Braden Holtby (1-1-0, .893 save percentage, 3.32 GAA) makes his sixth start of the season as the Capitals host New York and look to sustain the momentum they established with a win over Edmonton Monday night. Vezina finalist Henrik Lundqvist, who hasn’t looked like his usual self with a 1-3-0 record, .887 save percentage and 4.21 GAA, gets the nod for the Rangers.
