Hardly tested by Rangers in Game 1, Braden Holtby still struggles
He gave up three goals on 14 shots in loss
Question of the Day
“Just have to keep your mind in it. Find ways remind yourself of certain things you’re going to do,” he said. “The biggest thing is to not get upset with the fact that, [don’t] start thinking that if they come down here and score that it’s going to be the end of the world. You’ve just got to play every shot the same. It’s hard to do; it’s easy to say, but that’s what you have to do.”
But the Caps have seen Holtby struggle and redeem himself before. See his return to the NHL a month after allowing five goals to the San Jose Sharks, and then Game 7 of the Bruins series after giving up four in Game 6 with the chance to eliminate Boston.
“He’s pretty tough on himself. He’s going to come back, he’s going to prepare like he always does. And he’s going to want to be better,” Brouwer said. “He’s going to expect more out of himself. We expect him to be solid back there. It’s a tough building to play in front of. He’s going to come bounce back. We know it.”
