Caps goaltender Braden Holtby often plays the puck and makes long passes to an open player at the blue line, but it rarely leads to a 2-on-0 break, which happened Monday against the Predators.

With Nashville making a line change, Holtby got the puck and made a long pass to Devante Smith-Pelly, who skated in and passed to Chandler Stephenson, who had a layup past goaltender Pekka Rinne.

It was the second assist of the season for Holtby, and tenth of his career.
