Analysis: Samsonov was one of four Capitals found to have recently gathered in a hotel room instead of a team-approved area, and coach Peter Laviolette later said that the players were deemed close contacts of someone who tested positive for COVID-19. With Henrik Lundqvist out for the season, the Capitals will have to turn to rookie Vitek Vanecek at goaltender for the time being.
