Braden Holtby Comes Up Short in Consecutive Vezina Trophy Bid


That facial expression is the face that Caps fans everywhere made after another rough night. After losing Nate Schmidt, Braden Holtby came up short in a chance to win his second consecutive Vezina Trophy. Instead, it was Sergei Bobrovsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets that took home the Vezina. 

Bobrovsky made a huge impact on the Columbus Blue Jackets remarkable regular season run. He was third in the league in wins with 41 and posted a 41-17-5 record through 63 games with a .931 save percentage, a 2.06 goals-agaisnt average, and seven shutouts.
