Samantha Pell of the Washington Post: Washington Capitals coach Peter Laviolette doesn’t need to decide between Ilya Samsonov or Vitek Vanecek just yet. Both have come up big at times, but neither has any playoff experience.

Adding an experienced goaltender at the deadline is an option. Last month GM Brian MacLellan said he’ll paying attention to his goaltenders and make a decision closer to the deadline.
