Braden Holtby has really dominated the Bruins in the goal for the Caps. He comes into tonight’s meeting 12-2-0 with a 1.81 goals against average and a .944 save percentage lifetime against Boston. The Bruins have scored just 13 even-strength goals against him in 14 games. Washington (19-12-1) will be missing TJ Oshie for the fifth consecutive game because of a lower-body injury, but that hasn’t hurt the team. They had a four game winning streak, however a loss to the New York Islanders derailed that. Washington will look to get back on the horse and ride another streak starting tonight.
Last game for Boston: 3-2 overtime win at Detroit
- Brad Marchand-goal, assist
- Torey Krug-2 assists
- Noel Acciari & David Pastrnak-goal each
Boston hasn’t won a game in 10 straight regular season match ups against the Caps. A win versus Washington hasn’t happened since March 29, 2014. However the Bruins have won three straight overall and nine of their past 11 games heading into tonight’s game.
