DISCIPLINARY REASONS COULD KEEP PAIR OF CAPITALS OUT FOR A SECOND STRAIGHT GAME

MAY 4, 2021  (14H02)      COOPER GODIN
On Monday night, the Capitals were without forward Evgeny Kuznetsov and goaltender Ilya Samsonov for what the team described as disciplinary reasons.

The pair could also be kept out of the lineup on Wednesday when they take on the New York Rangers once again at Madison Square Garden. Capitals head coach Peter Laviolette didn't have an answer on if they would be in tomorrow's lineup.

"Right now, we're working through things inside the room," Laviolette said on Tuesday morning.

This isn't the first time Kuznetsov and Samsonov have been held out of the Capitals lineup for disciplinary reasons. Earlier this season they broke the NHL's COVID-19 protocol along with Alexander Ovechkin and Dmitri Orlov.

Washington has four games remaining in the regular season, and are currently tied for first in the MassMutual East division with the Pittsburgh Penguins. The Bruins are in third place with 68 points, only three back of Washington and Pittsburgh. If the Capitals are going to want to wrap up the division title and home ice in the first couple rounds of the playoffs, they'll need Kuznetsov and Samsonov to smarten up.
