Holtby made 22 saves in Thursday's 7-3 win over the Blues.
Analysis: Holtby bounced back from his roughest outing of the season, having been pulled after giving up five goals on 26 shots in an 8-7 overtime loss at Pittsburgh on Monday. Washington next plays Saturday in Dallas, a team against which Holtby is 0-3-0 with a 4.42 GAA in four games.
Allen had another horrific outing Thursday, allowing four goals on 10 shots and getting pulled in the second period of a 7-3 loss to Washington.
Analysis: Allen has allowed 10 goals on 36 shots in his past three starts and was pulled from all of them. His time in the Blues' net could be up, especially with the team calling up goalie Pheonix Copley from the AHL on Friday. "I don't know how far it sets him back," Blues coach Ken Hitchcock said of Allen on Thursday. "... There's a lot going on right now. He's kind of locked up mentally, and he's going to have to fight through this.
The St. Louis Blues recalled Copley from the Chicago Wolves of the American Hockey League on Friday.
Analysis: Copley, 25, was originally acquired by the Blues via trade from the Washington Capitals on July 2, 2015. The 6-foot-4, 196-pound goalie has been in 18 games with the Wolves this season and shares 10th in the AHL overall with 11 wins (11-4-1) while tied for ninth in both goals-against average (2.32) and save percentage (.920).
Andersen stopped 36 of 40 shots in Thursday's loss to the Rangers.
Analysis: At least one member of the Leafs felt Andersen wasn't to blame for the loss. "We weren't on top of their D, they had a lot of shots on Freddy. Freddy kept us in the game for most of the game there," center Zach Hyman said. Regardless, Andersen hasn't been a good fantasy option in 2017 with a 3.72 GAA and .888 save percentage.
Lundqvist provided a much-needed solid performance Thursday with 23 saves in a 5-2 win at Toronto.
Analysis: Lundqvist had allowed a career-high seven goals in his last start, the fourth straight game he surrendered at least four. "It's just one game but it's something to build off," Lundqvist said Thursday. "You take it one by one, that's all you can do. It hasn't been fun the last few days, I'm not going to lie. But I worked hard in practice."
Grabner scored a short-handed goal and an empty-netter - both in the third period - in Thursday's win in Toronto.
Analysis: Grabner, who had nine goals in 80 games last season with the Leafs, has 21 goals this season for the Rangers - his first 20-goal season since 2011-12 while with the Islanders. Oddly, he has one point in his last 15 home games but seven goals and three assists in his last five on the road.
Silfverberg did not return Thursday after leaving 3:10 into the third period when Colorado's Nikita Zadorov checked him hard into the right corner of the Ducks' zone.
Analysis: Coach Randy Carlyle said after the game he was being evaluated, so it's unclear if this is anything serious. It's being called an upper-body injury. The top-line winger is fourth on the team with 29 points.
Niederreiter had two power-play goals and an assist, including the go-ahead score for the Minnesota Wild with 7:06 remaining in a 4-3 victory over Arizona on Thursday night after the Coyotes came back from a two-goal deficit.
Analysis: He has three goals and two assists in three games.
