Comeback Bid Falls Short For Peters, Caps

News: Justin Peters entered Saturday's game against the Predators late in the third period, stopping 13 of 14 shots but ultimately taking the loss.
Analysis: After starter Braden Holtby surrendered three goals in the game's first 15 minutes to put the Capitals in a large hole, Justin Peters came on for what was just expected to be cleanup duties. Instead, he very narrowly missed out on picking up a point when the Capitals rallied for three goals over a 20-minute stretch. Unfortunately, Peters also yielded a goal to the Preds' Mike Ribeiro during that span, which would ultimately go down as the game winner. Peters might have been in line to get the nod Sunday against the Rangers, but that start now figures to go to Holtby after he was able to take off for most of Saturday's contest.

Caps' Peters Back On Ice Wednesday

News: Justin Peters (lower body) was back on the ice for Wednesday's practice, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The injury kept Justin Peters unavailable during Monday's game against the Sabres, prompting the emergency call-up of Philipp Grubauer from AHL Hershey. With Grubauer since reassigned back to the minors, it looks as though Peters will be ready to reprise his backup duties Thursday in Minnesota. Peters has seen scarce usage this season behind Braden Holtby, the league leader in goalie appearances. He's gone an unremarkable 3-5-1 with a 3.38 GAA and .879 save percentage across 11 games.

Caps' Peters Still Out

News: Justin Peters (lower body) won't suit up Monday against the Sabres, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It's a game Justin Peters may have started, health permitting, but instead Philipp Grubauer will back up Braden Holtby, who also started Sunday's win over the Bruins.

Caps' Peters Has Lower-Body Injury

News: Justin Peters suffered a lower-body injury during his relief appearance Friday against the Stars, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters, who stopped all nine shots he faced in the 4-2 loss, was able to finish out the game despite the injury. However, after being held out of Saturday's practice, the Capitals are listing him as day-to-day, and uncertain if he'll be available for Sunday's game against the Bruins. If that's indeed the case, the Capitals would be forced to recall either Philipp Grubauer or Phoenix Copley from the minors as an emergency backup goalie.

Caps' Peters Perfect In Relief Duty

News: Justin Peters made nine saves on nine shots in relief of Braden Holtby in Friday's loss to Dallas.
Analysis: While it wasn't much of a test for Justin Peters, he got the job done in his first taste of action since February 15. Considering Peters owns a lackluster .897 save percentage and Braden Holtby starts almost every game, the 28-year-old isn't worth much in fantasy, except for the occasional spot start.

Caps Go With Peters On Sunday

News: Justin Peters is slated to start Sunday's game against the Ducks, Mike Vogel of the Caps' official site reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters -- who has a 3.58 GAA and .870 save percentage in nine games to date -- will make his first start since Feb. 1, with Saturday's starter, Braden Holtby, earning a rest on the heels of the Caps' 3-1 loss to the Kings.

Cpas' Peters Makes 30 Saves In Win

News: Justin Peters turned away 30 of 33 shots in Sunday's win over the Ducks.
Analysis: A strong outing from the backup, who had given up nine goals in his last two starts. Justin Peters is now 3-5-1 on the season with a .875 save percentage and 3.52 GAA. It's rare when Braden Holtby isn't in the crease, but when he does get that much-needed rest, Peters makes for a decent spot start. He hasn't played great this season, but his performance Sunday could be a sign of better things to come.

Caps' Peters Allows Four In Loss

News: Justin Peters allowed four goals on 40 shots in Sunday's 4-3 loss to the Blues.
Analysis: Justin Peters has struggled in limited playing time this year, though it's hard to fault him for the loss after the heavy load of shots he faced. With a 3.58 GAA and .870 save percentage, the 28-year-old isn't a great fantasy option even when he does play.

Caps" Peters In Goal Sunday

News: Justin Peters will start in net Sunday against the Blues, Mike Vogel of the Caps' official site reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters doesn't receive many outings in net, and his last reminded us why. In his last start, the 28-year-old netminder allowed five goals on 26 shots against the Stars on Jan. 17. He will receive the start again Sunday, but his .864 save percentage and 3.51 GAA in eight games with the Caps are a far cry from his 1.51 GAA and .948 save percentage he posted in two games with AHL Hershey.

Caps' Peters Makes Rare Start, Gets Lit Up

News: Justin Peters gave up five goals on 26 shots in Saturday's loss to Dallas.
Analysis: There is a reason Justin Peters hadn't started a game since Nov.29. While the Capitals decided to give starter Braden Holtby a rest after 21 consecutive starts, Peters' performance Saturday indicates Holtby might not being getting another rest for awhile. The 28-year-old Peters is now 2-4-1 on the season with a lackluster .864 save percentage and 3.51 GAA. Even when Holtby does get the rare night off, Peters hasn't done anything this season to prove he can be trusted in fantasy leagues.

Caps' Peters To Make Start Saturday

News: Justin Peters is in line to make the start in goal Saturday against the Stars, Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington reports.
Analysis: At long last, it appears Braden Holtby's streak of 21 consecutive starts will finally come to an end. It will mark Justin Peters' first start since Nov. 29, so don't be surprised if the netminder shows a little bit of rust in his return. Peters has a 2-3-1 record, 3.28 GAA and .872 save percentage over his seven previous appearances with the Capitals this season.

Caps Recall Peters

News: The Capitals have recalled Justin Peters from AHL Hershey, the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters, who has recorded a 2-3-1 record with a 3.28 goals-against average and .872 save percentage in seven games with the Caps to date, returns to the big club to resume his duties backing up Braden Holtby. In a corresponding move, Washington sent fellow goaltender Pheonix Copley to Hershey.

