There's no score after two periods of Game 1 between the Washington Capitals and Boston Bruins, and there's one reason for that. His name is Braden Holtby. The Caps' netminder -- their third-string goalie, by the way -- has made 26 saves to stave off the Bruins' seemingly relentless attack.
Boston has seen four power plays in the game through two periods but hasn't been able to capitalize thanks to Holtby and the Washington defense, which has blocked 17 shots in front of their goaltender. The Caps haven't been able to turn the momentum around in the opposite direction after those big PK's, however, generating just two shots in the second period to add to their awful two-period total of seven.
The Bruins are known to wear teams down late. They won a Stanley Cup doing that last year, and regardless of whether or not Holtby can keep up his fine play, the Capitals are going to have to generate some offense if they want to have a chance to win Game 1.
