5 - Number of days remaining until the start of the Capitals’ 2020 postseason run. But it’s also...

...the number of wins earned by Braden Holtby over the Bruins, Flyers, and Lightning during the regular season. Holtby continued his dominance over Boston with another two wins (although they did finally get to him in a pre-Christmas rout that saw him give up four goals on 11 shots), was a clean two-for-two against Tampa and picked up one win against the Flyers.

Over the course of his career, Holtby has put up a combined record of 43-15-11 against these three squads, with a save percentage of .918 (.929 at even strength), a GAA of 2.52, and 8 shutouts.
