Samsonov looking good, it is a shame Islanders got that fluky goal.  Hopefully we will shut the Islanders down in the 3rd period and Samsonov will get the win but I am sure the Islanders are going to throw everything they have at him.  Hopefully, the Caps don’t sit back but continue to attack and get a couple of more goals.

it’s early, but so far I’m liking the new squad. Great debut by Samsonov

Great win, Caps shut them down in that 3rd period.  Islanders had few quality scoring chances, again our defense was amazing and what can you say about Zamsonov.  Carlson had another sound game.

Yeah, I'll take 2-0 in two tight games on the road against two likely playoff teams.

Thought Or.ov played well. Gudas, not so much, although the kid was solid. Vrana will score 40 this year if he stays aggressive

Tomorrow's game should be a very tough fight. Canes are dirty, nasty, and they will bring all that since they can't play hockey. So expect a tough fight, but an easy hockey win.
 :snicker:


I thought Gudas was hustling pretty well tonight, as he did last game too. I find it amazing that this 31 year old has grown an inch since last year. Was listed as 5'11" last year. This year he is listed as 6'0".

Here's a few that grew since last season. These are from my records. All wen't from 5'11" to 6'0".

2018-2019
Travis Boyd            72   C    R   5' 11"  185   Sep 14, 1993    Edina, MN, USA
Shane Gersich        63   LW  L   5' 11"  175   Jul  10, 1996      Chaska, MN, USA
Carl Hegelin           62    LW  L   5' 11"  186   Aug 23, 1988    Sodertalje, SWE
T.J. Oshie               77   RW  R   5' 11"  195   Dec 23, 1986    Everett, WA, USA

2019-2020
72 BOYD, Travis        6’0” 190 Right   9/14/93   Hopkins, Minnesota CAPITALS NHL
63 GERSICH, Shane  6’0” 180 Left     7/10/96   Chaska, Minnesota Hershey AHL
62 HAGELIN, Carl      6’0” 185 Left    8/23/88   Sodertalje, Sweden CAPITALS NHL
77 OSHIE, T.J.           6’0” 195 Right  12/23/86 Everett, Washington CAPITALS NHL

I'm happy we're going with Samsonov as backup. Even if he's not as polished or experienced as a guy like Copley, I'd rather have a young guy with room to grow getting the opportunities to grow here, than have a guy who's halfway through his career and has already hit his ceiling.

Has anyone heard, did Copley clear waivers?


He may have been sent down, but he's sill an important piece of the organization if there is a goalie injury.


To answer my own question, apparently he did.  He is listed on the Hershey roster, along with Vanacek, as the goalies.  That is a pretty strong AHL goalie tandem.

As long as he gets enough work here to continue his development.  Interestingly, the Caps have only 12 back-to-backs this season, so the team is going to have to find a lot of other opportunities for him to get in there.  Hopefully the goaltending load will be split perhaps about 2 to 1, with Holtby getting, say, 55 starts and Samsonov the other 27.
