Holtby, who tied for the league lead with 42 wins and had an NHL-best nine shutouts this season, probably will need to be at his best as Washington attempts to overcome a 2-1 series deficit.

He should get a chance to bounce back Sunday in Columbus, but he has a dismal 3.73 GAA in seven career games there.
