Washington Capitals goaltender Braden Holtby was injured at practice on Tuesday, reports The Washington Post’s Isabelle Khurshudyan.

According to Khurshudyan’s report, Holtby collided with a teammate on the ice and then headed to the locker room to tend to an injury. He was seen stretching his leg following the incident.

The 26-year-old Holtby, an All-Star, has allowed just two goals on 93 shots through three games in Washington’s first round series with Philadelphia, which the Capitals now lead 3–0.
