18 - Number of consecutive appearances for Braden Holtby in which he has had a save percentage that was either above .930 or below .894, dating back to December 6 (seven “feasts,” 11 “famines).

Last night’s “feast” performance (32 saves on 34 shots faced for a tidy .941 save percentage) came on the heels of Saturday night’s “famine” against Philly and continued a curious recent pattern of his recent starts - his last six starts have seen Holtby post save percentages of .818, .939, .792, .935, .720 and .941. So... buckle up for his next time out?
