Goaltender Braden Holtby thought the Washington Capitals‘ scrimmage on Friday was “a little bit better” than the previous two. The 30-year-old guided the prospects to a 2-1 victory over the veterans. The team will travel to Toronto, the Eastern Conference hub city, for the final week of training camp before facing the Carolina Hurricanes in an exhibition game on Wednesday (4 PM ET, NBC Sports Washington locally, NBCSN nationally).

Holtby thinks that his team is getting better each day and will be in good shape if they keep going on that trajectory.

He said that he feels “pretty comfortable right now,” and thought the Capitals’ prospects “had a good game.” Holtby thought it was “exciting” to see them play, and their performances got him excited for the future of the organization.

Holtby said the team’s current mindset is to “keep working” and prepare to go up to Toronto on Sunday. The team’s final training camp day in the Washington area will be on Saturday.

He played the entire scrimmage as goaltenders Vitek Vanecek and Pheonix Copley split the net during the scrimmage for the veteran squad.
