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.

Caps To Start Peters On Saturday

News: Justin Peters will be in the crease Saturday against the Panthers, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: It will more than likely be a battle of the backups, as the Panthers are expected to counter in goal with their No. 2 netminder, Al Montoya. Justin Peters made his first appearance of the season earlier in the week in relief of Braden Holtby, ultimately taking the shootout loss to the Sharks after allowing two goals on 16 shots.

Caps' Peters Makes Season Debut In Relief

News: Justin Peters came into Tuesday's game against the Sharks during the first period and allowed two goals on 16 shots in the 6-5 shootout loss.
Analysis: Braden Holtby was pulled less than 10 minutes into the first period with the Caps already down 3-0, so Justin Peters at least kept them in the game well enough for the offense to send the game to overtime and at least pick up a point. It was his season debut, as Holtby's drawn the first three starts this year. It wouldn't be surprising if the Caps were to go right back to Holtby on Thursday against the Devils.

Caps To Start Peters on Thursday

News: Justin Peters will start Thursday's preseason finale against the Flyers, Alex Prewitt of the Washington Post reports.
Analysis: With Braden Holtby's standing as the Caps' No. 1 goalie secure, Justin Peters will serve as the primary netminder Thursday, with the soon-to-be-demoted Philipp Grubauer backing him up. Peters was reliable while filling in for injured goalies Cam Ward and Anton Khudobin last season in Carolina, posting a 2.50 GAA and .919 save percentage over 21 outings. While Peters not expected to see extensive run unless Holtby succumbs to injury, he could be a useful streaming option when he's slated to start against a weaker opponent.

Caps Sign Goalie Peters To Two-Year Deal

News: The Capitals signed Justin Peters to a two-year, $1.9 million deal Tuesday, Alex Prewitt of The Washington Post reports.
Analysis: The Caps were vocal about their desire to find a capable veteran backup for Braden Holtby, and Justin Peters certainly fits the bill. Peters filled in admirably for Carolina last season when injuries struck Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward, amassing a 2.50 GAA and .919 save percentage in 21 games. With the Capitals firmly committed to Holtby, Peters doesn't possess a great deal of fantasy value unless Holtby falters. It wouldn't be a completely unforeseen development, considering the extent to which Holtby struggled for most of last season.

Canes Recall Peters From Conditioning Assignment

News: Justin Peters was recalled from his conditioning assignment at AHL Charlotte on Wednesday, TSN's Bob McKenzie reports.
Analysis: The Hurricanes decided to bring up Justin Peters before Wednesday's trade deadline in order to avoid using one of their four post-deadline recalls on him. With Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward both signed to multi-year contracts, the Hurricanes could attempt to trade Peters for help on defense or at forward. If Peters remains in Carolina, he'll struggle to see action.

Hurricanes' Peters AHL Bound For Conditioning

News: Justin Peters was assigned to AHL Charlotte for conditioning work.
Analysis: The Hurricanes are likely just looking to get Justin Peters some work in after he's made only one start over the last month and a half. Overall, Peters has been productive for Carolina when given the opportunity to play regularly, but with Anton Khudobin and Cam Ward ahead of him on the depth chart, he'll have a difficult time finding starts moving forward.

Hurricanes' Peters' Return Cut Short

News: Justin Peters, playing his first game since December 27, gave up three goals on seven shots against the Lightning on Sunday. He was pulled after 15:07.
Analysis: Not the kind of return Justin Peters wanted, presumably, and the goaltending situation in Carolina is crowded. Peters was playing well before his injury, but it remains to be seen if he can regain that footing.

Canes' Peters Starting Sunday

News: Justin Peters will start in goal Sunday against the Lightning, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News and Observer reports.
Analysis: Justin Peters will step in for his first start since Dec. 27 in the second half of a back-to-back set for Carolina. He will oppose Tampa's Ben Bishop, who's making his second start in as many days. In nine home starts to this point, Peters has gone 4-3-2 with a 2.18 GAA.

Hurricanes' Peters Handed Third Straight Loss

News: Justin Peters gave up four goals on 26 shots to take his third straight loss Friday against the Penguins.
Analysis: Justin Peters did well to get the Hurricanes a point after he looked to be headed for a regulation loss before teammate Drayson Bowman bailed him out with the game-tying score late in third period. Alas, Peters was no match for a beautiful give-and-go between the Penguins' Jussi Jokinen and James Neal in overtime, ultimately tacking him with the loss. Peters has shown some warts of late with 11 goals allowed in those three consecutive losses, but Cam Ward's continued struggles should keep the Hurricanes' goaltending situation rather fluid.

Hurricanes Will Stick With Peters On Friday

News: Justin Peters will be in goal Friday vs. the Penguins, Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.
Analysis: Despite delivering a poor showing Monday against the Blue Jackets in which he let in four goals on 25 shots, Justin Peters will be back in the net for the third straight game. At this point, it's clear that coach Kirk Muller doesn't quite trust Cam Ward to find his form on a consistent basis, opening the door for Peters to make a greater share of the turns in goal. Monday's outing aside, Peters has been superb this season, owning a 2.30 GAA and .926 save percentage in 19 appearances.

Hurricanes' Peters Lets In Four In Loss

News: Justin Peters gave up four goals on 25 shots in a loss to the Blue Jackets on Monday.
Analysis: This is a poor start for Justin Peters, but he's having a good season. He still has a .926 save percentage.

Canes Expected To Go With Peters On Monday

News: Justin Peters is expected to get the start Monday against the Blue Jackets, Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer reports.
Analysis: With Cam Ward and the injured Anton Khudobin remaining out on the ice after the main group left practice, Justin Peters looks set to make his second consecutive start for the Hurricanes. Peters is coming off of a draining overtime loss to the Lightning on Saturday in which he stopped 47 of 50 shot attempts.

Canes' Peters Brilliant In OT Loss

News: Justin Peters put in a stellar, 47-save performance Saturday against the Lightning, but ended up on the losing side of the ledger in a 3-2 overtime defeat. '"Sometimes the goaltender is the best player on the ice, and he was tonight," Lightning coach Jon Copper said about Peters. "Fortunately for us, we got that extra one by him."
Analysis: The game-winner came on a three-on-one rush. He stole a point for the Canes and was head-and-shoulders the best Cane on the ice. He continues to outplay Cam Ward, but the team isn't ready to hand him the keys to the car just yet. Too bad -- he'd really help both the Canes and his fantasy owners with starter's minutes.

Canes To Start Peters On Saturday

News: Justin Peters will be in the crease Saturday vs. the Lightning, Mike Maniscalco of 99.9 The Fan reports.
Analysis: After another dud by Cam Ward a night earlier, Justin Peters will get the turn in the net for the third time in four games. As the more highly compensated of the two goalies, Ward will be given every chance to hold off Peters, but it's becoming increasingly difficult with the backup netminder posting dramatically better ratios in the net.
