Braden Holtby Is NHL’s Third Star of the Week

Posted November 13, 2017

“Third star, eh? WOOOOO!” Holtby didn’t say. (Caps Outsider)

After getting his 200th career win this week, Caps goalie Braden Holtby didn’t care.

Here’s another thing he won’t care about: He got the NHL’s third star of the week this week, after going 3-0-0 with 1.27 GAA and a .952 save percentage. With his 200th career win, he became the second-fastest goaltender in NHL history to do so, behind Ken Dryden.

The other two stars, which Caps fans don’t care about:

  1. Jason Zucker
  2. Nikita Kucherov

But that’s probably because they didn’t have to play Holtby and the Caps.

Here’s Holtby being awesome against Edmonton:
