Holtby allowed two goals on 23 shots in a 2-1 overtime loss to the Flyers on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday basically went opposite of how the season has gone for Holtby. His numbers aren't nearly as good as they've been, but he's continued to win this season. On Sunday, Holtby was very sharp, but it ended in a losing effort during overtime. Holtby has failed to live up to high expectations, but he's still one of the best goaltenders to have for the second half of the season.

Holtby will get Sunday's home start against the Flyers, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Flyers have won six of their last seven contests and averaged four goals per game in that stretch. Holtby has a 2-1-1 record with an unexciting .906 save percentage and 3.20 GAA in four games since the calendar flip. Fantasy owners should still consider Holtby a worthy start since he has won 11 of his last 15 starts since the beginning of December -- even if his .916 save percentage in that span isn't flashy.

Holtby only saved 28 of 32 shots during Thursday's 4-3 overtime loss to New Jersey.

EDGE Analysis

Holtby's won 24 of 34 starts for the season and boasts a respectable .916 save percentage and 2.70 GAA. Those aren't the Vezina-level numbers he's posted over the previous three years, but considering the volatility in the goalie position this season, fantasy owners shouldn't complain too much. After all, since the calendar flipped to December, Holtby has won 11 of 15 outings and only allowed more than three goals twice.

Holtby will be tasked with fending away pucks from the visiting net Thursday against the Devils, Mike Morreale of NHL.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holtby has had a pair of four-game winnings streaks in his last 10 starts, but he's coming off a 30-save loss to the Hurricanes in his last time out. His best efforts over that stretch have come at home, which will not be the venue for Thursday's affair against the Devils. He has taken care of business in each of his outings against New Jersey this season, sporting a 2-0-0 record versus the opposition in 2017-18 heading into the matchup.

Holtby saved 30 of 32 shots during Thursday's 3-1 loss to Carolina. The third goal was an empty-netter.

EDGE Analysis

Holtby entered with a sterling 15-4-0 record, .932 save percentage and 2.14 GAA on home ice this season, and Thursday's tough-luck loss should be viewed as another solid showing. His road numbers (.894 and 3.56) remain concerning, but whenever the established star patrols the blue paint at Capital One Arena, he should be viewed as a high-end option. Additionally, it wouldn't be surprising if Holtby's away marks improved in the second half of the season based on his track record.

Holtby will start in goal Thursday night, fielding shots from the visiting Hurricanes, Isabelle Khurshudyan of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Capitals plan on giving backup netminder Philipp Grubauer the nod against the 'Canes on the road Friday for the second leg of the back-to-back set. Holtby needs just one more win to reach 25 for the season. While he hasn't pitched a shutout, the elite goalie's starts have been relatively tidy, as there are zero overtime losses on the ledger for the 28-year-old, who defeated Carolina on the road Jan. 2, pushing away 34 of 38 shots in the process.

Holtby stopped 31 of 34 shots in Sunday's win over the Blues.

EDGE Analysis

Holtby made some massive saves in the extra frame to help secure his fourth consecutive victory. The 28-year-old continues his marvelous season, as he owns a 24-8-0 record with a .917 save percentage. Holtby rarely loses and is in the cage almost every night for the Capitals, making him a must-own fantasy netminder.

Holtby's listed among NHL.com's "Players to Watch" column as a home starter versus the Blues on Sunday.

EDGE Analysis

Holtby has 10 wins and only two regulation losses since the beginning of December. However, he has yet to record a shutout this season after grabbing a career-high-tying nine of those in 2016-17. The Canadian backstop will field shots from a Blues team that is looking to avenge for its 6-3 loss to the Flyers on Saturday, but may be a bit taxed playing its second game in as many days.

Holtby's 34 saves propelled his club to a 5-4 overtime victory Tuesday in Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Holtby's 2.68 GAA and .917 save percentage represent a decline in form compared to his dominant stretch from the previous three seasons, but his 23-8-0 record through Washington's first 41 games has the standout netminder on pace for a fourth consecutive 40-win season. He owes much of his success in the win column to a resurgent Alex Ovechkin, who bailed out Holtby in this one by scoring the tying goal in the third period and burying the overtime winner.

Holtby will tend the twine for Tuesday evening's road game against the Hurricanes, Tarik El-Bashir of NBC Sports Washington reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holtby has won 11 of his last 14 starts and has impressively not allowed more than three goals in any game over that span. That said, the 28-year-old has also allowed at least two goals in each game over that time period as well, but the average play ultimately works in his favor because of the high-powered team playing hockey in front of him.
