13 - 4 - 3 with .926 and 2.08 GAA

When we were good in front of him, he won a lot (and looked better doing it than Varlamov or Nuevy, in my opinion).
And some people have actually watched Holtby play in both the AHL and NHL and are not just looking at records. Holtby has played well and poorly at the NHL level, the Caps appear to be going into the playoffs starting their 3rd goalie. It is what it is, hopefully, he plays well and the team plays well in front of him. Will I watch the games, yes, do I think this is a team that is going to make a long playoff run, not at the moment, but I hope I'm wrong.
