Capitals' Braden Holtby: Between pipes Wednesday

Holtby will get the starting nod for Wednesday's clash with Chicago, Brian McNally of NHL.com reports.

Holtby got a rare night off Monday even as the Caps were not heading into a back-to-back but still opted to use Philipp Grubauer in the net. With the veteran Holtby well rested, he should be ready to face a Blackhawks squad that is averaging 3.03 goals per game -- 10th highest in the league. The last time these two clubs went head to head, the 28-year-old faced 24 shots on goal and stopped them all.
