The Capitals have recalled goaltender Braden Holtby from the Hershey Bears for tonight’s game against the Penguins.

Michal Neuvirth, who missed practice on Wednesday with a lower-body injury, did not make the trip to Pittsburgh. Coach Bruce Boudreau termed Neuvirth’s status as “day-to-day” Wednesday, but I’ll get an update on the 23-year-old goaltender later this morning.

This likely means that Tomas Vokoun will get a chance to redeem himself against the Capitals’ biggest rival after a poor debut performance against Tampa Bay earlier this week.
