Holtby sharp as Capitals beat Flyers to end losing streak

WASHINGTON (AP) Even though the Washington Capitals didn't have peak emotional energy from the drop of the puck, they had Braden Holtby.

They're used to this by now.

Holtby stopped 35 of the 36 shots he faced to compensate for the slow start by his teammates, and the defending Stanley Cup champions beat the Philadelphia Flyers 3-1 on Sunday afternoon to snap a two-game skid. The 2016 Vezina Trophy winner was in late-season form to help the Capitals kill off three of four Philadelphia power plays and avoid what would have been their first three-game losing streak since January.
