A look at the Caps’ number one netminder when playing in his country’s weekly big game

NHL: Edmonton Oilers at Toronto Maple Leafs Tom Szczerbowski-USA TODAY Sports

1.62 - Braden Holtby’s career goals against average in 16 career Saturday night games against Canadian teams. Holtby is 9-3-4 with a .944 save percentage in those games, 7-3-4/.944/1.64 on the road, 3-1-1/.931/2.01 against tomorrow night’s opponent, the Maple Leafs, and 2-1-1/.936/2.05 in Toronto. Overall, Holtby is 41-14-7/.924/2.18 on Saturdays in his NHL career.

With Philipp Grubauer slated to get this evening’s start against the Sabres, expect Holtby to be between the pipes tomorrow night in Toronto.
