NEW YORK | Braden Holtby was the reason the Washington Capitals hung around against the New York Rangers on Sunday night. Even in a loss, it was obvious to those involved that the 23-year-old goaltender was the star.

Here’s a compilation of some of the best quotes about Holtby:

TROY BROUWER

“It’s as well as I’ve seen him play. He gave us lots of opportunities to win it, unfortunately we couldn’t help him out and I thought we had some good looks 5-on-5, even on the power play as well we had a lot of good looks. We needed one to go [in].”

KARL ALZNER

“He was calm, you could tell the way he was playing the puck was amazing, didn’t rush anything. That’s exactly the way we need him to play every night it’s always going to give us a good chance to win.”

ERIC FEHR

“Holtsy played a great game.That’s definitely the best I’ve seen him this year. It could’ve been pretty lopsided for a while there and he kept us in it.”

TOM POTI

“He played great. Two backdoor plays, nothing you can do on either one of them. He played great. He deserved to win.”

NICKLAS BACKSTROM

“Really good. I think he was outstanding tonight.”

RANGERS CENTER DEREK STEPAN

He plays well against us that’s for sure. Throughout the game we kept trying to get bodies in front of him, and he did a good job of fighting through that.

RANGERS WINGER RICK NASH

“We were getting lots of opportunities. He’s a good goalie. He comes out and challenges you pretty good. Really, during the whole game, he was pretty effective.”
