A look at Braden Holtby's ability to stop streaks before they happen

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

5 - Number of wins earned by Braden Holtby in games following a Caps loss so far this season, including a victory last night to counteract the overtime loss over the weekend. In those five wins, Holtby has given up a stingy six goals on 132 shots faced for a sparkling .955 save percentage.

It's something that has been a trademark of Holtby's over the course of his career, but particularly going back to the beginning of last year. Since the start of the 2014-15 season, Holtby has gone 27-6-3 in games after a loss (by him or his backup), with a 1.90 GAA, a .934 save percentage and six shutouts.
