A look at just another piece of Braden Holtby’s impressive season

NHL: Washington Capitals at Minnesota Wild Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

21 - Number of consecutive games against Eastern Conference teams in which Braden Holtby has helped earn at least a point in the standings. Holtby has a 19-0-2 record against the East over that span (which syncs up with the start of Calendar Year 2017), while posting a .938 save percentage, a goals against average of 1.69 and four shutouts.

Of course, that’s not all that surprising considering how good he’s been overall since the new year (and really all season), with a record of 26-4-2 over that span and just 71 goals given up in his 34 starts.
