Tonight's lineup: Caps at Devils

Although Michal Neuvirth was the first goaltender off the ice at this morning's skate, it appears as though Braden Holtby will start for the Capitals against the Devils as he led the team out on to the ice for the start of warm ups. It doesn't look like this start...
