The Noon Number: One and Done

A look at getting by with minimal support

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

4 - Number of 1-0 shutouts Braden Holtby has posted in his career, with the fourth coming last night. Here's a look at the quartet of whitewashings, all of which have come at Verizon Center:

Date Opponent Saves
May 4, 2013* NYR 24
January 14, 2015 PHI 21
May 4, 2015* NYR 30
November 23, 2015 EDM 33

* Playoffs

So maybe you don't want to face Holtby on Star Wars Day ("May the fourth be with you" and all of that...).

Holtby's four 1-0 wins are impressive (and apparently the only shutouts he really values), but he's not quite half-way to the franchise lead, which, as nearly all goaltending marks are, is held by Olie Kolzig who won nine such games, including a pair of back-to-back victories back in January of 2002.

But while Kolzig and Holtby may be out in front in 1-0 win totals, the best single 1-0 performance among the 28 in club history probably belongs to Brent Johnson, who stopped 46 shots in a regulation win on the road in Ottawa back on April 1, 2006. No foolin'.
