Holtby extended his personal point streak to 22 consecutive decisions with a 4-1 victory against the Vancouver Canucks at Verizon Center on Thursday. He is now one game short of tying the franchise record set by Jose Theodore, who went 20-0-3 from Jan. 13 to April 9, 2010.
Holtby started his point streak on Nov. 12 and has gone 20-0-2. Holtby won his 129th game with the Capitals on Thursday to pass Don Beaupre for second place on the franchise win list. Olie Kolzig holds the franchise mark with 301 wins.
Holtby can match the streak by Theodore this weekend as the Capitals travel to face the Buffalo Sabres on Saturday (7 p.m. ET; CSN-DC +, MSG-B, BELL TV) and host the New York Rangers on Sunday (5 p.m. ET; NHLN, TVA Sports, MSG, CSN-DC). It is unclear if Holtby will start Saturday or Sunday.
