Holtby allowed two goals on 13 shots after replacing Jaroslav Halak in goal on Tuesday. Halak took the loss last night, so Holtby will go this afternoon vs. the Islanders.

Neuvirth was the first goalie off this morning and was scheduled to start tonight, but Braden Holtby led the team onto the ice for warmups. There were reports that Neuvirth did not look 100 per cent this morning and maybe missing tonight's start because he is feeling under the weather, we will update when we hear something.
