You would think that the defending Stanley Cup champions wouldn't allow a third-string, rookie goalie on a team that has a history of collapsing in the playoffs shut them down, but Caps goalie Braden Holtby did exactly that--neutralizing Boston's offense all series. And when the B's couldn't get the puck in the net, they tried to get in Holtby's head, like when Rich Peverley went to slash him in the 2nd period of last night's game 7. But that failed too as Holtby stared down Peverley like a boss, not moving an inch. How? Well, just like another young up and comer, the force is strong with this one.
