Capitals F Tom Wilson out, Ilya Samsonov starting in goal

The Washington Capitals confirmed that forward Tom Wilson will miss his second straight contest and Ilya Samsonov will start in goal for Game 3 Saturday afternoon against the visiting Florida Panthers.

Wilson is considered day-to-day after suffering a lower-body injury on Tuesday during Washington’s 4-2 win in Game 1 of the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Samsonov relieved starter Vitek Vanecek in the third period of the Capitals’ 5-1 loss in Game 2 on Thursday and stopped all 17 shots he faced.

Wilson, 28, registered 52 points (24 goals, 28 assists) in 78 games during the regular season.

Samsonov, 25, was 23-12-5 with three shutouts, a 3.02 goals-against average and an .896 save percentage during the regular season.
