News: Holtby made 24 saves in a 2-1 loss to the Sabres on Saturday night. Impact: He's looking good of late, and despite his 7-5-2 record, his overall game has been better than last year. Barry Trotz has had a good influence on that; fantasy owners would love to see some more wins, though. They should come. Use him.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby will be in the crease Saturday against the Sabres. Impact: It's the third consecutive start for Holtby, who has been impressive his last two times out en route to victories over the Coyotes and Avalanche. His solid numbers for the season (7-4-2, 2.26 GAA, .914 save percentage) place him safely in the middle class of fantasy goalies.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby picked up his fourth win in five starts Thursday, limiting the Avs to two goals on 29 shots. Impact: He's been spectacular over these last five games, having given up just eight goals in that span. Holtby has all the skills to be a top-tier NHL netminder, but has struggled with inconsistency, especially early in seasons. But at just 25 years old, we could be witnessing maturation in progress, and it doesn't hurt that Washington's defense has been strengthened this year by offseason acquisitions Brooks Orpik and Matt Niskanen.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby will be in the net Thursday against the Avalanche. Impact: Holtby enters Thursday's game with wins in three of his last four contests, during which he's surrendered a total of six goals. He'll try to keep rolling against an Avs attack that ranks 27th in the NHL with 2.4 goals per game.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby stopped 23 of 24 shots in Tuesday's overtime win against the Coyotes. Impact: Since a three-game skid in which Holtby gave up four goals in each game, the 25-year-old netminder has turned things around dramatically, winning three of his last four games while not posting a save mark under .923.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby will be in the crease Tuesday against the Coyotes. Impact: After yielding the net Sunday to backup Justin Peters, Holtby reenters the net with a 5-4-2 record, 2.41 GAA and .909 save percentage. While not spectacular numbers by any measure, they represent an improvement over what Holtby had provided at this stage last season. He'll have a good chance at lowering that GAA against a Coyotes squad that ranks in the bottom third of the league in goals per game.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby turned away all but one of the 28 shots he faced in Saturday's loss to New Jersey. Impact: Tough break for Holtby, who didn't get any offensive support in a game in which he stood on his head. The positive is Holtby has looked stellar of late, allowing two goals or less in each of his last three starts. He is expected to give way to Justin Peters, however, for Saturday's tilt against the Blues.(RotoWire, )

News: Holtby will be between the pipes for Friday's game against the Devils. Impact: Holtby, who has given up just four goals on 66 shots over his last two games, will be looking for his third consecutive win Friday night. He will take on a Devils team that he limited to two goals in a Capitals victory on Oct. 16.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Holtby stopped 24 of 26 shots Tuesday and got four goals of offensive support to send the Jackets to their ninth consecutive loss. Impact: Not a degree-of-difficulty outing for Holtby, but it's still a fine game -- his second straight strong performance following a period of struggles. The Caps are still looking for more consistency out of Holtby, but so far, he's gained a rep for posting inconsistent results over the course of a long season, but turning it on for the last couple months and playoff time.(RotoWire, )
Tue. Nov 11, 2014
News: Holtby will man the net Tuesday night against the Blue Jackets, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports. Impact: Holtby limited the Blackhawks to two goals on 40 shot attempts his last time out, bringing his record back over .500 for the season. He should be a heavy favorite to come away with another victory Tuesday night, as the reeling Blue Jackets have lost eight games in a row to fall into last place in the Metro Division.(RotoWire, )
Sat. Nov 8, 2014
News: Holtby stopped 38 shots Friday night, beating Chicago 3-2. Impact: The 38 saves marked a season-high for Holtby, who is 4-3-2 with a 2.59 goals against average this season.(STATS, 4:30pm)
Wed. Nov 5, 2014
News: Holtby allowed four goals Tuesday in a loss to Calgary. Impact: The Capitals are sinking, and Holtby has been little help. Washington's goaltender has now allowed four goals in each of his last three starts, dropping his save percentage to .891 on the season.(STATS, 5:36pm)
