Sammy!" the Washington Capitals goalie was filled with emotion."I was close to crying," Samsonov said after making 29 saves in the Capitals' 6-1 victory against the Florida Panthers in Game 3 of the Eastern Conference First Round on Saturday.Moments like this have been fleeting for the Capitals goalies this season, which has been filled with highs and lows for Samsonov and Vitek Vanecek. Game 4 is in Washington on Monday.Although the final score was lopsided, Samsonov was a difference-maker when it was close in the second period, stopping all 13 shots he faced to help the Capitals turn a 1-1 tie into a 3-1 lead."'Sammy' was unbelievable for us tonight," Capitals forward Marcus Johansson said. So Vanecek and Samsonov took turns carrying the load and played well enough for the Capitals to get 100 points during the regular season (44-26-12) and earn the second wild card into the playoffs from the Eastern Conference.The question remains if it will be good enough for the Capitals to knock off the Panthers, who won the Presidents' Trophy as the NHL team with the best record in the regular season (58-18-6, 122 points).And if the Capitals have to change starting goalies again, that's a formula they're comfortable with."We're a successful team, we had 100 points, and our goaltenders were a big part of it," Laviolette said.
