Washington Capitals goaltender Branden Holtby and his wife rescued a kitten from a bridge late Monday night.

According to Holtby’s wife, Brandi, the two were taking a walk across the Woodrow Wilson Bridge when they encountered the kitten hiding in an outcrop by the road. “With the help of some amazing strangers, a can of tuna, and a bit of patience we got her out!” said Brandi on Twitter. Holtby can be seen holding the box with the kitten inside. (RELATED: Gretzky And Ovechkin Play NHL20 For Charity)
