The Washington Capitals are going to the Stanley Cup Finals for the first time in 20 years.
On the road the Capitals were dominant. Even without Nicklas Backstrom the Capitals put on a strong and convincing performance at the Amalie Arena, outshooting and out scoring the Tampa Bay Lightning 10 goals to 4 over the first two games in the series.
With the Penguins slain and the 2nd round of the playoffs well and truly behind them, the Capitals took on and demolished the Tampa Bay lightning in the first game of the Eastern Conference Final.
In this article I want to share with you some of the best videos I have found on youtube of Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby.

When Braden Holtby became a restricted free agent in summer last year, there were mixed reactions among the fans. He had called for an arbitration hearing in order to negotiate a contract he felt he deserved. Was he worth the money he was asking?
Rituals are a part of any sport. My own experience has shown me that no fans are quite as ritualistic as fans of hockey.
Oh the weather outside is frightful,
but the fire is so delightful,
since we’ve no place to go…
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.
How about no?? Give us hockey right??
It’s 12am, 11/1/2016 and I’m primed and ready to watch my second game of the weekend. Since it’s a home game I’ve been sporting my home jersey, since you know… They haven’t lost when I’ve worn it on the day and hey, it’s a hockey thing, those who know will understand. The puck drops and play begins. Ovechkin makes a shot on goal within the first minute of play and I like everyone else around the world watching are hoping and praying it goes in. For the next goal off the stick of the Washington Capitals Captain will be the milestone goal.
