3 - Number of times Braden Holtby has been pulled in his last six starts, the same number of times he was yanked in 63 starts throughout all of 2016-17.
Holtby has started and failed to finish (less than 50 minutes played) seven games so far this season, including last night’s loss and four games since the start of February (a span of eleven games). Here’s a brief snapshot of those seven games:
Asked Trotz if the plan was to stick with Holtby as the No. 1. Trotz: "Just because he's No. 1 doesn't mean you don't go with Grubi for a bit so [Holtby] can settle his game." Said coaches will sit down and see what the "best plan for the long haul is."— Isabelle Khurshudyan (@ikhurshudyan) March 7, 2018
