Braden Holtby, G, Washington Capitals: Holtby had himself a solid night in goal as well, coming up with 28 saves in the Caps’ 4-1 win over the Bruins at Verizon Center.
John Carlson scored and had an assist, while Karl Alzner, Brooks Laich and Alex Ovechkin each had a goal as well.
The win brings the Capitals to 9-3-0 so far. They haven’t lost two in a row yet this year. As for the Bruins, they’re 6-5-1, losing for the first time in six road games.
Brandon Dubinsky, C, Columbus Blue Jackets: Things looked pretty bleak for the Blue Jackets last night after their second period against the Kings at Staples Center. Columbus didn’t record a shot on goal in the period, the first time in franchise history that’s happened.
The team rebounded to grind out a 3-2 victory, however, with Gregory Campbell tallying the game-winner. Dubinsky posted a goal and an assist, while Sergei Bobrovsky put up 31 saves.
Joonas Donskoi, RW, San Jose Sharks: Donskoi scored in the first period last night against the Panthers at SAP Center, as did Brent Burns. Those two early tallies would help the Sharks to a 5-2 win and match the team’s season-high in goals.
San Jose’s Alex Stalock put up 31 saves and recorded his first win since April 1. The Sharks are now 7-6-0 on the year. Florida falls to 5-5-3.
