Washington Capitals Player News: Last 24 hours, All Positions

News: Holtby will be the home starter against the Senators on Wednesday, the Washington Post reports.
Impact: Holtby has been a little inconsistent this season, which has left him with a 2.66 GAA and a .919 save percentage. Both would be his worst performance in those two categories since 2013-14 if they hold. However, Holtby does have a strong track record (and also seven wins in his last 10 games played).
News: Holtby stopped 35 of 39 shots in a 4-1 loss to Calgary on Monday.
Impact: That didn't go as planned, and five power-play chances and 39 shots on goal are the reasons why. Holtby needed to be better than an .897 save percentage, but in his defense, he didn't get much help from his offense or his defense in this defeat.
