A look at some elite company being kept by the Caps' netminder

Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

2 - Number of goalies in NHL history who have more 41-win seasons than Braden Holtby, with only Evgeni Nabokov (three) and Martin Brodeur (eight) ahead of him. Holtby backstopped the Caps to a 2-1 shootout victory last night for his 41st of the season, his second-straight season with at least 41 wins.

Holtby is the only active goaltender to have back-to-back 41-win seasons, and the first in Caps' history; the last goalie to accomplish that feat was Nabokov (which he actually did three straight times, from 2007 to 2010).
