Peters allowed four goals on 34 shots during Tuesday's loss to the Devils.
The career backup had appeared in 81 previous games and posted a .901 save percentage, so his mediocre outing on Tuesday was in line with what should be expected from Peters. He's best viewed as a desperation fantasy option at this point.
Peters will start between the pipes in Tuesday's road game against the Devils.
Peters was sharp in relief of Louis Domingue in Thursday's matchup with Montreal, stopping 23 of 24 shots after entering the game in the second period. The 30-year-old goaltender will be a high-risk, high-reward play in daily contests Tuesday, as he'll be taking on a Devils team that has averaged just 1.60 goals per game this season, last in the NHL. However, he hasn't started an NHL contest since he was with the Capitals in 2014-15.
Peters saved 23 of 24 shots after replacing Louis Domingue in the second period of a 5-2 loss to the Canadiens.
Domingue struggled mightily, giving up three goals to start the second period. Peters was recalled on Wednesday due to Mike Smith's lower-body injury and could see a few spot starts moving forward. However, the netminder is not one to target unless desperation calls.
