NHL Playoffs 2012, Bruins Vs. Capitals Game 5: Game Time, TV Coverage And More

22-year old goalkeeper Braden Holtby has the Capitals tied with the defending Stanley Cup Champions - can the Bruins figure out how to beat him in Game 5?


Capitals goalie Braden Holtby has announced his presence to the NHL over the course of his first four playoff starts. The 22-year old only played in seven games this year, but has held the defending Stanley Cup Champions to 1.60 goals per game, including a masterpiece 2-1 double-OT win in Game 2 and a 44-save 1-0 victory in Game 4 which have allowed the Caps to tie the series at 2-2. The Bruins will try to prove Holtby's performance a fluke in a Saturday afternoon return to their home ice at the TD Bank Garden.
