News: Holtby will start Wednesday against the Oilers. Impact: Holtby has had a nice start to the season, posting a 2-0-1 record and a .932 save percentage in four games, despite getting pulled in Washington's game against the Sharks last week. Holtby is the clear starter over Jason Peters and unless he gets injured or struggles during the season, he should remain between the pipes for the Capitals nearly every night.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby turned away 26 of 28 shots in Thursday's victory over the Devils. Impact: After an awful game against the Sharks on Tuesday, when Holtby gave up three goals on seven shots before being yanked, it's nice for him to bounce back with another strong performance. Even with that rough outing, he's only given up six goals so far this year.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby will be in goal for Thursday's game against the Devils. Impact: Holtby will look to get back on track after being pulled in the first period of Tuesday's start. He will take on a Devils squad that sits at 3-0-0 and has scored 13 times through three games.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby was pulled in the first period Tuesday against the Sharks after yielding three goals on seven shots. Impact: Holtby had been excellent in his first two outings, as he came into the night sporting a 0.48 GAA and .981 save percentage.

News: Holtby will be the starting goaltender in Tuesday's game against the Sharks. Impact: Holtby has been stellar to start the season, giving up just on goal in 125:00 TOI. He will be tested Tuesday by a Sharks team that won its first two games of the season by a combined score of 7-0.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby will likely start Tuesday's game against San Jose, the Washington Post reports. Impact: A night off may be coming in the near future, however, as the Caps want to ensure that Justin Peters doesn't sit on the bench too long between starts. Peters may get a look Thursday against the Devils or Saturday against the Panthers before the Caps embark on a road trip. Holtby has allowed just one goal in his first two starts this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby will be in the crease Saturday against the Bruins, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Holtby was stellar for much of the preseason and performed admirably in Thursday's opener against the Canadiens, stopping 23 of 24 shots before falling in a shootout. It may be tough for Holtby to come away with his first win of the season with the Bruins starting the incomparable Tuukka Rask in the opposing goal, but the improved netminder should at least give the Caps a fighting chance at staying competitive on the road.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby stopped 23 of 24 shots in Thursday's opener against the Habs in regulation and overtime, but fell in the shootout. Impact: Holtby shut out the Canadiens for the first 50 minutes before Tomas Plekanec's third goal of the young campaign sent the game to overtime. Though he only came away with one point for the Caps, Holtby played exceptionally well and seems poised for a breakout under new coach Barry Trotz and goalie coach Mitch Korn.(RotoWire, )
