Hometown Hockey heads to Lloydminster, Saskatchewan where Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby first made the decision to step between the pipes

  • 01:17 •

Sportsnet will televise "Rogers Hometown Hockey" at 6:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, prior to the game between the Montreal Canadiens and Edmonton Oilers. There also will be features during the intermissions. The location this week is Lloydminster, on the border of Saskatchewan and Alberta, and the show will celebrate the history of hockey in the city.

Among the features airing on the show:

* Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby, who grew up on the Saskatchewan side of Lloydminster, always enjoys a home-cooked meal. His mother, Tami, will show how she prepares that meal every time Braden returns home.

* The Holtbys started a local food market and catering company, Harvest to Home, in 2010. Under new ownership, the market still uses fresh, local products from Lloydminster and instills the same values that the Holtbys did.

* Braden Holtby quickly realized growing up that he would enjoy being a goalie rather than life on the farm. A look at how his hockey career began.

* Ron Ellis remembers scoring the opening goal of the clinching game when the Toronto Maple Leafs won the Stanley Cup in 1967. He talks about the long drought the Maple Leafs have endured since.
