For days I've been hearing and reading from fans and reporters that Braden Holtby has been Henrik Lundqvist's equal in the Caps-Rangers first round series. Before game 3, many even said he was outplaying "The King." Really? Not sure what games these people have been watching. In the 1-0 Caps win in game 2, Henrik had a half dozen highlight reel saves and Holtby bragged about not breaking a sweat. Don't get me wrong, I have no animosity toward Holtby. In fact, I enjoy his approach and demeanor and think he has the potential to be a number one goalie. But he's not there yet and Henrik was just nominated for the Vezina for his 5th time in 8 seasons. Swap goalies in this series and the Caps would be going for the sweep tonight. The silliness from the Washington Post, Comcast cheerleaders (they call themselves sportscasters), and a number of loud mouth fans I sat next to on Saturday was becoming more than I could handle. Had to get this off my chest. Win or lose, there's is zero question about who is the far superior goalie in this series.
