Capitals Vs. Canadiens: Eric Fehr Returns, Braden Holtby To Start In Net

The Caps will take on the Montreal Canadiens tonight, and Bruce Boudreau will have some lineup shifting to do at multiple positions.

In net, Braden Holtby will start tonight due to Michal Neuvirth still suffering from an illness. When asked about possibly playing Semyon Varlamov, coach Boudreau said he did not want to play Varly in back to back games right after he had missed a month due to an injured groin.

The goal tender situation has certainly been a popular one among fans, as they want to figure out who should be the top two goalies going into the NHL playoffs. While some say it should certainly be Neuvirth and Varly, some fans are wondering if Holtby should get a shot.

In addition to the change in net , right winger Eric Fehr will return to the lineup as he still tries to get back into a groove after his shoulder injury.
