Braden Holtby's 'The Save' named best of the decade

Braden Holtby's 'The Save' named best of the decade

It was the save seen around the world and now, it's been named the "save of the decade."

Heading into Game 2 of the 2018 Stanley Cup Final against the Las Vegas Golden Knights, the Capitals were down one game to zero, until Braden Holtby made "The Save."

Named the "save of the decade" by the NHL, Holtby's diving stick save on Alex Tuch's shot on a wide-open net will never be forgotten by Caps fans. As mentioned in the tribute video, "the save" is credited with turning the series around and leading the Caps to their first-ever Stanley Cup championship.

"It's one of those things you dream about as a kid," Holtby said.

"The save" will not only be remembered as the greatest in Capitals history, but in the decade as well.

New Capital Brenden Dillon doesn't miss a beat during pregame handshakes

New Capital Brenden Dillon doesn't miss a beat during pregame handshakes

Prior to Thursday night's game against the Jets, the Capitals got ready by partaking in a pregame ritual of handshakes, and it seems new Capitals defenseman Brenden Dillon already has it down.

The Capitals are already known for having an impressive number of pregame handshakes, but with the addition of Dillion at the trade deadline, it seems things have become even more complicated. 

In the video of a hallway at Winnipeg's stadium, Dillon is seen fist-bumping a few of his teammates, fixing his hair with Carl Hagelin, giving a little more intricate handshake to Tom Wilson and tapping sticks with Alex Ovechkin. 

While all of this is going on, more players in the back of the video start doing their own handshakes. Glad to see Dillon fitting in so well with his new teammates.
