0 - Number of losses for Braden Holtby, in regulation or in overtime/shootout, in games after which he recorded a loss. Holtby has been tabbed with 10 losses so far this year, and he's a pristine 10-0-0 in his next start, with a 1.74 goals-against average and a .934 save percentage.

He's equally adept at putting the brakes on losing streaks after Philipp Grubauer gets a loss; his record overall is 13-0-1, a 1.89 GAA and a save percentage of .932.

Holtby's ability to bounce back from losses - or to help his team rebound from a loss - is a huge reason why the Caps remain the only team in the NHL that has yet to drop two straight games in regulation.
