Capitals

With the trade deadline nearing, general manager Brian MacLellan has some big decisions to make.
Goaltenders Braden Holtby and Carey Price were outstanding, but the Caps' struggles in overtime continued.
Two of Braden Holtby's 13 career shutouts have come against the Canadiens. Eight have come on Saturdays. The Caps and Habs face off at 1 p.m. on CSN.
