The day after getting pulled halfway through a 6-4 loss to Philadelphia, Braden Holtby will get another start in goal for the Capitals, this one tonight in Boston against the Bruins.
The Caps are in a desperate fight to make the playoffs, and currently they’re on the outside looking in.
“Hopefully we play better in front of Braden,” Oates said, per the Washington Post. “He had a good game [in Boston] a few days ago. The team played pretty solid that game as well. Hopefully we can draw on that and the second half of last night and have a good game.”
