It’s been a pretty good week for Holtby, who on Saturday stopped 35 shots as the Capitals blanked the Winnipeg Jets 3-0. The shutout was Holtby’s third of the season and second in his past three starts. After Matt Hendricks opened the scoring midway through the second period, Troy Brouwer and Mike Ribeiro scored 52 seconds apart in the third to put the game out of reach.
No. 2 Star: Jason Pominville, Buffalo Sabres
The population of Pominville, as play-by-play man Rick Jeanneret would say, grew by two during Buffalo’s 4-3 shootout win over the New Jersey Devils. The Sabres captain scored shorthanded to open the game, notched the tying goal in the second period and then added one in the shootout to power Buffalo to their third straight win.
