Goalie Update: Hiller and Holtby expected to start Sunday

Braden Holtby, who missed Friday’s game due to illness, is expected to return to the Washington Capitals net for Game 3 on Sunday.

Holtby made 23 saves in the Caps’ Game 1 loss to the Islanders.

“I don’t think there will be any questions,” said Holtby when asked about his health. “I don’t know if I lost more energy stressing out through the game or through the sickness.”

Philipp Grubauer made 18 saves in Friday’s 4-3 Game 2 win.

Jonas Hiller will return to the net on Sunday when the Calgary Flames host the Vancouver Canucks in Game 3.

Hiller left Game 2 late in the third period after allowing three goals on 29 shots in the Flames’ 4-1 loss.

Karri Ramo played 4:58 in relief.
