The Capitals visit Boston for Game 1 with Braden Holtby expected to start in net
Vokoun is recovering from a groin injury that has sidelined him since March 29, when he left a game against Boston.
Holtby has made 18 career regular-season starts, only six this season. His is 14-4 with a 2.02 goals-against average in the NHL.
He says he doesn't "want to get too jacked up or anything" and that he will "go out and play, try and play my game, do what's made me successful."