Caps' Peters Reassigned

News: Justin Peters was reassigned to AHL Hershey after Thursday's loss to the Flyers.
Analysis: He's expected to pick up two starts for Hershey over the weekend before rejoining the Capitals on Monday. Justin Peters' next appearance with the parent club could come next weekend in either Nashville or Dallas, as the Capitals will probably look to give Braden Holtby a breather.

Capitals' Peters Headed Back To AHL

News: Justin Peters will be sent back to AHL Hersey following Thursday's game against the Flyers, Mike Vogel of the Capitals' official website reports.
Analysis: According to Vogel, Justin Peters will start for AHL Hersey on Friday and Sunday, while Pheonix Copley will be recalled to serve as Braden Holtby's backup on Saturday. This appears to be an effort to get Peters some more work, as opposed to a long-term demotion. Peters thus figures to be back with the NHL squad at some point next week.

Caps' Peters Overwhelmed By Leafs On Saturday

News: Justin Peters allowed three goals on 11 shots in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Capitals. He was replaced by Braden Holtby in the second period and reentered the game in third period.
Analysis: Because Holtby ended up allowing the game-winning goal to Tyler Bozak in the second period, Justin Peters wasn't charged with the loss despite putting the Capitals in an early hole. He fared much better when he returned to action in the third period, but most of the credit probably goes to the Capitals defense for tightening things up on his behalf.

Capitals' Peters To Start Saturday

News: Justin Peters will start Saturday's game against the Maple Leafs, Capitals play-by-play announcer John Walton reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters will give regular goaltender Braden Holtby a break and start Saturday for the first time in two weeks. He will have a tough matchup against a Toronto squad that currently sits third in the league with 3.18 goals per game.

Capitals' Peters Surrenders Four Goals In Loss

News: Justin Peters was lit up for four goals on 34 shots in Saturday's loss to the Blues.
Analysis: While it wasn't a horrible outing, Justin Peters have been far from spectacular of late, dropping three of his last four starts. With Braden Holtby locked in as the Capitals' starting goalie, don't expect anything special from Peters. He is 2-3-1 on the season with a .882 save percentage and 3.15 GAA.

Capitals Going With Peters On Saturday

News: Justin Peters will be in the net Saturday against the Blues, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The Capitals will go with Justin Peters after Braden Holtby took a tough defeat Friday against the Devils, stopping 27 shots but letting in the game's only goal. Holtby's excellent play over his last few turns will continue to lock him in as the Capitals' No. 1 goaltender, but coach Barry Trotz won't hesitate to turn to Peters in back-to-back scenarios such as these. The backup netminder owns a 2-2-1 record, 2.98 GAA and .882 save percentage over five outings.

Capitals' Peters Stops 24 Shots In Overtime Win

News: Justin Peters made 24 saves on 27 shots in Saturday's win over the Hurricanes.
Analysis: It was a decent outing for Justin Peters, who is now 2-2-1 on the season. He won't see a ton of action as Braden Holtby's backup, but when he's called upon, he is a reliable fantasy option.

Caps' Peters Will Start Saturday

News: Justin Peters will get the start in net Saturday against the Hurricanes, Michael Smith of the team's official site reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters will get the call against his former team since starter Braden Holtby was in the crease Friday night against the Blackhawks. Peters is 1-2-1 on the season and has given up nine goals in his last two appearances.

Caps Expected To Start Peters

News: Justin Peters is expected to start in the net Saturday against the Hurricanes, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: With Braden Holtby making the start against the Blackhawks a night earlier, coach Barry Trotz figures to give Justin Peters the nod against the Hurricanes, with whom the goalie spent the previous five seasons before joining the Capitals this past offseason. He'll have plenty of incentive to deliver a strong showing with the Hurricanes expected to counter in the net with Anton Khudobin, the netminder who effectively replaced Peters as the top backup behind Cam Ward.

Caps' Peters Struggles In Loss

News: Justin Peters allowed six goals in Sunday's 6-5 defeat against the Coyotes.
Analysis: Justin Peters had been solid in relief of starter Braden Holtby in the season's opening month, but he struggled on Sunday saving just 24 of the 30 shots he faced. He figures to get the occasional start, and most will be better than this performance.

Caps To Start Peters On Sunday

News: Justin Peters will make his next start Sunday at home against the Coyotes, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters will be making just his third start of the season, as the Capitals have relied heavily on Braden Holtby while he continues to perform well in goal. Despite his spotty playing time, Peters has been dependable when called upon, stopping 64 of 70 shots (.914 save percentage).

Capitals' Peters Stops 30 Shots In Loss

News: Justin Peters stopped 30 of the 33 shots he faced in Sunday's loss to the Canucks.
Analysis: It was a great outing from Justin Peters, who falls to 1-1-1 on the season with an impressive 2.01 GAA. Braden Holtby may be the starting goalie in Washington, but Peters can be counted on when he's called upon. The 28-year-old is a reliable backup goaltender who should play around 20-30 games this season.

Caps' Peters Stops 20 In Win

News: Justin Peters picked up a win Saturday night with 20 saves through overtime in a 2-1 shootout victory over Florida.
Analysis: It was a duel of backups, but that's just fine -- a win is a win. He also stood tall in the shootout, allowing just one goal. It's his first win of the season and leaves him 1-0-1 on the year.
