The Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby has even more reasons to celebrate. His fiancee gave birth to a healthy baby boy on Thursday. They named the baby Benjamin Hunter Holtby and both mother and baby are doing fine. This is Holtby’s first child.
Holtby has been amazing in goal for Washington over these last couple of months. He played an essential role in the Capitals being able to make the playoffs and now they are headed into game 7 against the New York Rangers. The strong play and consistency of Braden Holtby has given the Capitals every possible opportunity for success. They eliminated the defending Stanley Cup Champions, the Boston Bruins, in the first round of the playoffs and now they are on the verge of another possible game 7 victory.
Now that Holtby’s son has been born he will have to turn his attention to the task at hand. Beating the New York Rangers. The only thing standing in the way of the Capitals victory is Rangers goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. Tomorrow night’s game will be a battle between two remarkable goalies. May the best one win!
