number of consecutive starts for Braden Holtby, one short of his career high set in the 2012-13 season. Over that 10-game span, Holtby has gone 7-1-2, posting a shutout, a 1.97 goals-against average and a save percentage of .933; that includes all nine games of the Caps' current point streak (7-0-2, 1.75 GAA, .940 s%).

It's all part of what continues to be a return to form for Holtby, after an extremely rough start to the season. Over his first nine games he was 3-3-2, with a 2.67 GAA and a save percentage of .891 (with a sub-.860 save percentage in five of those nine starts). Since November 7, however, he's lost just four times in regulation (19 GP) and has turned aside 93% of the shots he's faced, bringing his total save percentage up to .920 - good for 13th in the NHL.

That'll do.
