Bet Tonight’s Flyers vs. Capitals Game

Braden Holtby will take his place between the pipes tonight for the Capitals after tying Martin Brodeur for most wins in a single season with his 48th victory last Saturday. He turned away 19 of 20 shots in the win and finished 48-9-7 with a 2.20 GAA and .917 save percentage through 66 games in the regular season.

Philadelphia will counter in goal with Steve Mason, who was a healthy scratch for Sunday’s season finale against the Islanders. He finished the season with a 23-19-10 record and a 2.51 GAA and a .918 save percentage. Most importantly, Mason led the Flyers to a playoff spot, even though it could be a short-lived appearance for Philly.
